Biafra: South-East Massively Complies with IPOB's Sit-At-Home Order

Many major cities in the South-East were almost ghost towns today as there was a massive compliance with IPOB’s sit-at-home order. Major roads, markets and motor parks were deserted.

Commercial operations were non existent. Even the usually busy Niger bridge was deserted as no vehicular or human traffic was visible.

IPOB claims that the order received 70% compliance while the Police in Anambra claims otherwise. In Anambra the order was totally complied with in Onitsha and Nkpor.

However, Awka, Nnewi and some other rural communities had some activities, with banks offering minimal services.

Security operatives were seen at major points, ready to intervene if there was a break down of law and order.

Speaking on the success of the protest, Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary said “IPOB and its leadership commend the worldwide family of IPOB, all traders unions, market leaders, artisans, teachers, bankers, road transport workers, clergy, business men and women across the length and breadth of Biafraland, for observing a solemn day of remembrance in memory of those that died on 14 September 2017 at Isiama Afaraukwu Umuahia.

“Our collective defiance of the oppressors and their local agents has truly marked IPOB as the authentic mouthpiece of the people.

“The predictable biased report accompanied by unrelated photos did not conceal the fact that over 70 per cent compliance was recorded.

“IPOB has once again proved to the entire world that we are in charge of the whole Eastern Region. The sit –at- home order issued by IPOB and observed by Biafrans is an indication that Biafra has come to stay.”
