The sit-at-home exercise ordered by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to solidarise with its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who will appear at the Federal High Court in Abuja today, Wednesday, recorded total compliance in the southeast region, POLITICS NIGERIA reports.
Kanu, who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja since his rearrest in Kenya last June, is to appear in court today for the continuation of his trial.
In Ebonyi and Enugu states, all residents stayed indoors, schools were closed, banks did not open and roads were empty. The same was noticed at Abia, Anambra and Imo, as everywhere was deserted.
There was also no activity in the markets within the metropolis – same with motor parks.
Normal life is expected to resume later today across the southeast after Kanu’s trial.
The lockdown is expected to last for days, as Kanu’s trial will also hold on the 26th May 2022.
