On Monday, August 9, at least two people were reportedly killed in Nnewi, Anambra State.
Residents were killed while obeying the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB sit-at-home )’s order.
Gunshots were heard at Izuchukwu Junction around 6:00 a.m. on Monday, according to witnesses.
They had all come out to see two lifeless young men. Nobody, however, could explain who had shot them.
Banks, schools, markets, offices, and other public places remain closed in the meantime. Even the main roads and thoroughfares have been cleared.
Students writing the National Examination Council (NECO) exams were seen going to school in the morning in Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi State.
Also operating were some cars, commercial tricycles, and motorcycles.
Emma Powerful, IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, has vowed that anyone who goes out today (Monday) will regret it and get it hot.
The protest was called by the group to protest the Federal Government’s arrest and detention of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
