Again business activities stuck in Imo despite IPOB suspension of Monday’s sit-at-home
Commercial activities in various parts of Imo State, mainly at the urban centers, were again paralysed on Monday, just as few vehicles were seen on the roads.
This is as a result of the sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra on Monday.
In fact, for the fifth week running, artisans, civil servants, banks, schools, business centres, and markets — including streets/roadside trading — were all affected.
In Okigwe and Oguta, motor parks were empty of commercial vehicles, while mobile food vendors and barrow pushers were seen nowhere.
Very few filling stations that opened for business within Owerri capital city recorded few vehicles driving in to buy fuel.
Commuters from outskirts of the town trekked long distances to get to their destinations, as the few vehicles on the roads hiked their fares.
Armed mobile policemen were also seen patrolling the roads and streets in their vehicles, while some of them manned strategic government installations and popular junctions.
Areas such as Okigwe, Obowo, Ihitte Ubom, Ngor Okpala did not fare better as people stayed away from public places for fear of possible attack by men of the Eastern Security Network.
