As Buhari arrives in Imo, roads deserted, banks, others shut down
Following the arrival of President Muhammadu Buhari to Imo state, economic activities in Owerri and other parts of Imo State were shut down.
The president arrived on Thursday morning for the commissioning of some projects executed by Governor Hope Uzodinma.
Buhari’s decision to visit the state had stimulated tension in the entire Southeastern region following the declaration of sit-at-home by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in solidarity for its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who is currently in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
Although the secessionist group had subsequently denied issuing the order, places such as banks and shops have been shut over fear of attacks by the unknown gunmen who have been causing trouble in the region.
Contrary to calls by some separatists and critics of Buhari, the President received a warm welcome by some citizens of the state upon his arrival.
