Pandemonium erupted in Owerri, the Imo State capital, on Monday, as hoodlums attempted to enforce a sit-at-home order earlier announced by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

A source told FIJ that the hoodlums sent primary school pupils home at about 10:30 am, and asked students of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO), to leave the institution’s premises.

The hoodlums also burnt a tricycle for operating and they fired gunshots into the air. In a video obtained by FIJ, residents of the city can be seen fleeing from one of the scenes of the crisis.

IPOB had announced a sit-at-home order on July 30 to be observed on Mondays, starting from August 9, across the South-East in support of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the group who is currently standing trial on terrorism charges.

However, IPOB announced on September 14 that the order would no longer be effective.
