Sit at home order issued by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) received total compliance in Aba, the commercial hub of Abia State.
Recall that IPOB had said that Biafraland will henceforth be on lockdown every Monday from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm until its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is released by the Federal Government.
Aba City Blog reports that the compliance in the Enyimba City was 99% as all markets, motor parks, banks, schools and even street supermarkets were completely shut down in total obedience.
The Blog monitored the situation around Ngwa Road, Park Road, Milverton Avenue, Port Harcourt Road, Osisioma, Abayi and Ogbor-Hill and reports that all businesses were completely shut down as human and vehicular movement ceased.
The Aba Motor Park that cuts across Park Road, Milverton Avenue, Asa Road, Hospital Road and York Street were all deserted, as transporters avoided the park.
Ariaria International Market, Eziukwu Market Ngwa Road and the Shopping Centre were all shut down as sellers and their customers were avoided the markets.
It was the same for banks in the city, as all banks along Aba Metropolis in Factory Road, Umungasi, Port Harcourt Road, Azikiwe Road, Faulks Road, Eziukwu Road, Ngwa Road and Ikot-Ekpene Road were shut down.
Businesses like street trading of provisions and beverages, street food vendors and POS operations were not seen on streets and major roads.
