The sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday registered total compliance in parts of the South East Zone of the country, going by reports from our correspondents in Umuahia, Awka, Enugu, the capital cities, respectively, of Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Abia state.
In Awka, markets, banks, motor parks and other commercial places, including schools and government offices, were under lock and key.
When Orient Daily monitored the level of compliance in the area, it was found that streets around Awka were totally deserted between 7:30 am and 10am.
