Anambra comply’s with IPOB’s sit-at-home order, shuts down Awka, Onitsha, and other cities.



Anambra sit at home

Awka, Onitsha, Nnewi, Ekwulobia, and other major and minor cities in Anambra State

were completely shut down on Monday in accordance with the Indigenous People of Biafra’s

demand (IPOB).

The organization had called for a weekly economic stoppage in southeast states until its

leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was released from the Department of State Service (DSS) detention.

Yesterday, there was some uncertainty as to whether the drill would go through or not.

This was due to a counter-instruction from Kanu’s brother, who stated that the exercise had

been canceled to allow pupils to appear for the NECO exams.

Emma Powerful, the group’s spokesperson, swiftly denied the report, claiming that the order was sacred.

In Anambra, banks, schools, marketplaces, stores, restaurants, and other businesses were

abandoned during Monday’s sit-at-home.

Even while markets were open, merchants refused to restart operations, according to a Peachright journalist who went about to verify compliance.

The Anambra State Government had threatened to withhold workers’ August wages if they did not return to work on Monday.

Most personnel arrived to work because of the directive, but many departed practically soon after signing the attendance register at the state secretariat facility.


Motor parks were likewise vacant as cars and passengers alike avoided the area, leaving roadways empty.

According to a source in Nnewi, two people were slain very early in the morning at Izuchukwu intersection for daring to come out, according to Peachright.

Their names, as well as the identities of their assailants, were not released.

According to Peachright, police patrol vans were stationed on every main street, sitting civilly in their vehicles, providing security for the few residents who dared to leave their homes.

“The leadership of the market did its best by opening the market, but traders refused to come,” a market leader at Eke Awka market said, declining to provide his name. Some of the shopkeepers have opened their doors, but there are no clients. People didn’t come to the market because they were afraid, not because they wanted to follow the IPOB directive.”

Ronaldo Asks Man Utd board to Replace Solskjaer with Zidane

According to El Chiringuito, Cristiano Ronaldo has advised Manchester United’s board to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Zinedine Zidane.

Following a 4-2 loss to Leicester City on Saturday, Solskjaer has been under greater scrutiny.

The Red Devils have lost three matches in the Premier League.

United’s leadership is said to have given Solskjaer their full support, believing the 48-year-old would enhance the team’s performance.

Senior officials at Old Trafford, on the other hand, are weighing their alternatives and have identified him as a viable contender, based on Ronaldo’s proposal.

According to the report, Zidane has met with United’s management, but he is interested in succeeding Didier Deschamps as France’s new head coach.

It’s also been reported that Zidane was approached by both PSG and Newcastle United, but the former Real Madrid manager declined both offers.
