According to one of the reports, the streets of Enugu were totally deserted with the exception of some secondary school students writing the National Examination Council (NECO) that were seen.


Recall that IPOB, had penultimate week, threatened a lockdown of the South-East geopolitical zone from Monday, August 9, 2021, until Kanu is released. The group’s Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Powerful, stated this in a statement on Sunday.

According to him, “Consequently, there will be no movement throughout Biafra land on Mondays until our leader who is suffering for our freedom is released. This protest is peaceful but firm. Everybody is advised to stay indoors in total compliance.”

However, in another statement by the IPOB leader’s younger brother, Kanunta Kanu, IPOB explained that it arrived at the decision to cancel the earlier order, after listening to pleas from well-meaning individuals and groups that the order is suspended to allow students in Igbo land to participate in the NECO examination.
