IPOB sit-at-home: Hoodlums burn trailer carrying spare parts in Enugu

A truck fully loaded with motorcycle spare parts worth millions of naira was reportedly burnt by hoodlums for allegedly refusing to obey the Monday sit-at-home order that had been suspended by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra.

The PUNCH reports that the incident happened around 6 am on Monday at Eluagu Obukpa, Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State.

The paper reports that the truck, heading to Enugu-Ezike in the Igboeze North Local Government Area of the state, was coming from Nnewi, Anambra State.

IPOB had in August declared every Monday sit-at-home in the South-East to demand the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is in the custody of the Department of State Services.

The sit-at-home which commenced on August 9, 2021, was greeted with outcry by residents of the South-East and pleas from eminent Igbo leaders for the separatist group to rescind its decision.

Though IPOB subsequently suspended the Monday sit-at-home, palpable fear has been pervading the South-East for weeks now as many residents and traders stay indoors every Monday.
