The sit-at-home announcement by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for yesterday was partially observed in Ebonyi state.
Our correspondent observed that between 8am and 9am, only few banks opened while others were under lock and key.
There were few commuters on the roads between 10am and 11.30am.
Some private schools did not open as letters had been written to parents informing them that there would be no academic activity in schools.
Blueprint reports that those that opened had few pupils and students as some as some parents stopped their wards from going to school.
National Leader of Biafra, Comrade Uchenna Mmadu, in a statement emphasised that Biafra was not against the existence of Nigeria, “but can exist as a sister nation.”
Leader of IPOB in Ebonyi state, Ugochukwu Nweke, said he had monitored the movement and that there was partial compliance, he confirmed the opening of some shops in the market.
