Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, Monday, led a protest against the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to thwart the sit-at-home order of the outlawed group.
Obiano led the protest in Awka, the state capital, after traders refused to engage in economic activities.
Economic activities were crippled across the state as a result of the sit-at-home order.
All the banks along the Onitsha-Enugu expressway in Awka, locked their gates against customers, while transporters withdrew their vehicles in various parks in the state capital.
Though the popular Eke-Awka market was open, traders refused to open their shops for business.
It was gathered that the gates were opened but the traders did not open their shops for business.
However, after the governor’s intervention, some of the traders opened their shops.
In Imo, armed men broke into a school and chased away students who were sitting for an exam.
