Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano led a protest Monday against the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
After traders refused to engage in economic activities, Obiano led a protest in Awka, the state capital.
Shauntv reported how the outlawed group’s sit-at-home order crippled economic activity across the state.
All banks along the Onitsha-Enugu expressway in Awka have locked their gates against customers, while transporters have withdrawn their vehicles from various parks in the state capital.
Although the popular Eke-Awka market was open, traders refused to open their shops.
When our reporter visited the market, he found the gates were open but there were no traders.
Nevertheless, some traders opened their stores after the governor intervened.
