On Saturday, residents of Ebonyi State rejected the sit-at-home order proposed by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Hotels, motor parks, markets, and the Abakiliki Rice mill opened for business on Saturday.
Taxis, tricycles, and motorcycles were also available.
On Saturday, our correspondent observed that security agencies patrolled some major roads in the Abakiliki metropolis and its environs.
Kanu warned people in the Southeast not to flout the sit-at-home order on May 29.
Nevertheless, there is still panic due to rumours that the exercise will be held on Monday.
“We, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), led by the prophet of our time, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is pleased to announce that this year’s Biafra Remembrance Day and candlelight procession will take place on Sunday, 30th of May, with a total lockdown scheduled for the 31st of May, not the 30th as announced previously.”
