The three major towns in Imo State – Owerri, Orlu, and Okigwe – were deserted on Thursday as the trial over the treason and terrorism charges against the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, by the Federal Government, began at the Federal High court in Abuja.

In Owerri, the state capital, banks, schools, markets, malls, fuel stations, and business outlets were shut down.

All the roads and streets were shadows of themselves, as residents stayed indoors in compliance with the sit-at-home order issued by IPOB in respect to Kanu’s trial.

Thursday’s sit-at-home order in the state appeared to be more successful, as it was difficult to even see a single car ply any of the roads nor see people trekking through.

Unlike the other days the sit-at-home order was observed, security operatives ply the Roads.

Ikenegbu, Government House Roundabout, Mbari, Douglas, Orji, Amakaohia, Imo state University junction, Akwakuma, Control Post junction, Onitsha Road, Aba Road, Fire service junction and Tetlow Road known for huge commercial activities were shadows of themselves.

A resident, who gave his name simply as Chima, said, “We are proud to be Igbo. We sitting at home in solidarity with our brother, Nnamdi Kanu, who is being intimidated by the Federal Government. This is not about Nnamdi Kanu, this is about the Igbo race. We are solidary behind Nnamdi Kanu.

“If they fail to produce him in court today, we shall shut all economic activities in Igboland for the next one month. Enough of this intimidation.”
