Biafra day : Empty roads in Onitsha, Umuahia
By Steve Oko
There are very strong indications that the sit-at-home order scheduled today in honour of the victims of the struggles for Biafra restoration is enjoying a full compliance across South East region.
Leadership of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, had urged residents of South South and South East to remain indoors today, May 30 as a mark of respect for Biafra fallen heroes and victims of herdsmen and Boko Haram.
According to reports available to our desk desk, Onitsha Bridge Head is a ghost of itself as motorists and pedestals totally kept off the ever-busy Eastern gateway.
The dual carriage high way is completely deserted as can be confirmed by some photos of the area taken this morning.
Some roads in Umuahia, the Abia State capital are also empty compared to how congested they used to be around this time of the day.
The capital city is generally calm and no reports of any violent incident have been received so far.
Security agents were observed earlier in the morning in a long motor cade patrolling the state capital.
