Residents of Enugu metropolis today went about their normal activities disregarding the Sit-At-Home order given by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra.
A Correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria, who monitored the situation in the metropolis following the order, reports that there were no signs of compliance as business premises were open, the roads busy with vehicular traffic and people were seen going about their activities.
This, however, may not be unconnected with the security arrangement by the government of Enugu State and the security agencies that encouraged people to disregard the order and go about their businesses.
It will be recalled that the Commissioner of Police in Enugu State, Mr Mohammad Danmallam, had said that the security community in the South-East has made adequate aerial and land deployment to ensure the safety of citizens.
The IPOB had earlier written to various unions and associations in the states, including local government council areas in the South-East, to shut down businesses and other activities, while it posted notice of the sit-at-home order in strategic locations across the zone.
