Economic and social activities have been paralysed in Imo over the Sit-At-Home order by Nnamdi Kanu’s Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The sit-at-home, to commemorate Biafra Remembrance Day, is scheduled for 30 and 31 May, but people are already staying at home for fear of possible attacks.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that residents of the state deserted markets and streets of the state capital for safety.
The statement issued by Kanu said the day was set aside in remembrance of over 5 million Biafrans who died during the 1967-1970 civil war in Nigeria.
NAN reports that people also kept away from the Government House axis with businesses around it under lock and key, while a combined team of security agents were seen patrolling the streets of the state capital.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, CP Abutu Yaro had earlier issued a statement, assuring residents of adequate security and urged the people to ignore the threat.
But only the presence of the military and police forces were noticed on the streets, while people kept away from the popular Ekeukwu Owerri Market and the timber market in Naze.

They made the appeal after a Pad A Girl Campaign organized by Media Mentors Network in collaboration with Succeeding Against All Odds and Niger State chapter of the Network of Reproductive Health Journalists of Nigeria (NRHJN) to commemorate the World Menstrual Hygiene Day.
