IPOB: Gunmen attack secondary school in Imo, chase students doing WASSCE out of exam hall over violation of Sit-at-Home order

Some Unknown gunmen have attacked the Comprehensive Secondary School, Nkume in Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State following the declaration of sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

It was gathered that the armed men invaded the school premises when some students were participating in the ongoing 2021 West African School Certificate Examination (WASCE) and stopped the exercise.

Five hoodlums reportedly destroyed some properties during the attack

Recall that IPOB had ordered that the region must observe sit-at-home every Monday in solidarity for its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services.

On the contrary scene, the Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano, on Monday led a protest against the continued sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra.

He led members of his executive council during the protest visited banks and markets at the state capital.

At Eke Awka market, the governor asked traders to open their shops.

While speaking, He said, “The state must avoid giving urchins the chance to take over the helm of affairs. I chose to lead from the front to end this fear of molestation, harassment, intimidation

Earlier on Sunday Obiano had threatened to seal banks and punish market and motor-park leaders who would dare stay at home on Mondays or any day so declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra.

He directed banks, markets and motor parks in the state to be in operation on Monday unfailingly.
