The earlier attacks on innocent people by hoodlums to force compliance on the Monday sit-at-home created fear in the State and the students don't have choice than to remain at home on Monday because of the fear of being attacked. 

The decision to adopt Saturday as a school day to replace Monday came few weeks after the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano led protest in Awka, the State capital to encourage the residents of the state to ignore the Monday sit-at-home and come out every Monday for their businesses.
