Road Accident

Students and other people flee as gunmen enforce sit-at-home order in Imo State

Gunmen suspected to be Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) were seen carrying guns to enforce sit-at-home orders in 

Owerri, Imo State.

Pandemonium arose as students ran for their lives. Traders abandoned their wares and residents fled to safety.

The uproar was said to have started around 10:00 am on Wethral Road, and then spread to Mbaise Road, Douglas Road and Naze along Aba-Owerri Road.

Schools immediately closed while parents went quickly to pick their children. Traders at the multimillion Alaba International market and Naze Cluster hurriedly closed their shops and locked the entrances leading to the market to prevent pilferage and access. 

Some hoodlums still had the advantage to disperse some of the wares already displayed by shop owners who took to their heels.

The gunmen with boldness storm market places and streets.

The daredevil agitators shot into the air to scare people away. Accidents occurred as vehicles collided with one another.

Other motorists evaded the scene as they made a U-turn.
