Sit-at-home: Gunmen Chase WASCE Candidates Away In Imo

Unknown gunmen reportedly attacked the Comprehensive Secondary School, Nkume in Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State.

This is followed by the declaration of a sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.


The gunmen are suspected to be IPOB members who are trying to enforce the order declared by the group.


The students were participating in the ongoing 2021 West African School Certificate Examination (WASCE) and were forced to stopped.

IPOB had ordered a sit-at-home in the region every Monday to protest the arrest of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu by the Department of State Services


The state government and other stakeholders in the region have spoken against the order but there has been no enforcement as residents live in fear.


There are already efforts ongoing, to ensure an end to the activities of the group but it could only happen if their leader is being released from the custody of the Department of State Security.
