Early reports from Enugu, South East Nigeria indicate that major roads and streets in the capital city are empty of human and vehicular traffic this Monday.
This may be as a result of the civil disobedience called by the regional-based separatist’s group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
IPOB had in the past week called on residents to observe a sit-at-home, directing public and private places to remain shut, while transporters are to withdraw services from the entire South East region.
The spokesman, Emma Powerful in a statement on Sunday evening said, that civil disobedience is to pressure the Nigerian government to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu from the custody of the Department of State Security, DSS.
The city of Enugu is devoid of the usual early morning human and vehicular traffic, otherwise known as “school runs”, very common on Monday mornings.
Parents have withdrawn their wards from classes today, for fear of possible violence that may breakout.
AIT crew monitoring the situation reports that there is little or no presence of security agents on the streets and roads in Enugu.
At the time of this report, no violent incident has been reported in any part of Enugu State.
