…Delta indigenes comply

By Amaechi Okwara

Delta state yesterday witnessed partial compliance in the sit-at-home order by Biafran agitators, of Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Biafra Independent Movement (BIM).
All the schools and business houses were closed, supporters of the
Indigenous People of Biafra at the popular Ogbogonogo market in Asaba, observed with strict adherence.

The owners of eateries and other private businesses, especially the commercial bus drivers, plying Asaba-Onitsha inter-state routs, fully complied, but commercial banks in Asaba metropolis ignored the sit-at-home order.
While the supporters of Chief Ralph Uwazuruike-led MASSOB/BIM did not support of the directive because they had celebrated Biafran Day on May 22, the sit-at-home declaration by IPOB was part of the line up programme of events.

Chief Joseph Odigbo and Emeka Okafor, members of Elders-In-Council of BIM in Delta South and North zones, said nothing would stop them from actualising the sovereign state of Biafra.
Meanwhile, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had urged workers not to panic, but go about their normal duties even as the Commissioner of Police in the state, Zanna M. Ibrahim, had threatened to deal with  any member of the  group found wanting.
