Commercial and social activities have resumed in the Eastern Nigerian State of Imo, after the sit-at-home order observed by residents.
The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra had ordered all commercial activities in the East to be suspended in commemorate the 54th Anniversary of Biafra.
Residents across the States where IPOB has influence abided by the order and stayed at home.
Mazi Ken Onwuka, a trader told newsmen that the sit-at-home was a major success and that it communicates to the powers-that-be that the masses also have a voice.
IPOB has been agitating for the nation of Biafra to be recognised as a sovereign state, independent of Nigeria.
Recently, their agitations were seen as acts of terrorism and have since been proscribed by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government, in what many have condemned as witch hunting and nepotism.
This is because the Federal Government has failed to mete out the same ban on killer herdsmen.
