The sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday registered total compliance in cities across Anambra State.

Markets, banks, motor parks and other commercial places, including schools and government offices, were under lock and key.

Streets around Awka, the state capital, were totally deserted between 7:30 am and 10am when a DAILY POST reporter moved around the city to monitor the compliance level.

Contrary to information by the leader of the IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu that men of the security arm of the group, ESN would be unleashed on the streets to enforce compliance to the order, some motorists attending to emergencies were seen driving along the road without molestation.

DAILY POST however reports that there was heavy deployment of a combined team of security personnel who moved round the town to ensure that no one was molested.

Meanwhile, no incident of violence has so far been registered in the state as a result of the exercise.
