Owerri, the Imo State capital, has been grounded again as citizens stay back home in compliance with the IPOB sit-at-home order that has been cancelled long ago.

In spite of state government’s effort to encourage people to go about their economic efforts, the citizens across the southeast seem to have come to terms with the IPOB order.

In Owerri, banks, schools, markets and offices remain under lock and key.

Students of Imo State University refused to attend lectures, and parents and guardians kept their children at home.

Mbari, Okigwe Road, Imo State University junction, Control Post Roundabout, Akwakuma, Amakaohia and Wethedral roads, are deserted now.

A few persons who came out were seen trekking as commercial vehicles stayed away from the roads.

Gov Hope Uzodima has always denied the order gets sweeping compliance in the state.
