Residents of various cities in Anambra State, including towns and villages on Monday, observed the weekly sit-at-home exercise with renewed vigour.

This was after last Monday’s incidences of killings, where over five persons lost their lives in various communities in the state to some hoodlums, who were enforcing the order.

After the Easter holiday, residents of Anambra had dumped the weekly sit-at-home and had returned to their normal businesses, but in what looked like a reminder last Monday, there was renewed enforcement of the exercise by unidentified hoodlums, suspected to be IPOB elements, which led to deaths.

DAILY POST reports that there was a total shutdown in major cities including Onitsha, Nnewi, Ekwulobia and Umunze.

In Awka, businesses opened skeletally but the roads were devoid of vehicles, just as most schools, markets, banks and other public places were shut.

A journalist, Mr Ekene Eze said the renewed observance of the Monday sit at home may not be unconnected with the killings last Monday.

“You know, these bad boys know what they are doing. Once people begin to think that normalcy is returning and that they can go to their businesses on Monday again, they will go to obscure places in Anambra and kill people, and the news will spread everywhere, and people will sit back in their houses,” he said.
