Suspected gunmen have invaded schools and markets in Onitsha and nearby communities in Anambra State on Tuesday, as source maintained that they are implementing “Biafra Day” in the state.
There was anxiety among aborigines who wanted to go out for their daily businesses following the ugly scenario.
A source who don’t wants his name in print, stressed that the bandits invade the axis, due to the shift of the Biafra Day celebration which normally occurred on the 30th May, in every year which was yesterday’s sit at home executed by group.
While some resolved to stay indoor for fear of being attacked, some of those who stepped out, returned home with stories.
Residents also posited that the outlaws stormed the market as early as 8:45am and compelled them to close their shops and go home.
“They said today must be observed as sit-at-home to mark the annual Biafra Day because yesterday was the normal Monday sit-at-home day and not Biafra Day,” a trader who spoke on condition of anonymity asserted.
“There’s no sit-at-home at all in the entire Southeast. Please disregard such information,” he said.
Congress gathered from a source that there was a fierce gun battle between the security personnel and the hoodlums in Idemili axis of the state.
