Total Shutdown Of Markets In Aba, Port Harcourt As Biafra Supporters Remember Their Fallen Heroes



Aba is the busiest commercial city in Abia State and Oriental Times reporters have observed that a lot of shops in the markets are closed are as a result of the sit-at-home directive from Nnamdi-Kanu’s led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The sit-at-home directive is being observed today, May 30, 2017 to remember the declaration of a Biafran state 50 years ago by the Lt. Col. Odumegwu Ojukwu, and also to honor all those who died fighting for its cause.


This is the second time Aba commercial activities have been shut down as a result of sit-at-home directives for pro-Biafran groups. We have also gathered that in Port-Harcourt, some  of the traders have been mandated to close shops or risk paying a fine.

Some of the traders seen in front of some shops in Ariaria market, Aba, claimed they came out to observe what was happening and not for business.


Oriental Times reporters have noted that there is no case of violence yet on the part of the pro-Biafran agitators and even the Nigerian military have notable kept an eagle eye on activities to make sure the citizens maintain law and order.
