Protesters have blocked major roads in Onitsha and Nnewi, Anambra State, in protest against the trial of Nnamdi Kanu in Abuja. Information has it that IPOB had, late on Sunday, sent out signals asking its members to observe a sit-at-home protest in the South-East, in solidarity with Nnamdi Kanu who is appearing in court today.

A source has it that, “We got the signal very late in Awka. So, we could not mobilize to protest in Awka as they are doing in Nnewi and Onitsha. That’s why nothing is happening in Awka and environs.’’

Sources in Onitsha said youths suspected to be members of IPOB made bonfires in most streets, ordering vehicles entering the city to turn back. Shops, markets, and offices were under lock-in Onitsha, while streets were deserted.

Also in Nnewi, it was gathered, the protesters were attacking vehicles that attempted to enter the town.

According to Lizinus Eze, a trader in Nnewi, said, “We heard it yesterday( Sunday) as a rumor that there would not be market today (Monday), but this morning we found out that people were making bonfire everywhere in the city.

“Nobody has spoken to us about what is happening, but we learned that it is IPOB that is trying to force people to stay at home in solidarity with Nnamdi Kanu who is appearing in court today.
