TENSION IN OWERRI, ABA AS HOODLUMS CHASE PUPILS, TRADERS OUT OF SCHOOLS, MARKETS

There was chaos in Owerri, Imo State capital, and Aba, Abia State on Monday, following reported gunshots across the cities.


Eons Intelligence gathered that there were gunshots at some areas of Imo State capital, residents of the city scampered simultaneously for safety.


While vehicles made u-turns, markets, business outfits, offices came to abrupt close, even as schools shut down, dismissing pupils and students.


Some pupils were left stranded in schools as their parents and guardians could not find means of going to pick them.

While some reported of gunshots at Akwakuma area of Imo State, some others said they heard the shots at Nekede axis.


The state capital within minutes became a ghost town, as the roads were deserted.

 

Residents of Owerri had resumed Monday economic activities a fortnight ago after staying away from business on Mondays for six consecutive weeks, owing to the earlier sit-at-home ordered by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).


The State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Michael Abattam said there were no gunshots in the city.


“People are just creating unnecessary panic. What is chasing them, nobody sees it. It’s just fake news”, he stated.


Similarly in Abia, hoodlums who allegedly enforced the sit at home order in Aba, the commercial city of Abia State, yesterday, chased away pupils and students from schools.


The hoodlums who wore an all black attire, moved round Opobo Junction, Ogbor Hill axis and forced shop owners who opened for business to close.
