Gunmen Enforcing Monday 'Sit - at - Home' Bomb Imo Market, Injure Traders

| The  Daily Crucible | Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Gunmen have reportedly attacked the seedy Izombe market in the Oguta Local Government Area of Imo State.

The gunmen who struck on Monday  also bombed the market with explosive materials.

They were said to be enforcing the routine  Monday’s sit-at-home order foisted on South East geopolitical zone by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

IPOB had in 2021 directed every Monday sit-at-home across South-East and some parts of South-South to demand unconstitutional release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Kanu from Abia State had been in detention at facility of the Nigeria secret police, Department of State Services (DSS).

Although IPOB had since called off or lifted the Monday sit - at - order in Igboland but some people keep enforcing the order.

The dastardly incident incident left some of the traders with injuries.

It was learnt that the gunmen had visited the market, warning the traders of the fire consequences of defying the Monday sit - at - home when the traders insisted on opening their shops for business transactions, the angry gunmen dashed to two of the  vehicles packed in the market and razed them.

The burning set off a pandemonium and in the ensuing chaos, they lobed local combustible materials into the market and there was an explosion and then fire afterwards.

 Everybody sensing a worse danger afoot, scampered for safety. Many fell and got inured in the process.
