Many people who traveled to the South Eastern region of Nigeria for one reason or the other, cannot return to their bases as a result of the Sit-at-home order being observed in the region by people pressing for the release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Mazi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, is billed to appear in court on Wednesday in continuation of his trial and his teeming supporters all over the world have been seriously clamouring for his unconditional freedom.
The sit-at-home order which has been hugely supported by the masses in the region is one of the avenues his fans are using to protest against his continued detention. In the past, vehicles found on the road on the day of sit-at-home were set ablaze.
Today, all interstate transport services have remained grounded in Abia, Imo,Ebonyi, Enugu and Anambra ,the five states in the region.
Many who came home from different parts of the country are stranded, as there are no vehicles to transport them back to base.
At some of the transport companies in Umuahia and Aba, where our correspondent went to make enquiries, the company attendants emphatically said they were not loading for today and that even night bus later today won’t be available.
Some of them who had left their villages to where they intended to board vehicles, had to find a place to stay till tomorrow, Tuesday when transport services are supposed to resume.
Findings show that the IPOB leader has a very large fan base who are committed and ready to go to any length to support him. We also discovered that an average south easterner love Nnamdi Kanu and would support any course to see him out of detention.
