Nnamdi Kanu: Hoodlum enforcing sit-at-home flog traders in Enugu

In Enugu State, hoodlums enforced the suspended sit-at-home set in solidarity with Kanu court trial wrecked vehicles and beat shopkeepers yesterday. 

Residents of Obollo-Afor town, Udenu Local Government Area, was assaulted by hooded gunmen for violating the command, causing chaos. At around 8 a.m, they flogged shopkeepers and destroyed their products. 

The hoodlums, who arrived on motorbikes, assaulted vendors who had just opened their doors. After unloading its occupants, they also set fire to a tricycle.  

Soldiers stationed at a checkpoint along the route came in town at 8:30 a.m. to restore normalcy, according to reports. 

Fearing threats, residents of Enugu’s city abandoned the highways and streets. Markets, schools, workplaces, retail stores, and parks were all closed. 

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has rescheduled their sit-in to protest the incarceration of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu. The practice would only be carried out on the days of his court appearance, according to the statement. 

Kanu is on trial in Abuja’s Federal High Court on treasonable criminal charges. Some Enugu residents refused to come out because hoodlums were running the show.
