The Enugu State Police Command has disclosed that residents defied the order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on sit-at-home.
The pro-Biafra’s group sit-at-home order was to protest the planned Operation Python Dance 3; the recent detention of some Igbo women in Imo and the killing of many pro-Biafra agitators in various parts of the country.
Speaking to newsmen on Friday, the state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Danmallam, hailed the residents for not heeding to the call by the pro-Biafra group.
He said: “I am glad to say that the good people of Enugu State came out in their usual large numbers to conduct their daily businesses.
“I have gone round everywhere even to Isiuzo Local Government Council Area and the report from my Area Commanders in Nsukka, Oji River is that normal human and vehicular activities were ongoing.
“We are not leaving anything to chance and we will ensure that no Nigerian is intimidated or molested by faceless hoodlums.”
