In compliance of the sit-at-home directive given by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to honour fallen heroes who died in the struggle for Biafra, economic activities as well as vehicle movements were crippled in Enugu State.
Markets, banks and various parks were shut down as there were no vehicular movement.
Roads were deserted as most busy roads and streets were taken over by youths and were converted to football pitches.
It was also gathered that all the schools scheduled to resume today for the third term remained shut including some private schools which had already resumed for the third term prior to this time. Most private hospitals were closed except hospitals with inpatients.
The Nation reported that roads were deserted as no vehicle was seen around the popular Holy Ghost, Old Market, Ogbete market, Kenyatta markets, Agbani, Ogui Roads, New Haven, Abakpa and Independence Layout were also void of vehicles.
Security operatives were however, seen patrolling the city to ensure that nobody breached the law.
Other security operatives were stationed at various areas including the three-arm zone, 82 Division of Nigerian Army, various police formations across the state and the Correctional Centre in Enugu.
