The Commissioner of Police in Enugu State, Mohammed Danmallam, has disclosed that residents defied the order by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on sit-at-home.
Danmallam commended the residents for not heeding to the call by the pro-Biafra group.
The CP spoke with newsmen on Friday in Enugu after he led other sister security agencies to monitor the situation in some parts of the state.
The IPOB’s 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.
“I am glad to say that the good people of Enugu State came out in their usual large numbers to conduct their daily businesses,” the Police Commissioner said.
“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.”
