A Timber and building material market in Orlu, Imo state has been closed down by soldiers on Tuesday July 27.
Further investigations showed that the traders were not allowed to open their shops since they closed it down on Monday July 26 in support of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who was meant to appear before the court in Abuja.
However after they turned up to resume trading on Tuesday July 27, they were stopped by soldiers who asked them to “stay at home until Biafra Republic is attained”.
When the spokesperson for the Police in the state, Mike Abatem was contacted, he simply said he cannot speak on the matter, adding that the question should be thrown at the army spokesperson in the state.
According to TheCable, Babatunde Zubiruo, spokesperson of 34 artillery brigade command in Imo, abruptly ended a telephone conversation with the publication after the issue was raised, and subsequent text messages sent to his phone received no response.
