People disobeying Ghost Town Order flogged by youths (Video)
Clip surfaces of some youths going after defaulters of the declared sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
IPoB had declared a sit-at-home in solidarity with the detained leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The video which contains different scenes displays deserted streets and expressways indicating compliance with the order tagged ‘Ghost Town’.
Equally, a number of youths in blacktop and trousers monitoring streets and avenues on motorcyclists besieged a biker, flogged, and forced him to lay on the floor.
Reports from several sources confirm residents in the southeast are responding to the order despite the government’s threat to deal with supporters.
Southeast governors had warned civil servants not to obey the order by the Biafran group noting August salary will not be paid to defaulters.
Amid pleas from notable individuals to suspend the widely condemned sit-at-home due to students writing examination, IPOB insists no going back.
Kanu, a British citizen has been under the DSS detention facility since 28 June 2021 after a believed rendition was coordinated by Nigeria and Kenya. Next court seating is expected to hold 21 October 2021.
