Recall that few days after resuming office as Governor, Peter Mbah of Enugu state had on June 1 declared “No more sit-at-home in Enugu ” effective from Monday, June 5. He asked individuals and corporate organizations to resume business activities on Mondays, promising safety and security.

Despite the directives and subsequent cancellation, Monday sit-at-home seems to remain in Enugu.

Daily Gazette correspondent who  monitored the situation observed that schools, banks and business premises did not open, while the markets which opened were empty as many were under lock and key.

At ESBS junction, WAEC roundabout, New Haven market, Kenyatta market and Ogui Junction, there were scalatal bus movements while shops were under lock.

At Ogbete Market, despite the heavy presence of joint security operatives, traders and transporters did not come out as major businesses in the area were shut.

Why the fear?
A passersby who spoke on the condition of anonymity told our correspondent that residents seem not confident in the government’s assurance of security.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which initially ordered the sit-at-home, had cancelled it, but a splinter group headed by Simon Ekpa has continued to threaten residents who come out on Mondays with violence.
