A truck loaded with motorbike spare parts worth millions of naira was allegedly set on fire by hoodlums for allegedly refusing to observe the Monday sit-at-home directive suspended by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

It was gathered that the incident happened around 6 am on Monday at Eluagu Obukpa, in the Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Sources told The PUNCH that the truck which was heading to Enugu-Ezike in the Igboeze North Local Government Area of the state was coming from Nnewi, Anambra State.

IPOB had in August declared every Monday sit-at-home in the South-East to demand the release of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu who is in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).



The sit-at-home which commenced on August 9, 2021, was greeted with outcry by residents of the South-East and pleas from eminent Igbo leaders for the separatist group to rescind its decision.

Though IPOB subsequently suspended the Monday sit-at-home, palpable fear has been pervading the South-East for five Mondays now as residents and traders stay indoors every Monday.
