Activities are gradually returning in Awka with markets and few banks operating but but markets and banks in Nnewi and Onitsha are still under lock.
 
Residents of Awka capital city have started their normal living but schools are yet to resume as students were sent home by authorities.
 
In Onitsha, sources told The Nation that there were few movements in the commercial city but all the markets, shops and banks were locked.
 
The situation in Nnewi was worst as the roads were still deserted with shops and other activities still on hold.
 
Though the sit-at-home order from the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB) had been suspended by the pro-biafra agitators the fear of ‘unknown gunmen’ has remained with residents.
 
Only few workers were at Chief Jerome Udoji Secretariat and Anambra State Government House on Monday because of the sit-at-home fear.
 
One of the workers told The Nation that many people who live in Enugwu -Ukwu had refused to come to the office because they were warned by the non-State actors
 
A source said: “Those people issued a warning note to the driver who brings them to work that he has been flouting their orders and therefore he should be ready to pay with his life any moment from now, if he fails to desist
 
“As a result, the workers from that area refused to come out again. Only three persons in the entire building that houses over 400 workers came to the office today. IPOB has killed the Igbo economy.”
