The masquaredes out to enforce IPOB’s sit-at-home order
Residents of Nsukka were left in a state of shock on Monday as Masquaredes stormed the streets to enforce Indigenous People of Biafra’s sit-at-home order.
This is despite the suspension of the sit-at-home order every Monday in the South East by the group.
Now, residents are afraid to leave their homes.
Today, August 30, many streets in major areas in the South East remain deserted.
Also, there have been reports of masquerades parading the streets to deter people from going about their businesses.
They have reportedly threatened that anyone caught going out will be flogged.
The sit-at-home order was declared to protest the arrest of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu. It was later suspended but residents say this is only in words as people fear they will be attacked if they open their shops or offices.
