Some hoodlums suspected to be supporters of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, have burnt a tricycle and a bus while executing the sit-at-home order of the group in commemoration of the invasion of the home of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in 2017.

The tricycle operator, who was attacked in Awka, the Anambra State capital on Tuesday morning along Arthur Eze Avenue, also reportedly sustained machete cuts on his limbs, and he was dispossessed of his tricycle, which was then set ablaze.

According to Daily Post, the charred tricycle was still at the location where the sad occurrence occurred.

In Nanka, Orumba North Local Government Area, also in Anambra, a town service bus, which was said to be transporting passengers from Awka to Ekwulobia, was also attacked by persons alleged to be enforcing the IPOB directive, who set it ablaze.

A source said the passengers, who were being conveyed by the bus were left untouched, as they were made to disembark, before the bus was pushed into a ditch and set ablaze.

The Spokesperson of the Anambra State Police Command, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, refused to confirm the incidents when contacted.

He simply stated that men of the command had been at places where some incidents had been registered, and had restored normalcy in such places.

“The command and other security agencies have since intensified patrol and surveillance. Police personnel are on ground and the situation is being monitored. Normalcy has also been restored in some of these areas,” he said.
