Yet to be confirmed reports indicate that even the Ogbete main market,Kenyatta market and Abakpa markets have shown signs that there would be no market today.

Schools are also not opening for business , moreso as most of them have finished their terminal examinations and would be formally closing on Friday August 27.

Banks are cautiously on the alert just as the filling stations whose gates are closed with staff standing by.
Curiously, the security operatives seem to be sitting equally at home as no patrol vehicles or itinerant personnel have been sighted so far, not even IPOB members were observed enforcing the exercise.
This is even come after the IPOB Directorate of State, DOS directive suspending the Monday Sit-At-

Pundits blame the continuation on the stampede witnessed last Monday in parts of Enugu and environs.
