The Imo state government has shutdown several banks in the state over their failure to open on Monday due to the ‘sit-at-home’ instituted by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Emerald News gathered that hundreds of bank customers were left stranded on Tuesday morning as officials of the Imo State Government shut all the banks on Bank Road in Owerri.
The officials used customised ribbons to seal all the various banks as early as 7 am.
The operatives were from the Owerri Capital Development Authority. It can be recalled that the proscribed IPOB group ordered a ‘Sit-at-Home’ exercise in all the south-eastern states every monday to protest the continued detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
However, some of the government officials claimed that the banks were sealed because of ‘building approval plans’
