The sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, to mark the 50th anniversary of the declaration of the defunct Republic of Biafra and honour heroes and heroines of the struggle, was complied with in the five states of the South East, yesterday.
Outside the S-East, the directive was partly complied with in Port Harcourt, Asaba and Bayelsa but ignored in Uyo.
Most markets, banks and schools in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo states, including those in the rural areas, were closed and the roads were totally deserted in the early hours of the morning.
The order was also, largely complied with in Enugu, as schools, banks, markets and other commercial activities were paralysed, with police helicopters hovering around Enugu metropolis.
The shutdown of the states was in spite of the plea by South-East governors and massive police and security presence, who patrolled streets and carried out air surveillance with helicopters to ensure that there was no breakdown of law and order.
It’s a huge success—IPOB, MASSOB
Meanwhile, IPOB and MASSOB have congratulated Ndigbo worldwide for showing total compliance with the sit-at-home order.
IPOB, in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Mr Emma Powerful, said the compliance with the sit-at-home directive was an indication that Ndigbo all over the world were tired of the Nigerian federation and ready to leave the country.
The statement said the event, which held at the Grand View, Magodo, Lagos, was attended by the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, who was represented by his Deputy Chief of Staff, Gbenga Makanjuola;
Minister for Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola; a former Minister of Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro; Otun Are Demola Seriki; Deputy Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Wasiu Ehinlokun; and Commissioner for Wealth Creation, Lagos State, Mr. Babatunde Durosinmi-Etti, among others.
The statement said, “His Imperial Majesty said while people would take sides with politicians and develop enmity and grudges for supporters of rival parties, the politicians never take their differences personal and always know how to reconcile behind closed doors.
“He, therefore, advised all Nigerians to learn how to allow politicians settle their differences without interference or unnecessary sensationalisation of issues.
“Oba Akiolu spoke glowingly of the woman and her husband, saying Senator Gbenga Ashafa could only have achieved much because he had a good wife who gave him peace and kept the home front solid.”
Popular Nigerian Popstar, Davido, who is currently trying hard to focus more on his music in a bid to get back to his good old days, is constantly been drawn into paternity scandals.
The Atlanta, USA-based girlfriend of popular Nigerian singer, Davido, who gave birth to a bouncing baby girl few weeks ago, has been seen in new Instagram photos turning up in parties, and flaunting her s*xy post baby body.
The pretty lady identified as Amanda or Mandy, who is the second babymama of the singer, was seen in one of the latest photos smoking a shisha pipe, and even Davido himself also liked the picture.
The HKN Gang singer who is a Lagos billionaire businessman’s son, already has a daughter, Imade from his first babymama, Sophia Momodu.
The multi-award winning pop star is trying hard to focus more on his music to bring him back a spark of his good old days where awards was a regular, something he hasn’t won in over two years.
Recall that Davido in the past, had problems with Imade’s mum, Sophia Momodu after it was alleged that Marijuana was discovered in the little girls blood while she was still breastfeeding.
It sure looks like Amanda didn’t learn anything from that scenario.
IF’ singer, Davido in a funny video mocked One Africa Music Fest promoter and organizer, Paul Okoye after he was surprised to see exotic car of all types parked in front of Paul’s old apartment building.
The Upfront Bookings boss welcomed Davido to his Victoria Island home and the DMW boss was surprised to see exotic cars in-front of an Old building, in a video posted on Instagram the singer said.
“How do you live here but drive this shit,” the stunned singer asked Okoye. “How do you live here but drive all this?” Someone else said ‘Chaii..The house don’t match the car’

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has made his mark as the most successful manager in FA Cup history after leading his side to a 2-1 victory over Chelsea at Wembley stadium.
Arsene Wenger sets historic record with Arsenal’s FA Cup triumph
The North Londoners secured a vita win over the Blues to give a lift from their recent woes, which saw them finish outside the top four for the first time in two decades.
Arsene Wenger who has come under intense criticisms from a large section of fans, may have something to cheer for after sealing the victory over Antonio Conte to become the most successful coach in the history of the competition, surpassing the previous record held by George Ramsay who won it six times with Aston Villa between 1887 to 1920.
Goals from Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey ensured that the Gunners left Wembley stadium as the victorious side, cancelling out Diego Costa’s second half equaliser.
Chelsea might also feel hard done after Nigerian star, Victor Moses got sent-off after receiving a second yellow for diving, reducing the Blues to ten men before Costa riled his shot past David Ospina to bring the game back of level terms. But that did not last long as Olivier Giroud’s cross to Aaron Ramsey ensured Arsenal win their only silverware this season, which also for the 13th time in history.
