Economic and social activities have been brought to a standstill in Ogidi, Anambra State, over the sit-at-home exercise to mark Biafra Remembrance Day.
Newsbreak reporter who monitored the development on Monday in Ogidi in Idemili North Local Government Area (LGA), Anambra State, reports that residents have deserted markets and streets of the state capital.
In a similar vein, in Imo State, banks, schools and offices remained shut but artisans and roadside traders operated, though not on full scale.

People of the South-east had allegedly been told to sit at home between May 30 and May 31 for the annual Biafra Remembrance Day.
The ‘Biafra Remembrance Day’ was set aside in remembrance of over five million Biafrans who died during the three-year civil war in Nigeria.
The Nigerian Civil War which occurred between July 1967 and January 1970 led to the massive loss of lives on both the side of federal forces and the Biafran army.
