Umuahia, Abia State capital came alive with business and economic activities on Monday as shop owners and business establishments opened for business.
It was gathered that government workers also returned to work in various government establishments within the state capital, including banks and other financial institutions.
Business owners around the community of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnmadi Kanu opened for business and had a hitch-free day as they carried out their business transactions without any intimidation by any group of persons.
Some of the residents told our correspondent that they were happy with the latest development and lamented the economic loss that they have suffered in the past weeks as a result of the Monday sit-at-home.
It was however, a different case in Aba, the commercial nerve of the state as most residents of the city stayed indoors.
Though gates to various markets were open, our correspondent however reports that traders and their customers stayed away from the markets including Ariaria International market among other major markets in Aba and its environs.
Some commercial tricycles and intra-city bus drivers that came out had few passengers to board their tricycles and buses.
Some Aba residents including Mr. Onyemachi Chinturu who attributed their compliance to the continued struggle towards the emancipation of the Biafra land from the bad leadership of Nigeria, said that their Umuahia counterparts have the right to choose what to do with their Mondays.
Chinturu who said that he remained proud of Aba residents and their resilience noted that Aba has been the hope of the Biafra nation.
“When Nnamdi kanu came back from prison, did you hear that he was received in Umuahia? The answer is obvious No. Nnamdi knows that the spirit of Biafra dwells in Aba. He knows that his Umuahia people can sabotage him. Ojukwu, an Anambra man told his people to ensure that his body will be brought to Aba before he was buried.
