The Comprehensive Secondary School, Nkume, Njaba Local Government Area, Imo State was earlier today invaded by unknown gunmen who were there to enforce the sit-at-home order declared by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
According to reports gathered by SCOOPER, the gunmen invaded the school premises when students were participating in the ongoing 2021 West African School Certificate Examination (WASCE), forcing them to stop the exercise.
During the attack on the school, it was reported that the gunmen destroyed some properties although the items that were destroyed are still unknown as details of the attack are still sketchy.
The police is still yet to confirm the attack as the Imo State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Mike Abattam, did not take his calls and didn’t respond to text messages forwarded to him.
Recall that IPOB had ordered that the region must observe sit-at-home every Monday in solidarity for its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who has been in the custody of the Department of State Services.

Meanwhile, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, former governor of Anambra State has appealed to IPOB to understand that the sit-at-home order is not beneficial to the South-East region of the country.
Ezeife in a chat with Daily Independent on Monday said that the order is highly condemnable because it is affecting the economy of the region adversely.
He said, “I condemn the sit-at-home order because it is not good for our region and it is not beneficial rather it is destroying our economy. I just hope that those behind the sit-at-home order should listen to the voice of reason and call it off immediately.”
While charging IPOB to re consider its sit-at-home order, the former governor said that if Ndigbo is crying of being punished by the current leadership, why should they add to their problem.
He said, “It is unfortunate that if you say that somebody is punishing you, why should you also begin to punish yourself. I made it very clear in a press conference I held earlier yesterday that it is of no use for us to sit at home. We will only be adding to our problem.”
Ezeife in a reaction to the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Imo State on Thursday, said “The President was reported to have said that he didn’t know that we were serious about wanting to be President of Nigeria.
“Well, he said that he didn’t know that we were serious, for someone whose action has always been directed at pushing Ndigbo out of Nigeria. We are hoping for the best in this country. I am happy about that, may be now that he knows it would be an opportunity for him to view things differently.”
