Monday in Ebonyi State saw a flurry of socio-economic activities, as residents carried on with their ordinary tasks, enjoying a sense of security without facing any harassment or assaults from individuals believed to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The Army and other security agencies initiated their show of force on Sunday, and this continued into Monday morning, marked by the presence of security vehicles stationed strategically throughout the capital city.

Kpirikpiri Market witnessed bustling business transactions between buyers and sellers, unhindered by any restrictions, coinciding with the opening of Dominion City, Abakaliki, for the ‘Dominion Leadership Institute, DLI’ training program in the State.

Despite the positive developments reported, apprehensions still persist regarding possible disturbances in the State tomorrow (Tuesday) if security forces do not effectively handle the enforcement of Simon Ekpa’s 14-day sit-at-home order.
