In Imo State, banks, markets, and schools are open as the sit-at-home movement fails.

Fast News reports that businesses, including banks and schools, reopened on Monday, one month after the indigenous Peoples of Biafra’s (IPOB) sit-at-home order was lifted in Imo State.

While vehicles swarmed the highways across the state, buses provided intra-city services in urban areas, according to our correspondent who is monitoring the situation.

Commercial activities in places such as markets, business centers, and banks were at their peak.

Pupils, students, and teachers flocked to public and private schools, while civil workers were visible in their offices at the State Secretariat on Port Harcourt’s Road Owerri.

When our eyewitness visited numerous secondary schools and academic institutions in the state, he found that normal operations had resumed.

Students were seen arriving at Nekede Secondary School, Umudibia in the Owerri West Council Area, as early as 7.30 a.m., while those sitting for their WASE entered for their Mathematics, unlike last Monday when some hoodlums disrupted the examination in some parts of the State when the students sat for their English Language.

At some higher education institutions, activities have also restarted.

When the Nation visited Federal Polytechnic Nekede in Owerri, students were spotted performing their registration.

Workers and students have resumed, according to Everest Nwosu, the public relations officer.
