Gunmen suspected to be members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) on Monday stormed the Comprehensive Secondary School, Nkume in Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State and stopped students from taking their examination.
The students in the school were said to be preparing to sit for English in the ongoing Junior Secondary School Examination before the gunmen forcefully dispersed them.
Gunmen bearing arms were said to have shot sporadically to disperse students and teachers.
Since IPOB declared Mondays as “sit-at-home” the compliance level has been quite high in a bid to drum support for the release of Nnamdi Kanu, who is facing some charges before an Abuja High Court.
This week, the sit-at-home is expected to continue on Tuesday as Kanu is expected to make an appearance in court.
Apart from Mondays, the group also declared sit-at-home any day Kanu is to appear in court.
