Enforcers of Monday Sit-at-Home Directive Set Fire to Truck Ablaze (News Central TV)

A truck loaded with 600 bags of cement was reportedly set on fire at Beach Junction in Nsukka, Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State, South East Nigeria on Monday allegedly by the Independent Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).

The enforcers of the sit-at-home ordered in the Southeast, were said to attacked the truck conveying bags of cement, and immediately set it ablaze while the driver and his conductor managed to escape.

It was gathered that the attackers waylaid the truck, but the driver and his conductor fled before the hoodlums set it ablaze.

The group staged the Monday sit-at-home protests to call for the release of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is on trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja for alleged terrorism, and a host of other charges leveled against him.

Although they claim to have since suspended the order, however, some hoodlums have continued to enforce the directive, dishing out violence to residents every Monday, and on days when Kanu makes appearances in court for his trial. 

The Enugu State Police Command has yet to release any official statement regarding the development.
