The atmosphere at Emene, Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State is tensed as security agents tried to control the activities of hoodlums that were attempting to enforce the sit-at-home declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, today.
Leakblast gathered that the hoodlums attacked a bus distributing bread around the old Orie Emene market in the morning hours of Tuesday. While the driver escaped by whiskers, the bus fully loaded with loaves of bread was looted and the bus set ablaze by the miscreants.
“The driver is the owner of the popular Chimex bread in the area,” an eyewitness told Leakblast while narrating what happened.
“They dragged the driver out, looted all the bread he was carrying in his bus and set the bus ablaze.
“Army arrived the scene to restore peace and shot into the air to disperse the hoodlums. There was no casualties from where I was watching what happened,” he said.
Similarly, two tricycle popularly known as Keke were vandalised in the area. While one was set ablaze at Proda junction, the other one was destroyed just before Coal City University.
IPOB had declared a sit-at-home today to commemorate the day security operatives invaded the home of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu at Afara, Umuahia in Abia state.
