Well, I connected with Aba and it was a huge success for the stay-at-home protest. I had some dialogue with my in-laws [in Benin] and it was a BIG deal. Everyone stayed at home even beyond the 4PM target! Cool!!!!

The protest was a success, reports reaching me show that the 3 big markets in Onitsha closed, all the markets in Aba and Enugu closed and transporters stayed at home(Aba recorded the heaviest millitary presence, Owerri stayed at home despite Udenwa and police threat, Obigbo stayed home - no market/transport, Port Harcourt was partial although there was no transport from Aba/Obigbo to PH.
Outside Biafraland: Lagos - the famous Alabba International market was closed for business, Ladikpo motor spare parts market closed too, Mushin and other places where Ndigbo trade closed shop.
Kaduna/Jos: Biafrans stayed home.
In all, there were no incidents, except an arrest of a MASSOB security guy at Obigbo and there was info that the youths in Onitsha defied police threat and drove round the town in cars carrying Biafran flags.
You will get mor news as they come.
