Despite the fact that the sit-at-home order in the South East is lifted every Monday, locals remain terrified to leave their houses.
Many streets in key parts of the South East are still desolate today, August 30.
There have also been tales of masquerades parading the streets in an attempt to discourage people from going about their daily lives.
They have reportedly threatened to flog anyone who is caught going out.
Despite the suspension, masquerades appear in Nsukka to execute the sit-at-home directive.
The sit-at-home order was issued in response to IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu’s detention. It was later lifted, however residents claim that this is merely in words because many are afraid of being harmed if they open their businesses or offices.
