Due to the lockdown order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the Southeast, residents of the Enugu Metropolis were left stranded as they stepped out on Monday to carry out their daily duties.
Traders, workers and students especially those who were supposed to write General Mathematics and Woodwork in the National Examination Council (NECO) Senior School Certificate Examination as well as travelers were the most affected as there were no commercial vehicles to convey them to their various destinations.
According to one of the stranded passengers, she had been standing at Ogui Road, between 7.00am to 8.30 waiting for a commercial vehicle to take her to her workplace in New Haven to no avail.
“My office warned us not to miss work today for any reason. But, look at everyone here wants to go to their business places, but how do they do that without any vehicle conveying them?”
