Sit-At-Home: Imo Government Shuts Banks, Customers Stranded by oshozondii: 11:38am On Sep 07
Hundreds of bank customers were left stranded on Tuesday as the officials of the Imo State Government shut all the banks on Bank Road in Owerri, the state capital.

Our correspondent who visited the area around 9am saw hundreds of banks customers waiting at various banks.

Some of the banks that were sealed by the state government were Access, Polaris, First Bank, Eco Bank, and United Bank for Africa.

Our correspondent saw customised ribbons the state government officials used in sealing the various banks as early as 7 am.

Some of the staff of the banks told our correspondent that the operatives of Owerri Capital Development Authority sealed the banks.

The PUNCH gathered that the banks sealed were those that failed to open on Monday, a day states in South East sit-at-home in protest of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra who is being tried at the Federal High court in Abuja by the Federal Government.

However, some government officials said that the banks were sealed because of building approval plans.

Both the state commissioner for Information and strategy, Declan Emelumba, and the General Manager of OCDA Innocent Ikapmezie, did not respond to multiple calls put to their telephones by our correspondent.

They had neither return the calls nor reply to text messages as of the time of filing this report.

The Supreme Court administrator of Imo state should stop overreaching himself simply because the terrorist Fulani led federal government is backing him to further destroy Imo state. He won't last on that seat forever

I remember those days the Punch newspaper writes in a very professional and investigative manner.
See how twisted, watery and shallow the report is- almost like a gossip bloggers post. Smh.
That's what bigotry and hatred cause. They left their core signature investigative journalism to dabble into religious and tribal politics because the current President is not from their tribe and religion.
Ordinary Owerri here, The Punch can't send correspondents to find the diverse reasons some folks stayed at home despite the same group insisting that it has called it off and why only few banks closed, who are those bank managers and why did their competitors open yet they closed and did Punch request to see the order?
Punch needs to redeem itself and if the current managers can't do it, please replace them.

why are you complaining? Since you want sit at home, the governor has given you enough time to sit at home. Infact if iam the governor I will declare 2wks sit at home.

Terrorists should never have their way when there is government on ground...

Tot Umahi said it was fear that achieved d compliance. U see bah d SE Governors are d most docile and fearful set of leaders I have ever seen. What Hope Uzodimma just did has ratified d referendum results the IPOB and Biafra agitators were targeting cos he just confirmed d grassroots are with IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu. To d efulefu in Chief Uzodimma you can't stampede d people out of an ideology they believe in by this show of shame. Now you have shown d world that IPOB is on ground with great mass appeal

angry
IPOB said sit at home, Government got angry.

Now the same Government that got angry for sitting at home, now ask more people to sit at home by barring banks.

Is it just me that thinks this government needs reevaluating?
Is this not madness?

Re: Sit-At-Home: Imo Government Shuts Banks, Customers Stranded by KingGBsky(m): 12:48pm On Sep 07
Imo government should be ashamed of themselves. In fact the whole south east government should be. I was in Anambra and Imo few weeks ago. Men the roads are an eyesore. I mean Ibos are industrialists, so it should be showing in their hometown. The area is vast less developed. The whole of eastern Nigeria should be an industrialized hub of Nigeria. Common!
