PANDEMONIUM ensued on Monday, in Imo State, as gunmen suspected to be members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), distrupted academic activities at Comprehensive Secondary School, Nkume, Njaba Local Government Area.
It was learnt that the students were stopped from taking the day’s examination.
The students as gathered, were preparing to sit for English Language in the ongoing Junior Secondary School Examination before the gunmen forcefully dispersed them.
Citizens Compass gathered that both teachers and students fled in different directions as the gunmen shot sporadically into the air.
The gunmen were said to have set ablaze some motorcycles belonging to some of the staff and students.
Although there were no report of casualties, a video of the incident showed the students and staff shouting and running for their lives.
IPOB had declared Monday as sit-at-home to drum support for the release of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is facing some charges before an Abuja High Court.
This week, the sit-at-home is expected to continue on Tuesday as Kanu is expected to make an appearance in court.
Apart from Mondays, the group also declared sit-at-home any day Kanu is to appear in court.
Meanwhile, the sit-at-home order was said to be disregarded in some parts of the state.
