The sit-at-home order proposed by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, failed on Saturday after residents of Ebonyi State shunned the directive.
It was gathered that hotels, motor parks, markets and other business in the state opened for business.
Other means of transportation were also operational despite the directives of the IPOB leader.
It was reported that security agencies patrol some major roads in the city on Saturday.
Naija News had earlier reported that Kanu on Thursday warned people of the Southeast against flouting the May 29 sit-at-home order.
However, there is still panic in the state owing to rumour that the exercise was shifted to hold on Monday.
IPOB had said: “We, the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), ably led by the prophet of our time, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, wish to announce once again, that this year’s annual Biafra Remembrance Day and candlelight procession will take place on Sunday night 30th of May, while a sit-at-home and total lockdown takes place on Monday, 31st May, 2021, and not May 30th as earlier announced.”
