Most people in Anambra love the sit at home.... So stop disturbing yourself..... Onitsha love the sit at home, they said is good for their health Businesses gonna paying a full year rent whilst they operate for only 3 months.

There's no more Government presence in South East anymore since the region is being controlled by IPOB. Monday and Tuesday are not enough, We want the whole week Kanu must be free Na by forcE In other words, this publication is to serve as a reminder to the affected public to stay indoors right?
