Following an alleged threat by unknown gunmen, some schools in Owerri, the Imo state capital were this morning forced to shut down and send their students back home.
Some of the school proprietors said they had to shut down their schools because of a letter that went viral on social media linked to unknown gunmen, warning that there would no longer be movement, and schools will shut down every Monday of the week in Igboland.
A resident in the capital said;
“The various attacks on police stations including the killings of police officers now put fear in the people that Monday’s which usually seen as sit-at-home, could be a dangerous day. That is while you see some streets are almost empty people are just sitting inside their houses. Nobody wants to be killed.”
