Pupils and students in some schools in Onitsha and neighboring communities, Anambra State were on Tuesday chased out of their classrooms by hoodlums who claimed they were enforcing “Biafra Day” in the State.

The miscreants were said to have also invaded markets and public places to chase traders and workers away.

There were fears among residents whether to go out for their daily businesses following rumours of shift of Biafra Day celebrated every May 30 which was yesterday’s usual Monday sit-at-home.

While some resolved to stay indoors for fear of being attacked, some of those who stepped out returned home.

Those who spoke at one of the markets said the hoodlums who stormed the market as early as 8.45am, insisted they should close their shops and go home. (Text, except for amended headline: The Nation)
