Johnkennedy Uzoma, Owerri

There is absolute calmness and quietness, in Owerri, the Imo State capital, on Tuesday, as the Supreme Court begins hearing for the reversal of its earlier judgement of February on the governorship election in the state.

Residents of the state were seen going about their normal businesses without much tension while putting their ears on the ground concerning the outcome of tomorrow’s Supreme Court seating, in Abuja

Apart from a peaceful protest organised by former APC former council chairmen, in Owerri, early in the morning, of Tuesday, which ended without much troubles and tension, Owerri, the state capital, was quiet, and the state remained peaceful.

As it stands now, Owerri, is currently a ghost town because of mass exodus of both PDP members and APC to Abuja.

Governor Hope Uzodinma had been in Abuja since last week indicating a total shut down of government activities in the state.

 Meanwhile the Imo State Police Command has banned all forms of rallies or protests in Owerri forthwith especially as it affects the Supreme Court’s ruling of January 14, 2020.

The command, in a press statement signed by the Police Public Relation Officer, SP Ikoku Godson Orlando, warned parties to remain calm pending the outcome of the review.

He commend all the groups for the peaceful manner they conducted their protests in the past few weeks, but advice all the groups to stop any further protests/rallies, either in support or against the said Supreme Court judgment.

He said the command would not tolerate a protest which could be hijacked and used to cause chaos, anarchy or breach of the public peace.

The command thus advised the public to go about their lawful businesses and assured them of protection of their lives and properties of all and sundry.
