The residents who have businesses in Abuja  trooped out to various locations in what looked like “the ban has been lifted”. 

Commercial motorcyclists,  popularly called Okada and tricyclices (Keke Napep) took advantage of the situation and were observed making  brisk business, while security operatives were helplessly watching.

Food stuffs were moved from one location to another,  but security operatives were stopping vehicular movement heading to Abuja city centre.
