May 30 Sit-At-Home: We Will Deal Decisively With Biafra Groups - Police; IPOB Reacts


The Nigerian Police Force, NPF, Anambra State Command has vowed to deal decisively with any individual or groups, under any guise, who disrupts public peace.”

The warning comes following the May 30 sit-at-home order by the members of Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB.

However, the police has insisted that IPOB, as a proscribed organisation, lacked the legitimacy to declare a protest order, but IPOB said police can’t stop it from carrying out its religious obligation to Biafra’s fallen heroes.

Commissioner of Police, Anambra State, Mr. Garba Umar, who described the group as misguided elements and urged the people in the state to disregard the order and go about their lawful normal businesses, assured that the State Police Command is on top of the situation.

“The command, with other security agencies, will not hesitate to deal decisively with any individual or groups, under any guise, who disrupts public peace.”

Reacting over the statement, IPOB, through a press release by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said there is no going back on the May 30 sit-at-home order, describing it is as “oblation” that would take place in no fewer than 100 countries of the world.
