Biafra Sit-At-Home Order! Police Says IPOB Is Looking For Trouble  

Following the dreaded sit-at-home order said to be coming up on May 30, The Anambra State Police Command has warned that those planning to stop people from moving about.

The police command noted that its attention has been drawn to reports that over 2,000 members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) were set to storm the streets and roads of Onitsha in Anambra State for their sit-at-home order on Tuesday, May 30.

The command warned that the agitators would be dealt with, adding that under no circumstance should any person or group stop others from moving about.

SP Haruna Mohammed, Police Public Relations Officer in Anambra, in a statement on Monday, said IPOB was still a proscribed group and that all its activities remained illegal.

He stated that the Commissioner of Police, Garba Baba Umar, has enjoined all the good people of the State “to disregard alleged calls by any group urging them to sit at home on the May 30 and go about their lawful businesses.”

“The CP further assured the Public that adequate security arrangements have been put in place by combined Security forces in the State to proactively nip in the bud any threat emanating from such groups.

“The Command will therefore not hesitate to deal decisively with and in accordance with the law any individual or groups under any guise that will disrupt Public Peace in the State,” the statement added.
