IPOB Sit at Home Protest: Police reacts, Launches “Show of Force”

Below is a statement signed by the Commissioner of Police, Imo state, Andre Enwerem on the recent Sit-at-home Order by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB;

The attention of the Imo State Police Command has been drawn to the statements, claims, publications, and posts circulating in the social media by groups who claim to be representing Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), directing law-abiding citizens and innocent Nigerians to sit at home on the 14th of September, 2018. These publications are not only inciting but represent an unpatriotic and mischievous propaganda against the sovereignty of the Nigerian state.

In consideration of these unfolding circumstances, the Commissioner of Police, Imo State, CP Dasuki Galadanchi in conjunction with Heads of other Security agencies in the state had a meeting with Civil Society Groups, Managers of Financial Institutions and other stakeholders and wish to assure all citizens and residents of the state that we have the capacity and capability to protect them.

Members of the public are advised to go about their lawful business and not to fall prey to the propaganda and directives of individual or group of persons whose activities remain largely proscribed.

Parents/guardians are advised to restrain their children and wards from engaging in violent conduct and other acts likely to bring them in confrontation with the law.

In view of this, security agencies have begun a show of force and other simulation exercise within the metropolis aimed at sensitizing the public, building their confidence and assuring them that they will be protected at all times.
