The Anambra State police command has announced to the public that they should disregard the sit at home order made by the Indigenous People of Biafra in the state.
The announcement was made by the police on Wednesday, saying IPOB is an illegal group and should be treated as such.
The spokesman of the command, Haruna Mohammed said “Information at the disposal of the Anambra State Police Command has revealed that the outlawed group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are perfecting plans through public announcement and threats in Nnewi and other parts of the State in order to enforce a “SIT AT HOME ORDER” warning people to stay at home and not to come out for any business activities on the 30/5/2019.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is still a proscribed organisation hence all its activities remains illegal,”
He further added that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mustapha Dandaura “enjoined all “Ndi Anambra” to disregard alleged calls by any group urging them to sit at home on the 30/5/2019 and go about their lawful businesses.”
The commissioner of police said adequate security measures are already in place to forestall any sort of breakdown of law and order in the state.
“Finally, 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,” he warned.
