The Governor of Abia, Okezie Ikpeazu is scheduled to meet President Buhari over the military operation in the state.

This is coming after the Governor announced that the military will pull out of some cities in the state.

Ikpeazu, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Sam Hart, said “With the expected exit of soldiers from the streets, we must warn that we will not tolerate agitators and protesters taking over the streets for any reason at all.

“I will also be meeting the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, President Mohamaudu Buhari, to discuss possible ways of relaxing the Operation Python dance 11 in the state for now.”

“Members and sympathizers of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) should henceforth desist from spreading false rumors capable of throwing our state into disorder. Those spreading such falsehood will be dealt with, according to the Law,” he added.

Reports say soldiers stormed the home of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra on Sunday, September 10, 2017.
