Police warn biafran group against planned protest

The Nigeria Police Force has warned the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) against carrying out its planned protest across some South Eastern states.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Force spokesperson, Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, on Friday in Abuja.

The statement said that the law prohibiting the unlawful possession of firearms was still in-force.

It said that any attempt by the group to unleash mayhem on innocent and law abiding Nigerians would be met with stiff resistance.

It further warned that the culprits would be brought to justice in line with extant laws.

The statement assured citizens of states in the South-East of adequate police protection as appropriate deployment has been put in place to deal with the culprits.
