The Abia State Police Command has arrested over 40 members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Aba area of the state.

The State Commissioner of Police, Anthony Ogbizi described the group as terrorist and occultic members that were hiding under religion.

“Only IPOB is declared as a terrorist group in the South East, especially in Umuahia, Abia State. This is a cult group, hiding under the guise of religion.”

The police boss believes that extra care needed to be taken on security agents so as not to arrest innocent citizens seen to be law abiding.

He added, “We are careful so that we do not arrest an innocent person.  Terrorists are not guerrilla fighters or military who wear a uniform. They are faceless people moving with others as law abiding citizens.

“The police is on the ground. We have the capacity to deal with any situation and where the need is, we have the backing of our sister agencies. No group or individual should take the law into their hands. Yes, IPOB has been making their threats and are affecting it now.

“It is deviance to the law; they cannot take the law into their own hands. Last week, under the guise of worshipping, they marched into this place (police headquarters). There was a confrontation in which nine were arrested.”

IPOB members dressed in military camouflage comprise men and women with Biafra flags as they attempt to assemble in strategic locations within the city with a view to carrying out a mass protest.

But the police is ever ready to put the situation under control as the CP has given the assurances that no group would be allowed to destabilise the state.

He, however, warned that the police would not relent in dealing with anyone culpable for causing breakdown of law and order.

The police chief explained that the bomb disposal unit of the police is still investigating the source of explosives in Aba which injured people and called on Abians to be vigilant and volunteer information on happening within their vicinity. (Channels TV)
