Abia State Commissioner of Police, Adeleye Oyebade, has declared the Biafra Security Service (BSS), which the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) formed recently illegal.

The police commissioner warned at a press briefing in Umuahia, the state capital that those behind the security network, which he described as “unlawful and illegal” to retrace their steps.

According to Oyebade the Nigerian constitution recognises only the Nigerian Police, Nigeria Army and the Department of State Service. He said that any other group claiming to be providing security without the backing of the constitution was illegal.

He further warned that the full weight of the law would be brought upon the promoters of the security outfit whom, he noted, were displaying videos of the “illegal” BSS on their social media network.

Oyebade said the police and other security operatives in the state would not fold their hands and watch unscrupulous elements to disrupt the relative peace in the state.

He restated that the police in synergy with sister agencies would make the state safe for business and economic activities. (Sunday Sun)
