Biafra Day: Police Beg Imo Residents to Disregard IPOB’s Sit-at-Home Order

Residents of Imo state have been urged to ignore sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to commemorate Biafran Day and honour the fallen heroes who died fighting for the actualization of Biafran State.
The call was made by the Commissioner of Police Imo State Command, CP Aboki Danjuma.
He urged the citizens of the state to disregard the three-day sit-at-home order.
The call was made via a press statement by the Public Relations Officer of the Command, ASP Henry Okoye, who informed that the Police Commissioner has urged citizens of the state to disregard the order and go about their lawful businesses without any fear of attack.
The police spokesman further stated that IPOB and its armed affiliate, the Eastern Security Network (ESN), are making an empty threat as the command has positioned its men and officers at various strategic positions in readiness to respond to any breakdown of law and order.
“Security operatives drawn from the Police, Military, Civil Defense, Road Safety, Immigration, and Fire Service have been massively deployed to embark on confidence-building patrols and Operation Show of Force across the 27 LGAs of the state to ensure public safety.
“The Command, therefore, is using this medium to warn anybody intending to destabilize the improved peace and security in the state by attempting to enforce the illegal sit-at-home order to better have a rethink as anyone caught in the act will be made to face the full wrath of the law.”
He enjoined the people of the state to be security conscious and swiftly report any suspicious person seen or clandestine activity observed within their vicinity to the nearest police station or via the command’s emergency lines, 08034773600 or 08098880197.
