JUST IN: IGP orders Police Officers to arrest, deal with IPOB members
Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police (IGP), Alkali Baba Usman has charged Police officers to arrest and deal with any member of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Mr. Usman made the charge on Monday in Asaba during a visit to the Delta state police command.
He said: “It is expected that whatever affect Anambra State may likely affect, especially Asaba. It is just the bridge that is separating the towns.
“There are always spill over of agitations and demonstrations from Onitsha to Asaba.
“That is why you need to get prepared to deal with any crime or criminality to ensure that those trouble makers are brought to book.”
“You (officers) need to brace up to the IPOB challenge because it is a proscribed organisation, and treat them as such.”
Commending officers and men of the command for their successes, Usman who was Commissioner of Police in the state between 2014 and 2016, urged them to improve on their crime fighting efforts.
