Police Warns Biafra/IPOB Members: You Can’t Protest

The Anambra and Rivers states commands of the Nigeria Police Force have warned the Indigenous People of Biafra and other Biafra groups against carrying out planned protest scheduled for today.

The IPOB had declared Friday a sit-at-home day. It called for the closure of markets, schools, banks and other institutions in the South-East and South-South geo-political zones.

Police have described the protest as illegal.

The group which said it would use the day to protest the continued detention of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, by Government added that there would be restriction of movement during the protest.

Police has warned those who planned such protest to retrace their steps to avoid ugly consequences.

A statement released on Thursday by Anambra State Police Command reads:
“The attention of the Anambra State Police Command has been drawn to the information that some misguided elements have perfected plans to cause public disorder and conduct themselves in a manner that is likely to cause breach of the peace.

“The command is using this medium to warn such elements to retrace their steps and desist from embarking on any acts of criminality.

“In the same vein, parents are advised to warn their children/wards from being used for acts of illegality.”

Same warning was also dished out by Rivers State police command against the Biafra/IPOB group.
