Security Operatives, IPOB Face-off Imminent As Group Dares Army, Police
Thu, 13 Sep 2018

There is an impending showdown between Nigerian security forces and supporters of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) following a sit-at-home order by the group in the South East and South South geopolitical zones. While the police and army authorities have warned against obstruction of normal activities in the regions, the separatist group has vowed that nothing will stop it from going ahead with the protest. In view of the contentious matter, the Ebonyi State Police Command has told inhabitants of the state to go about their normal businesses today without any fear of molestation, assuring them that their security is guaranteed.

The state police commissioner, CP Musa Kimo, gave the directive yesterday following the September 14 sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the disappearance of its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, after soldiers on a military exercise, codenamed Operation Python Dance 2, invaded his country home in Umuahia, Abia State. LEADERSHIP recalls that, one year ago, soldiers invaded the palace of HRH Eze Israel Kanu in Eziama Afaraukwu, Umuahia in search of Kanu, an invasion that reportedly left scores of members of the IPOB and others either wounded or dead. Since the September 14, 2017 incident, the whereabouts of Kanu, his parents, Eze Kanu and his wife, and some of his aides and loyalists have remained unknown, hence the separatist group’s sit-at-home call.

But in an effort to douse any fear of possible harassment amongst Ebonyi residents, CP Kimo called on the management of commercial institutions, the leadership of different markets in the state and the general public not to express any fear while going about their normal businesses as men of the command are battle ready to clampdown on members of the separatist group if they cause any trouble.

Briefing journalists at the state command headquarters in Abakaliki, the commissioner of police said that the sit-at-home protest as proposed was meant to force law abiding members of the public, especially within the South East, not to come out on September 14. He said, “We are aware that IPOB has concluded plans to intimidate, harass and molest law abiding citizens.

I want to assure all responsible law abiding citizens and other people who are here to do their business that cogent security measures are in place to ensure that the people go about their normal businesses.

“I also want to appeal to parents and guardians to warn their children to desist, otherwise if they come out, they will meet their Waterloo.” Kimo also assured residents and traders in the state of his command’s resolve, in partnership with other security agencies and relevant stakeholders, to continue to ensure a safe and secure state.
