Police Warns IPOB Against Planned Protest
The Anambra States Police Command have warned the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, against embarking on its planned protest slated for today.
IPOB had earlier disclosed that it would carry out a worldwide rally to protest the continuous incarceration of Kanu by the Federal Government on September 23.
In a statement titled: “Protest Attempt to Cause Breach of Peace,” signed by its Public Relations Officer, Nkeiruka Nwode, the Command warned IPOB members to retrace their steps or face the consequences, stressing that the protest is illegal.
The pro-Biafra group had also ordered residents of the South East geo-political zone to sit-at-home today while markets, schools, banks and other institutions in the region must stay closed as a mark of solidarity for Kanu.
The Command advised parents to warn their children and wards against being used for the protest.
The statement in part, “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.”
