The Ebonyi Police Command on Monday warned the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and supporters of political parties against disruptive acts during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state on Tuesday.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr Titus Lamorde gave the warning during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abakaliki.

He assured that the command was well equipped to deal with all forms of security challenges before, during and after the President’s visit.

According to Lamorde, any individual or group of persons that foment trouble during the period would be severely dealt with, as he advised residents to conduct themselves well.

“I will not disclose the number of personnel we have drafted for security reasons, but I assure citizens that enough personnel have been deployed across the state to ensure a hitch-free visit.

“The President’s visit is a welcome development as the citizens should cooperate with security agencies to make it a successful one,” he said.

He stated that his officers had been adequately trained to relate well with the citizens during the visit and them to conduct their activities within the confines of the law.

“We would not meddle into political issues as a security outfit, but the visit is developmentally-oriented because of the numerous projects the President would inaugurate.

“My officers would not intimidate or harass individuals or groups as the duty of ensuring a hitch-free event is a collective one,” he said.

NAN reports that some proscribed IPOB members have been making uncomplimentary remarks, while the rivalry between members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) had heightened as the visit approaches. (NAN)
