Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, has directed the Assistant Inspectors General of Police and the Commissioners of Police in the South-East and South-South geopolitical zones of the country to immediately disarm members of the Independent People of Biafra (IPOB) found to be operating with firearms.

This, according to Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole, followed “the manifestation of the disposition of the armed activists to undertake premeditated attacks on Police officers.”

“The IGP noted that the targeted attacks on Police personnel, who have been performing their statutory functions in the most professional and civil manner since the latest resurgence disorder, portrays the IPOB activists who are orchestrating the insurrection as having crossed the threshold in their misguided attempt to test the common will of the nation,” the Force PRO said in a statement issued in Abuja.

She said that “IGP Arase, while condemning the killing by members of IPOB, also directed the arrest of any member of the group found in possession of firearm and bring him/her to deserved justice, while all IPOB activists arrested in connection with the killing of the Policemen should be charged to court for murder.”

The statement assured that “the Nigeria Police Force will continue to diligently work towards eliminating any threat to internal security and assures Nigerians of its commitment to their safety and security.”
