The Army, Police and other security Agencies in Imo state, yesterday warned members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) against disrupting public peace over the September 14 sit-at-home order.
The state Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, Brigade Commander, 34 Artillery Brigade, Obinze, Brigadier General H.I Bature, and other Heads of Security Agencies, said they were ready to confront IPOB and other separatist groups.
Describing the secessionists as “miscreants”, the CP said the proposed sit-at-home order was not in tandem with the laws of the land.
He therefore advised the members of the public to ignore the call for the sit-at-home and go about their lawful businesses without fear of any attack.
Galadanchi, informed that the security Agencies would from today begin what he called “operation show of force” across the state to sensitize the people on the need to ignore the IPOB order.
The CP said that during the joint operation show of force, all the security Agencies would exchange ideas, share intelligence in order to prevent IPOB members from fermenting troubles.
