Police Arrest 67 IPOB Members In Imo

-

The police in Imo State have arrested 67 members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra.

Parading the suspects at the Command’s headquarters in Owerri on Wednesday, August 12, 2020, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Isaac Akinmoyede, said that the secessionists had allegedly attacked his men and snatched service rifles from them.

He revealed that the suspects had traveled to Ohaji/Egbema LGA to meet a native doctor to prepare charms for them against bullet penetration.

Akinmoyede said that investigation by the Command disclosed that the separatists were allegedly planning to attack security agencies in the state with the aim of snatching service rifles.

The CP said, “On the 9th of August, 2020, at about 06:30hrs, 67 members of the IPOB converged somewhere in Orji, Owerri North LGA, and took off to Egbema.

At about 09:30hrs, operatives of the 34 Field Artillery Brigade, while on duty at Mmahu Egbema checkpoint, intercepted 67 members of the IPOB and called for reinforcement from the Divisional Police Headquarters, Egbema.

“The operatives of the Division swiftly mobilised to the scene and assisted in the evacuation of the suspects to the Divisional Police Headquarters for further action.

It was however revealed that the suspects were on their way to a native doctor to fortify themselves against bullet penetration. It is believed that the group is planning an attack on security agencies with the aim of snatching weapons.”
