By Lucky Uwakina (AGENEDAWATCHDOG) – Following the violence that marred the #EndSARS protests, which resulted in the attack and looting of some Police Stations in Oyigbo LGA, the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, CP Joseph Mukan has declared war on Biafra Zionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and criminal elements in the area.
The CP Mukan made the announcement during a meeting with DPOs and the Heads of Tactical Units in the Command, where he gave the senior police officers the go-ahead to deploy both Intelligence and Patrols across the Command within the next 48hrs, to arrest the cumprits responsible for the attacks and recover looted items.
On the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, the CP said:
”Again the CP for the umpteenth time wishes to reiterate emphatically that Rivers State is not an IPOB State and will deal decisively with any group that carries out activities under that guise or any guise whatsoever.
“IPOB has been outlawed by both the Federal and State Governments and to that extent is non-existent anywhere else, including Rivers State.
“Hence, Parents and Guardians should warn their Children/Wards to be law-abiding or else bear the full weight of the law,” Spokesman of the Command, SP Nnamdi Omoni said a statement.
