The Anambra State police command has urged residents to disregard an order by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) asking people not to come out for any business activities on 30 May, 2019.
The Police added that IPOB remained proscribed and all its activities are illegal.
Concise News had reported that a coalition of pro-Biafran groups on Monday said that the proposed Biafra anniversary celebration of May 30th in the Country was sacrosanct.
“Information at the disposal of the Anambra State Police Command has revealed that the outlawed group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are perfecting plans through public announcement and threats in Nnewi and other parts of the State in order to enforce a “SIT AT HOME ORDER” warning people to stay at home and not to come out for any business activities on the 30/5/2019,” spokesman for the police, Haruna Mohammed, said.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is still a proscribed organisation hence all its activities remains illegal.”
Mohammed added that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mustapha Dandaura, “enjoined all “Ndi Anambra” to disregard alleged calls by any group urging them to sit at home on the 30/5/2019 and go about their lawful businesses.”
