ENUGU State Police Command
has warned that it would not like
the disruption of peace in any way
in the state in the form of violent
protest.
The warning is coming
on the heels of the planned
commemoration of Biafra
declaration anniversary which
Biafra Independent Movement,
BIM, scheduled for May 22 and
the planned Biafra anniversary to
hold on May 30 by the Indigenous
People of Biafra, IPOB, to
remember Biafra fallen heroes.
However, a release from the state
Police Public Relations Officer,
Ebere Amaraizu, said the state
command of the Nigeria Police
had got information of alleged
plan for violent protest by a group.
He said the force “wishes to
inform members of the public
particularly good people of the
state that its attention has been
drawn to the alleged plan by some
groups masquerading under the
aegis of Biafran Independence
Movement, BIM, amongst others,
to embark on violent protest
within the state and its environs
which is capable of disturbing the
already existing peace in the state
as hoodlums may as well cash in
on that to wreck havoc on the law
abiding citizens of the state.
“In view of the above, the
command advises on the need
for members of the public to be
law abiding by shunning any
act capable of bringing them in
conflict with the law as anyone
caught will be made to face the
consequence in accordance with
the relevant sections of the law.
The command advises members of
the public to go about their normal
lawful businesses.”
Meanwhile, no fewer than 41
persons suspected to be members
of the Biafra Independence
Movement, BIM, were nabbed
by security operatives of the
command from various parts of
Enugu metropolis in the morning
of Monday 22/5/15 based on
intelligence information that they
were about to conduct themselves
in a manner likely to cause the
breach of peace. Investigations
into their alleged activities have
begun,” the release said.
