The Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Princess Nkeiruka Nwude, has said that no arrest of members of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has been made in the state.
She said members of the group had been peaceful and going about their normal businesses within the state.
Nwude told the Nation newspaper: “The command had no problem with IPOB members since after the proscription.
“Members of the group had been hiding since the proscription in the state, while the sales of IPOB insignia, flags among others are no longer being displayed at public places.”
However, the group has raised an alarm that the federal government was planning another round of massacre against the members.
This was contained in a statement in a which was sent to reporters by Emma Powerful, Media and Publicity Secretary for IPOB.
According to the statement, “IPOB Intelligence Unit has uncovered elaborate plans by the government to incriminate IPOB members in order to justify their controversial and unpopular proscription of IPOB with the attending laughable tag of terrorist organization against a world recognized peaceful movement.”
“The government has resolved to commence another round of their periodic genocide of innocent civilians across South East and South-South, within the next few weeks under the cover that IPOB is a terrorist organization.”
