Biafra: Nigerian Police to arrest any IPOB member holding rallies or protest
The Nigeria Police Force has said it would arrest and prosecute members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), seen holding rallies and protests again.
Police Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood in an interview with PUNCH, said the police would now take tougher measures against IPOB.
According to Moshood, it has become unlawful for the secessionist group, to assemble for rallies or protests after its proscription.
“If we find IPOB members holding rallies or protests anywhere in the country, the full weight of the law will be brought upon them. The full weight of the law would be applied.
“They have been proscribed by the Federal Government and the court has equally proscribed them. If we see them, they will be arrested,” he said.
