Over 500 police mobile force men have being deployed to Aba by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris to checkmate members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Lakanu said the IG directed that peace should be restored to Abia, hence the deployment of the mobile officer.

He said: “You can see that we have emplaced security and that the whole place is quiet and our men are on patrol.

“For now we are still monitoring. So, for now there is no problem. We are on top of the situation. We are working in tandem with other agencies and they are cooperating with us.”

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that the Nigerian military in a statement by Major General, John Enenche, Director Defence Information, declared IPOB a terrorist organisation.

The DHQ in a statement signed by the director of defence information said after due professional development and recent developments and activities of the group, it has become important to notify the public that IPOB and its members are not as non-violent as they claim.

Eneche also warned parents and unsuspecting residents of the southeast and the general public to advice their wards against joining the group.
