The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Alkali Baba Usman, has urged officers of the Delta State Police Command to treat members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB as proscribed organization.
Usman gave the charge while addressing officers of the Command during a one-day working visit on Monday.
He said: “It is expected that whatever affects Anambra State may likely affect, especially Asaba. It is just the bridge that is separating the towns.
“There are always spillovers of agitations and demonstrations from Onitsha to Asaba.
“That is why you need to get prepared to deal with any crime or criminality to ensure that those trouble makers are brought to book.
“You (officers) need to brace up to the IPOB challenge because it is a proscribed organisation and treat them as such.”
