Biafra: Nobody should belong to IPOB, we'll deal with them - IGP Alkali Baba warns

The Inspector-General of Police, Alkali Baba, has said that nobody is expected to be a member of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB because the organization remains proscribed.

He said that the government was working towards addressing the issue of kidnapping, armed robbery, banditry, and cultism in the north-central, north-west, and south-west.

The new police boss spoke in Abuja after he was confirmed by the police council on Friday.

“There are peculiarities, like I said before, in the south-east and south-south, issue of the secessionist agenda championed by IPOB. I also talked about terrorism and religious bigotry in the northeast,” the new IGP said.

“In collaboration with other security agencies, we try to checkmate other forms of lawlessness, criminality, and unlawful agitation.

“What is seriously worrisome in the south-east, but it is gradually being checked and results are positive as regards the attacks and killings of security agents and assets belonging to the federal government.

“Our ability to checkmate this lawlessness has improved and we are getting closer to something positive.

“The issue is IPOB is a proscribed organization and we expect nobody to belong to the IPOB.

“It’s just like me differentiating between an armed robber and a thug. It’s the level of crime that matters. There is no way we can say this is IPOB or a thug, it all depends on the level of crime.”
