The Imo State Police Command has issued a call to residents to ignore the illegal sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and continue their normal activities without fear of harm or disruption.
The police emphasized that they had previously banned the sit-at-home order and urged people to go about their lawful businesses with confidence.
In a briefing held at the command headquarters in Owerri, Imo State, Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Ahmed Barde, assured the public that adequate security measures had been put in place to prevent any breach of peace. He also warned that anyone found involved in any disruptive activities would face the full consequences of the law.
Addressing misleading reports on social media, the CP clarified that the incident at the Hassan Market Avu was a fire outbreak resulting in property damage, and no loss of life occurred. The police are currently investigating the incident, and the public will be informed of the outcome once the investigation is concluded.
