The Abia state police command has threatened to disrupt Nnamdi Kanu parents’ burial if the Indigenous people of Biafra does not stay clear of the place.
The commissioner of police, Mr Ene Okon said the police would not allow IPOB to participate in the burial.
IPOB earlier, had told security agencies to have absolutely nothing to do with the burial of their leader’s parents and added that they should focus on real security issues in the country. They (IPOB) maintained that they are not coming for war but to pay their last tribute to the parents of their leader.
The CP made it clear to the traditional prime minister of Afaraukwu, Kanu’s hometown, that the burial would not hold if IPOB members attended. He warned that they should tell IPOB not to go near the area let alone participating in the burial. In his statement, the commissioner of police said
“If the community fails to adhere to the police warning, the burial will not go on smoothly because we are going to scatter the place. IPOB is proscibed by the Federal government. We will not tolerate any flag, IPOB insignia, or the group members disguising as Jewish or Zionist church members during the burial.”
