"We Won't Allow Sept 14 Strike Order By IPOB" - Police Dares Biafrans



Security operatives yesterday warned they will not tolerate the September 14, planned sit-at-home ordered by the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB).

The police urged Nigerians to ignore the order and go about their normal businesses without fear of any molestation.

This came as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has cited discovery of more bodies of victims of Operation Python Dance 2, killed last year by the Nigerian Army in mass graves in Abia State.

IPOB said the reason for the calling of general strike on September 14, is to honour victims of Operation Python Dance 2.

The group explained that “at a time when we are still burying those Operation Python Dance 2 killed and dumped in mass graves across Biafraland in September 2017, here we are today with Nigeria military once again poised to invade the South East, to slaughter the weak and innocent in their annual genocidal ritual in the name of yet another Operation Python Dance 3.”

Addressing reporters after a closed –door meeting of high powered security operatives that included the Army, Police, Civil Defense, Immigration, Department of State Services, DSS, among others at the police headquarters in Awka, the Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Garba Umar described IPOB as an illegal organisation and therefore had no right to give order to anybody.

He said: “IPOB is an illegal organization. We are therefore appealing to members of the public that on no account should they be intimidated or harassed into succumbing to the threat of IPOB.

“They plan to embark on sit-at-home on September 14, 2018, but the security agencies are ready for any eventuality.

“The issue of calling for a referendum on the 8th of this month or thereabout and the September 14 sit –at- home order by IPOB will not be tolerated.

“We urge members of the public to go about their lawful businesses as they will be adequately protected.
