The Inspector-General of Police, Alkali Baba, has said because the Indigenous People of Biafra is proscribed, nobody is expected to be a member of that group.
He assure residents that the government is working hard to end the issue of bandity and kidnapping ravaging the country.
“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 north-east,” 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 organisation 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.”
