The Inspector General of Police(IGP), Ibrahim Idris, has stormed Umuahia, the Abia State Capital, to monitor activities of the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), in the state.
The IGP, who went to the God’s Own State in company of top police officers, is expected to visit Aba, where a police station was razed down by suspected IPOB members.
There were indications that the police chief might declare the leader of the IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, wanted after a Federal High Court, in Abuja, on Wednesday, gave legal backing to the Executive Order of the Federal Government proscribing the IPOB and its activities.
While in the state, the IGP is expected to hold series of meetings with police personnel on general security, discuss welfare of personnel and the way forward in tackling activities of criminals which has reached an alarm stage in the past days.
Top police sources told Daily Sun that following the court prosecution of IPOB, on Wednesday, in Abuja, the police may declare the IPOB leader wanted and commence the process of his arrest.
