The commissioner of Police in Abia state, Anthony Michael Ogbizi has maintained that the police did nothing wrong while raiding the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
He also stated that they will continue to raid the house as long as they keep getting intelligence reports that arms are being stockpiled there.
Speaking to newsmen, Ogbizi said that all items recovered there were itemised and marked as exhibits and that nothing was stolen during the joint military/police operation there.
He also added that a technician for the group has been arrested and that many dangerous weapons were recovered on the premises.
“We even noticed a Biafran flag mounted on top of a telecommunication mast, very close there. We are going to the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) through which we are going to sanction all telecommunication operators whose mast are being used to hoist such flags.” he said.
According to Ogbizi, communication between IPOB members is also being monitored. “We are going to go after all those who are found culpable, they should stop hiding and giving the public false information.” he stated.
He said that the joint operation with the military is necessary as this could help curb their dangerous activities in the state.
