Solomon Arase, the Inspector General of Police has given a stern warning to members of the Indigenous People of Biafra who have vowed ‘to carry guns in self defence’.
In a statement today, Arase said they would be breaching the law to have in their possession or under their control any prohibited firearms without licence or permit.
And he has ordered all Zonal AIGs and State Commands CPs to strictly enforce the laws against the use of illegal firearms across the length and breadth of the country.
“The IGP warns that anybody who dares security agencies in the discharge of their constitutional responsibilities, and make life difficult for law abiding citizens, will face dare consequences of their actions”, said Force PRO Olabisi Kolawole, on behalf of the IGP.
“The IGP cautions the IPOB members to follow appropriate avenues in ventilating their grievances as anybody who steps out of bounds will be decisively dealt with”, Kolawole added.
