Police arrest, parade 29 IPOB, ESN members allegedly planning to attack Imo Residents

The Police in Imo State on Sunday paraded 29 suspected members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) reportedly planing to attack the State ahead of the Sit-at-home order on Monday.

The State Commissioner of Police, CP, Abutu Yaro, said the command was able to gather the information on their activities and they were arrested.

The Commissioner who stated this while briefing journalists at the Command headquarters, Owerri , said, “We got information that they have concluded their plans to launch an attack on the State as a way of enforcing their sit-at-home order and we moved our men to action and unfortunate for them, all of them were captured in their different camps of ESN, in the State. Also, arrested were some women who offer them catering services.”

His words,” I am glad to report that Imo has remained largely peaceful. We have security measures to ensure everything is secured.

We are not unaware that there are some people bent on trying to destroy the state.

“However, a lot of mileage has been scored and Imo still remains a leading light. We are not relenting. We must always be ahead of them.

However, a masked suspect who said he has repented and would never join the ESN in their activities, was also paraded.

Parading the suspect, he said that he would work with the police to fish out other members.
