IGP visits Delta, orders personnel to deal with IPOB

IGP Usman Baba

Inspector-general of police (IGP) Usman Baba on Monday paid a visit to Delta State Police Command headquarters in Asaba where he charged officers to take the fight to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Mr Baba said the police must be decisive in dealing with the “proscribed organisation” as IPOB demonstrators from Onitsha spill into Asaba.

“If you are able to work in Delta, you can work in any part of Nigeria. That’s why we are creating more areas command, divisions to bring police nearer to the people,” the police boss said.

“You are trying your best but your best is not good enough. Anything that happen in Anambra State will affect Delta State especially the Asaba.

“That is why you must prepare to deal with any criminal especially IPOB group. There are spills over agitation or demonstration from Onitsha to Asaba.

“Brace up to IPOB challenge because it is a proscribed organisation and treat them as such. It is unfortunate that #EndSARS started from Delta State.”

Baba assured the Command that bullet-proof vests, teargas canisters, helmets and others would be provided before Anambra governorship election in November.
