Police in Anambra State have declared Ifeanyi Ejiofor, lawyer of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, wanted over the killing of two policemen at his residence in Oraifite on Monday.
The state’s police commissioner, John Abang, in a video clip and a statement by the command’s spokesman, Haruna Mohammed, on Tuesday, urged members of the public with any information of his whereabouts to avail the police or any other security agencies of such information.
“Gentleman, I will like to let Nigerians to know that as we speak, Barrister Ejiofor, an IPOB member and his cohorts have been declared wanted by the command,” Mr Abang said.
“And I will seek the cooperation of law-abiding Nigerians from North, South, East and West, wherever they find this individual, they should report to the nearest police station or any other security agency for possible arrest and prosecution.”
Mr Kanu had accused the police and army of invading his lawyer’s house and killing three IPOB members.
But the police said it received a complaint of abduction, assault occasioning harm and malicious damage to property against Mr Ejiofor, prompting officers to invade his residence.
