The Ebonyi State Police Command has warned the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra and political parties’ supporters against disruptive acts during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state today Tuesday.
The Commissioner of Police, Titus Lamorde, who gave the warning, assured that the command was well equipped to deal with all forms of security challenges before, during and after the President’s visit as officers of the force had been adequately trained to relate well with the citizens during the visit and advised people to conduct their activities within the confines of the law.
The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra had on Monday warned President Muhammadu Buhari to stay away from the South-East, which it referred to as ‘Biafraland’.
The pro-Biafra group, which gave the warning in a statement by its spokesman, Comrade Emma Powerful, warned that the South-East Governors Forum and the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo are provoking violence by allegedly inviting Buhari to the region.
The President is billed to visit Ebonyi State Today, his first visit to the South-East since he came into office.
