IGP returns stolen mace to Senate

Kaduna State Police Command has debunked the news making the round in some quarters that Igbo indigenes living in the state are being attacked and their properties destroyed.

The alleged attacks were said to have come as a reprisal attack following the recent clash between soldiers and members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Abia and Rivers states.

But Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Mr Agyole Abeh, refuted the claim during a joint meeting with Igbo and Yoruba leaders at his office in Kaduna.

He further dismissed inciting pictures and audio messages circulating in the social media on how several Igbos were allegedly killed in the state and their shops destroyed.
