‘Police silence on killing of IPOB members suspicious’



The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, yesterday described the silence by Imo State Police Command on the allegations that the police killed five of its members and arrested 15 of them as suspicious.

Counsel to the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, while reacting to the report that Imo police declined to comment on the matter described the silence as “an additional fact.”

Vanguard had called the image maker of the Imo State Police Command, Mr. Orlando Ikeokwu on his take concerning the clash between the IPOB members and Police where some were allegedly killed and scores injured.

Series of text messages were sent to his cell phone between 11:03am to 05:18pm which he did not respond to .
