In a statement, which CP Frank Mba, Force Public Relations Officer, issued on his behalf, the IGP directed the Commissioner of Police in Imo to carry out holistic investigations into the incident with a view to fishing-out the perpetrators and bringing them to justice.

Police Reinforce Squads, Blames IPOB for Attacks on Security Formations in Imo State

• IGP Directs CP Imo and the Special Investigation Team to Fish-Out and Bring Perpetrators to Book

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, NPM, mni has ordered the immediate deployment of additional units of Police Mobile Force (PMF) and other Police Tactical Squads to Imo State to strengthen security in the State and prevent further attacks on security formations or any other critical national infrastructure in the State.

The IGP gave the directives following the attack on security operatives and formations including the Imo State Police Command Headquarters and the Headquarters of the Nigerian Correctional Services (NCS) in Owerri in the early hours of today, Monday, 5th April, 2021.

Preliminary investigations have revealed that the attackers, who came in their numbers with sophisticated weapons such as General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMGs), Sub-Machine Guns (SMGs), AK49 rifles, Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs), Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), are members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)/Eastern Security Network (ESN).

The attempt by the attackers to gain access to the Police armoury at the Headquarters was totally and appropriately resisted by Police operatives on duty who repelled the attackers and prevented them from breaking-in and looting the armoury.

The armoury is thus intact! Similarly, the police suffered no human casualty, apart from a police Constable who sustained a minor bullet wound on his shoulder.

Meanwhile, one of the operational vehicles of the attackers has been recovered by the Police and is currently being subjected to forensic scrutiny and investigations.

The IGP, who condemned the attack on the security outfits, has further directed the Commissioner of Police, Imo State Command and a new Special Investigation Team (specifically set up to deal with cases of incessant attacks on security formation/operatives in the region), to carry out holistic investigations into the incident with a view to fishing-out the perpetrators and bringing them to justice. The CP is to harness the security reinforcement squads and other operational assets at his disposal to take the battle to the door-steps of the attackers and prevent any further attack anywhere within the State and its environs.

The IGP, who described the deliberate and criminal attack on security operatives as an attack on the soul of our nation, has enjoined leaders in Imo State, the South-East and other parts of the country to speak out against the unfolding violence and criminality. The IGP calls on citizens to avail the Police and other security agencies with useful information that can assist in identifying and arresting the criminals. He vowed that the perpetrators will be brought to book, noting that the Force is doing all within its powers to curb the activities of unscrupulous elements hell-bent on threatening the unity, safety, security and socio-ecomomic wellbeing of Nigerians.

Re: IGP Asks Imo CP To Fish Out IPOB Members Behind Imo Attack by Esseite: 4:43am On Apr 06
I dont know but I see too many leaks...

- A whole Police HQ very close to the Govt house was attacked in a city, without any intelligence leak to prevent or alert such?..
- Not a single CCTV camera captured anything even at prison gates?..
- Armoury safe via heavy repelling by the police, yet over 1500 prisoners escaped without even a single casualty (even unaimed shots should get one or two)?..
- Videos show Criminals majestically strolling out while chanting success songs for an attack supposed to be repelled by the police..

Maybe it's just me overanalyzing though...

Pele oo, Fisherman...how many of the blood sucking demons called Fulani herdsmen have you COWED out?

When it comes to issues with Southern Nigeria, culprits are very easy to identify and pursued with vigour...but when it repeatedly happens in the North, they are termed Bandits or Gunmen...who are 'to be' investigated and arrested...Ndi ara

They are calling these people thieves yet they are playing with a stolen baby goat...they are accusing this govt of playing the sectionalism card, yet they are making it so obvious...is it that top decision makers in this administration are plain stupid or just calling our bluff?

A case of giving a dog a bad name in order to have the moral standing to hang him...it is the modus operandi of this administration.

You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. Continue, the chickens will soon come home to roost.

Fighting so many battles in so many fronts with limited resources and manpower...very ill-advised administration

I told somebody yesterday they will tag this IPOB and unleash terror in South East

IPOB already issued a statement that they are not behind the attacks. I think they are capitalising on some statements credited to MNK to perpetuate this evil.

Ever since this incident took place, I have been wondering how this kind of attack even took place around that area without much resistance. Anybody that is familiar with that road will understand what am talking about. That place is well fortified by security agencies as it is close to Douglas House ( Imo state government house).

If the police cannot protect the Police headquarters, then how are they going to protect the masses.

One thing that really baffles me about these guys is the way they employ denial tactics.
In 1966, Igbo politicians in connivance with their military officers staged a coup which was celebrated by Igbo's at time. Today, they are denying it wasn't them.
Aguyi Ironsi came with his unifying decree which weakened the regional structures. Today, they trying to deny it.

Ipob and their supporters have been bragging about having weapons, showing us clips of gun battles and all. Now they are attacking law enforcement agencies and their supporters say ipob and ESN are unarmed and peaceful and we should call the attackers unknown gunmen.

When the military kills any of the 'unknown gunmen' they will start crying and saying those are innocent people killed by the army, for how can the army kill unknown people.
They enjoy tagging every crime involving guns to Fulani's, they litter nairaland with threads portraying negativity about other tribes, but when anyone says something about them, they rush to create a topic titled igbophobia and all lie down there to wail on how they are being hated.

As for Kanu, he should stop showing himself as a made in China Shekau. If your people do something, take responsibility for it, but no, he is scared of extradition.

However, whether known or unknown gunmen, they will deal with them just like boko haram are being dealt with.
