PRESS RELEASE
IMO ATTACK - IGP DEPLOYS SECURITY REINFORCEMENT SQUADS, SETS UP SPECIAL INVESTIGATION TEAM (SIT)

• 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.

Hope the special squad won't be used for shooting practice this time around? Bullet-proof charms can easily give people boldness.

I kuku no support police. My only concern is the security of SouthWest. Others can hack their selves to Oblivion.

Why is the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB) of Nigerian Police not up and doing with its critical responsibilities?

Also, with so much money at its disposal for overt ànd covert operations, why is it difficult for DSS to PROACTIVELY plant undercover personnel to infiltrate suspicious organizations and systems or recruit insider-informants to gather intelligence in order to always STAY ON TOP and AHEAD in nipping inimical acts in the bud.

There is no reason why bandits, armed herders, unknown gunmen should be having a field with their negative impact growing everyday.

DSS and FIB should be actively but subtly OMNIPRESENCE in operations like their peers all over the world.

Hahaha.

As dem dey come na so dem go dey collect.


Ndigbo, let's beware of the mind games of the Fulanis. They have come with this unsolicited advice that we should be against UGM, because Boko haram started same way as them. Well, that is not true!! From the get go, Boko haram has always been a terrorist group. Imagine a group who's doctrine is that western education is evil, what other good thing can come out from them?. And again, the first Boko haram attack was a suicide bomb attack in 1st Oct 2010 thereby killing innocent civilian's.

Contrast BH with UGM, and you'd see that UGM is fighting a just cause for all Ndigbo. I'm not afraid of the sentiments by some well meaning Igbos that there is a tendency of UGM going into armed robbery in the future. Well, if you look at their modus operandi, you'd discover that if they wanted to go into armed robbery they would have gone into it, and nothing anybody can do about it. For a group to sack a whole State CID, is it ordinary police van that will stop them?

My people, let's not get this twisted, what we are seeing is a fulfilment of an age long prophecy, that the Igbos will very soon fight back against the injustices in Nigeria, and if anyone thinks he/she can stop it, best beleive the person is joking with his life.

Before I go, let me use this opportunity to warn the FG to immediately begin the process of dialoguing with Biafra. Just as the menace of UGM, it will seem like joke to say now, that sooner than later bombs will be going off in Abuja. But until then, let the stoopid one Nigerianists continue to assure the FG that it can muscle it's way through.

There was no shooting last night, infact those bullets were not life bullets. The gunmen shot in d air to scare away the police forces and no casualty was recorded last night
The family of the victims should come out and testify

Let us all remember that killing is not done only with the use of weapons, but can also be achieved through posting false information on social media.


Mind what you post on social media or any forum for you may be killing an innocent person.
