PRESS RELEASE

 

 

  • …Dare security agencies and face the consequences

 

The attention of the Nigeria Police Force has been drawn to a publication credited to the Indigenous People of Biafra ‘to carry guns in self defence’, and the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, fdc, NPM, has sternly warned members of the IPOB to reconsider their stand or face the wrath of the extant laws on bearing of firearms.

 

The IGP warns that anybody who dares security agencies in the discharge of their constitutional responsibilities, and make life difficult for law abiding citizens, will face dare consequences of their actions. He cautions the IPOB members to follow appropriate avenues in ventilating their grievances as anybody who steps out of bounds will be decisively dealt with.

Members of the group should therefore note that it is an offence punishable under the criminal Law of the Federation of Nigeria for a person to have in his possession or under his control any prohibited firearms without licence or permit. The IPOB are advised to be guided in respect of the above as the Police Force is poised to uphold the existing restriction over the use of firearms.

 

Meanwhile, all Zonal AIGs and State Commands CPs have been directed to strictly enforce the laws against the use of illegal firearms across the length and breadth of the country.

He has reassured Nigerians of his commitment to their safety and security.
