Anambra State Police Command has revealed that it has taken steps to ban the activities of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) in the State.
This was made known by the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Garba Umar, in Awka.
Umar said that anyone caught involved in the activites of the proscribed group would be arrested and prosecuted.
He explained terrorism to be the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce the Government or civilian population, in order to destabilise the fundamental political, economic or constitutional structure of a country.
“Therefore, I enjoin the general public to know that participating in the activities of this group is illegal, and would amount to treasonable felony,” the Police boss said.
He then urged the people of Anambra to provide useful information to the Police to help arrest fleeing members of the group, urging parents and guardians to warn their children to stay away from the group.
