Nigerian Police Says IPOB Burnt 3 Police Stations In Rivers State

The members of Nnamdi Kanu led Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB , have been accused of being the hoodlums who burnt three Police Stations in Rivers State. 

NAIJA NEWS NG gathered that 500 hoodlums alleged to be members of IPOB in Rivers State became more aggravated after Governor Nyesom Wike imposed a 24 hours curfew on the state. They invaded Oyibo Area Command and Afam Police Stations and set them on fire.

The Police alleged that IPOB members killed 2 police officers in cold blood, destroyed about fifteen vehicles including an Armored Personnel Carrier (APC).

In a statement signed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Nnamdi Omoni, the command said, “In the wake of the attack, two Police Officers were killed and some arms and ammunition carted away by the hoodlums.

“Another attack was carried out at the Mile one Police Station where the same suspected IPOB members who operated under the guise of #ENDSARS protests made frantic attempt at burning the Mile One Police Station and the office of Eagle Crack Squad.

“Though the command was able to restore calm, there are still pockets of threats from their remnants at the fringe communities in Oyigbo Local Government Area.”

But the attacks continued Thursday with the destruction of an ICT Market by rival hoodlums at Rumukwurusi belonging to traders, mostly resident in Oyigbo.

Also, two persons were allegedly shot dead around Isaiah-Eleto, while another three are said to have also been killed around Luciano Bar at Umuebulu all in Oyigbo Local Government Area.

Sporadic shootings were heard at different parts of the local government in the wee hours of Friday.

Neither Governor Wike nor the State Commissioner of Police, CP Joseph Mukan have visited the crisis prone area.
