Attack on Obiano: My men nearly shot IPOB members who blocked Obiano – Anambra CP

Attack on Obiano: My men nearly shot IPOB members who blocked Obiano – Anambra CP

Anambra Police Commissioner, Garba Umar, ​said his men almost opened fire on ​members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)​ who blocked Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano​​, on Sunday.

The Biafra agitators ​had confronted Obiano at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Ekwulobia, Anambra State.

It was gathered that the scene was ​charged and restraint ​on the part of the police saved the day.

​The IPOB members in their hundreds chanted ‘no election in Anambra on November 18’.

“The Governor had to be smuggled out by his security details,” an eyewitness said.

​Confirmed the incident, ​CP Garba ​warned​​​​ that the police would no longer tolerate such impunity.

“You press people should report this. We will no longer tolerate this impunity from anybody​”, he told Punch.​

 “Why should they protest to the church? The Church is a place of worship and not a place of protest. It is obvious that they had criminal intention to attack the governor.

“The police had to stop them at the gate. If they had dared my men, it would have been a different story. We can’t watch anybody breach public peace in this state. They should be warned to desist from this impunity.”

IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had declared that the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra will not hold.

But Obiano recently fired back and warned IPOB not to cross the line by attempting to stop a constitutional process.

​T​wo weeks ago, a group of youths, suspected to be members of IPOB, disrupted a church function attended by the governorship candidate of the Progressives Peoples Alliance, Godwin Ezeemo, at Odoekpe, Ogbaru LGA of the state.
