SAN FRANCISCO, October 12, (THEWILL) – The Commissioner of Police in Abia, Mr Anthony Ogbizi, has said that lethal weapons, including petrol bombs and one double-barrel gun, were recovered during last Sunday’s raid on the residence of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
Ogbizi said that the petrol bombs were found in buckets and incriminating documents and letters, concerning IPOB’s activities and plans, were also recovered during the raid.
“We recovered many of Biafra’s insignia, a staff of office and some of those items are being analysed,” he said.
The police boss said that the operation also led to the arrest of one suspected member of IPOB adding that the team also discovered the telephone numbers of the group’s zonal coordinators.
Ogbizi said that a Biafran flag was also found hanging on a telecommunications mast in the area.
According to him, the police will ask the Nigeria Communications Commission to sanction any telecommunication company that allowed its mast to be used to host Biafran flags.
He said that the activities of IPOB in the Southeast were “stirring insurrection” and that security agencies would not fold their arms and watch the group foment violence in the country.
