Police Alert Residents To IPOB Cells Planned For Bayelsa


BEVERLY HILLS, June 03, (THEWILL) – The Bayelsa Police Command has alerted residents to plots by the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (lPOB) to set up cells in some communities in the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Bayelsa State Command, Mike Okoli, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

Okoli said intelligence available to the command indicated that some misguided elements were planning to set up IPOB cells in the state.

He, however, said that police operatives in the state were on their trail and monitoring their activities.

The Commissioner said the command would deal decisively with any person or group of persons attempting to disrupt the prevailing peaceful security situation in the state.

“The Bayelsa State Police Command hereby appeals to the good people of Bayelsa State to go about their lawful and legitimate business as the security agencies are on the ground to ensure that peace and order is maintained in the state,” Okoli added.
