The Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu has ordered operatives to be harsh and hard-hearted against members of the proscribed Independent People of Biafra (IPOB). This development is coming after gunmen stormed a Correctional Facility in Owerri, Imo State on Monday freeing over 1000 inmates. Other unidentified gunmen also attacked the State Criminal Investigation Department of the police headquarters and freed suspects in some cells. The IGP accused security operatives of IPOB and Eastern Security Network, ESN, for the attack. While visiting the burnt Imo Police Command headquarters and Owerri Correctional Facility on Tuesday, Adamu directed police officers to use their weapons and crush the security operatives.
