IPOB Members Killed 2 Policemen In Anambra - Police React (Graphic Photos)

The police in Anambra state has reacted to the killing of officers by suspected members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Some officers attached to the police division in Oraifite Community were set ablaze Monday morning, with their patrol van equally set on fire in the process.

Igbere TV gathered that the ugly incident, which occurred at about 11:30 am, left some officers with various degrees of injuries, with others currently at the hospital.

Reacting in a statement sent to Igbere TV Monday night, the Anambra police command blamed the attack on members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The statement signed by SP Haruna Mohammed, Police Spokesman, said the attack ensued after the officers attempted to arrest one Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, an accused person in the area.

The police, however, said some arrests have been made in connection to the incident, even as it vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Full Statement,

“On the 2/12/2019 at about 11:30 am,there was a formal complaint against One Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor 'm' (a member of the proscribed IPOB) in Oraifite on alleged case of abduction, assault occasioning harm and malicious damage to property.

“Following the report, Police Patrol teams led by the Area Commander, Oraifite ACP Oliver Abbey mobilised and rushed to the scene in order to arrest the suspect who declined Police invitation.

“However, as soon as Police arrived the house, armed men suspected to be IPOB members descended on the Police, set ablaze one Patrol vehicle and attacked them with rifles and machetes. As a result of the attack, two Police officers whose identities are being withheld were killed by the suspected IPOB members while others were inflicted with machete cuts. The injured personnels were rushed to the Hospital for medical attention and are presently receiving treatment.

“Consequently, the Command deployed reinforcements from the State Headquarters comprising of PMF, SARS and Special Anti Cult Units in conjunction with the Army/other Sister agencies who cordoned off the area in order to fish out the culprits,while Joint patrol are still ongoing in the town to prevent further breakdown of law and order.

“Meanwhile,some arrests were made and the Commissioner of Police CP John B.Abang,fdc who is on his way to the scene has vowed to bring perpetrators of this dastardly act to justice.”

Quote:Residents Flee Town Of Ifeanyi Ejiofor In Oraifite After Policemen’s Death 

• ‘We want him over murder of two officers’
• IPOB alleges plot to kill counsel
• Ohanaeze condemns move by security agents
• Petitions Buhari over checkpoints in S’east

A siege allegedly laid to Oraifite in Ekwusigo Local Government of Anambra State by a combined team of soldiers and policemen forced residents to flee the community yesterday.

The desertion of the community came on the heels of declaration of Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer to the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, wanted by the state police command over an alleged killing of Oliver Innoma Abbey, the Oraifite Area Commander and the SARS Commander, Ichi Sector, Patrick Agbazue. The two officers led a police patrol team to the compound of Ejiofor in Oraifite, where the police allegedly shot at three persons and wounded scores of others suspected to belong to IPOB.

It was learnt that the seeming police invasion of the house of the counsel to Kanu, who had three days earlier buried one of his elder brothers, irked some youths in the area who allegedly launched a reprisal attack, which is believed to have resulted in the death of Abbey and Agbazue whose remains were burnt and buried near a village market.

The police and IPOB have given differing accounts of the incident in which not less than 20 houses and shops have been razed.

The Commissioner of Police, John Abang, who had visited the scene and vowed to bring the killers to justice, at a press conference yesterday recalled that his command had last Monday got “a formal complaint against one Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor (a member of the proscribed IPOB) in Oraifite on alleged case of abduction and assault occasioning harm and malicious damage to property.”

Abang, who was represented by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Haruna Mohammed said that following the report, patrol teams led by Abbey mobilised and rushed to the scene in order to arrest the suspect who allegedly declined police invitation.

“However, as soon as police arrived at the house, armed men suspected to be IPOB members descended on the police, set ablaze one patrol vehicle and attacked them with rifles and machetes.

“As a result of the attack, two police officers whose identities are being withheld were killed by the suspected IPOB members while others were inflicted with machete cuts. The injured personnel were rushed to a hospital for medical attention and are presently receiving treatment.

“Consequently, the command deployed reinforcements from the state headquarters who cordoned off the area in order to fish out the culprits, while joint patrols are still ongoing in the town to prevent further breakdown of law and order.”

Another version said the two policemen got killed during a clash between rival masquerade groups in Oraifite, Otu Afor, Otu Nkwor and Otu Eke at the weekend in the heat of Ejiofor’s brother’s burial on Saturday.

A source, who pleaded anonymity, said that one of the rival groups had early on Monday morning, two days after the clash, reported the incident to the police who swung into action to effect arrests.

It was learnt that it was in the course of moving to effect arrests that the police stormed Ejiofor’s compound.

IPOB has denied any involvement in the attack and killing of the two policemen.

The group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, said that the freedom fighters were not in any way responsible for the killing of the security agents, alleging that it was the policemen that killed IPOB members when they visited the house of their leader’s lawyer, Ejiofor, and took away their bodies to conceal the act.

In a statement, IPOB said: “The unprovoked Nigeria police and army invasion of the home of our lawyer, Barrister Ifeanyi Ejiofor, barely four days after the painful burial of his elder brother is proof that those running Nigeria have descended into the abyss of iniquity from which they may never recover.

“Not even during the darkest days of Abacha’s dictatorship did anyone witness such brazen intimidation of a legal counsel or the attempted assassination of a defence counsel in a high-profile case.

“For the police to say there was a criminal complaint against Ejiofor bordering on assault and kidnapping four days after the funeral of his brother is most stupid and laughable. A criminal complaint from who? Who did he kidnap, the body of his dead brother?

“The only reason for this unprovoked criminal invasion with deadly intent is to kill Ejiofor and to stop him from attending the Federal High Court, Abuja next month where he has all but defeated the attorney general in the matter of Federal Government of Nigeria versus IPOB.

“It was the same strategy of ‘invade and kill’ that was deployed at Isiama-Afaraukwu, the home of our leader on 14 September 2017, a month before he was due in court, that was played out in Oraifite.”

The Commissioner of Police, Abang, who disclosed the declaration of Ejiofor wanted at a press conference in Awka yesterday, said it was in connection with the murder of the two police officers on Monday.

Meanwhile, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has condemned the Monday attack and burning down of the residence of the IPOB lawyer at Oraifite.

Ohanaeze President General, Chief Nnia Nwodo, in a statement in Enugu also called for a judicial inquiry into the “case of unprovoked attack on Ejiofor”, saying his only “crime is that he peacefully objects to the maltreatment of his people.”

Nwodo stated that Ndigbo observed that the “spurious claim” by the police that Ejiofor was “involved in a case of abduction, assault occasioning harm and malicious damage to property” holds no water as nobody was mentioned as the victim of the allegations.

“Assuming without conceding that Barrister Ejiofor was culpable on a charge of abduction, the only option in law available to the police is arrest and prosecution under the laws of Nigeria and not deliberate arson and wanton destruction of his family home,” Ohananeze said

Nwodo further argued that even before its wrongful proscription, IPOB had never been a violent group and could not have summoned enough force to attack and kill any policeman to warrant drafting in a reinforcement.

Ohananeze Ndigbo also yesterday raised the alarm over military and police checkpoints in the southeast zone, saying Igbo land was under siege.

In a petition to President Mohammadu Bihari which was copied the Inspector General of Police, the group said the checkpoints were being used to extort the people and cripple movements into the zone.

Nwodo said in the petition which he personally signed: “Evidence available to us indicates an unusual number of military, paramilitary and police checkpoints in all routes leading into and within Igbo land.

“To be precise, our report presents the following gory picture: there are 60 checkpoints between Lagos and Onitsha (a major route for Igbo traders) thus:

Lagos to Ore (24), Ore to Benin (23) and Benin to Onitsha (13). Just in Enugu State alone, the checkpoints are uncountable.

“The interpretation of Igbo is that these checkpoints which in the main concern themselves with extorting numerous Igbo passing through them are mere toll gates.

“The nonchalant attitude of the Federal Government and heads of security agencies give the impression that the erection of these ‘toll gates’ is deliberate, extortionist and intended to subdue the will of the people.

“In some instances, these security agents attend these ‘toll gates’ with POS (Point of Sale) machines which they use to force travellers who have no cash but possess debit cards to transfer cash to their private accounts.

“Gladly, one police officer was reported to have been arrested by the Inspector General in respect of this practice recently. As our people prepare to return home for the Christmas, it has become necessary to bring to your attention to this embarrassing misdemeanor.

“It is hoped that you will use your good offices to order officers responsible for this embarrassment to dismantle these “tollgates”.

Quote:Slain cops: Anambra community bans IPOB members, masqueraders

The Oraifite Community in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State has banned the activities of members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra in the area.

Also banned in the community were six masquerade groups .

This followed the fracas that claimed the lives of two police officers in the community on Monday.

Our correspondent gathered that the Monday feud was allegedly ignited by rival masquerade cults in the area before some people suspected to be members of IPOB infiltrated them.

An Assistant Commissioner of Police and Assistant Superintendent of Police were killed in the violence

The Oraifite Improvement Union in a statement on Wednesday in Awka, the Anambra State capital described the action as lawless and avoidable.

As a consequence, it banned six masquerade groups whose activities allegedly caused the problem in the community.

The masquerade groups are Otu-Eke, Otu-Afor, Otu-wo, Otu-Orie, Otu-Ube, and Otu Ayaka and all other forms of night masqueraders.

The President General of Oraifite Improvement Union, Offor Uche, and the traditional ruler of the Oraifite, Igwe Daniel Udeoji, signed the statement on behalf of the community.

They said, “The leadership of Oraifite town cannot keep quiet and allow criminal gangs, cultists and miscreants take over the town and tarnish the image of the good people of Oraifite.

“What happened on December 2nd 2019, leading to the killing of some men of the Nigerian Police Force was uncharacteristic of Oraifite culture and tradition.

“The acts are condemned without equivocation in its totality. The good and peace-loving people of Oraifite totally dissociate themselves from the acts of the criminals responsible for the abomination.
