The commissioner of Police Abia, State Command, CP Adeleye Oyebade has declared the recently formed Biafra Security Service of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), led by Nnamdi Kanu, illegal.
He was reacting to video of showing Nnamdi Kanu, inspecting some youths called ‘secret service’ agents.
Kanu is seen in the footage walking around and in between the ‘guard of honour’.
Oyebade, however, told newsmen at the command’s headquarters in Umuahia, that the Nigerian constitution recognizes “only the Nigeria Police, Nigerian Army and the Department of States Service”.
The state police boss warned that the full weight of the law would be brought upon the organizers of BSS.
Oyebade said the police and other security operatives in the state would not fold their hands and watch unscrupulous elements disrupt the relative peace.
The CP reiterated that the police is in synergy with other sister agencies to make the state safe for business and economic activities to thrive.
He also paraded suspected armed robbers, kidnappers and cultists still being investigated.
Oyebade added that the suspects would soon be arraigned in court.
They include a car snatcher identified as Onyekachi Nwaogu of No. 7 Nwankwo Street off Obohia, Aba South Local Government Area of the state.
Detectives attached to the D7 SCIID, Umuahia, also recovered a Red coloured Toyota Camry with reg number SSM 521 TP with engine number 5X3249568 and chasis no. 4018G12K4TU74221 suspected to have been stolen from its owner.
