The Nigeria Police on Saturday vowed to crush members of the Independent Peoples of Biafra planning to organize mass rallies in major cities across the country.
Force Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Olabisi Kolawole, said all state commands had received directives to beef up security within their areas, as part of proactive steps needed to forestall a breakdown of law and order anywhere in the country.
She noted that with the repositioning of the intelligence response unit, the police now monitored all activities, even as critical infrastructure of government, were being protected against all forms of attacks.
“Police everywhere (in the country) have beefed up security; the directive has been there that the police should beef up security all over,” Kolawole said.
“Measures have already been put in place to ensure security, and nobody will be allowed to disturb the peace of the nation.” the FPRO told Sunday Telegraph.
