Naija News learnt that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Anthony Ogbizi, who gave the warning in a statement also said the Police Command is at red alert and would not hesitate to enforce the law on anyone who goes against it.
The IPOB have a right to call for a sit-at-home protest, and the people have a right to either obey or disobey it!
IPOB does not have any right whatsoever to enforce their protest, that is what would constitute a crime!

He also called on parents to caution their young ones to desist from activities or gathering capable of truncating the peace being enjoyed in Abia.
The police commissioner said, “Do not preempt the law enforcement. I want to appeal to parents and other stakeholders to caution their youths against involving in activities that would warrant breakdown of law and order.”“I want to say that the Police Command would not hesitate to enforce the law to protect the lives of the citizens,” he added.
