The Anambra state police command has arrested five (5) members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for allegedly attacking and burning a police station in Ajali, Orumba North Local Government Area of the State.

This online news platform understands that the five IPOB members were paraded on Monday by the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mustapha Dandaura at the command’s headquarters in Amawbia.

CP Dandaura said the suspects were nabbed by the Command’s Special Anti-robbery Squad after “an aggressive manhunt of perpetrators.”

According to the police commissioner, “On February 15, 2018, at about 2 am hoodlums suspected to be IPOB members attacked Ajalli Division, burnt down the station, three police patrol vehicles and other exhibits.

“The suspects equally carted away three AK 47 rifles from the division’s armoury and injured the Divisional Crime Officer who was on a visiting round.

“Following the incident, the command’s Special Anti-robbery Squad embarked on an aggressive manhunt of perpetrators and arrested five of the suspects,” Dandaura added.
