The Biafra Nations League (BNL) has kicked against the shoot at sight order issued by the Acting Inspector General of Police, IGP, Alkali Baba.
Naija News reports that the Acting Inspector-General gave the order when he visited Enugu and the Rivers State, Port Harcourt, recently.
The IGP also asked officers to ignore human rights and the ‘rules of engagement’, asking officers to carry the war to Biafra agitator’s hideouts.
But reacting in a statement signed by its leader, Princewill Chimezie Richard on Thursday, BNL warned that if such an order is carried out the federal government will be dealing with a terrorist group worst than Boko Haram.
According to the Biafra group, the Federal Government was trying to provoke the Biafran agitators to embark on violence that will result in a declaration of a state of emergency.
“FG wants to destabilize the region by ordering the police to shoot at sight,” the group said, adding that “should the Biafran secessionists start operating like the Boko Haram it would be worst than what the government is experiencing in Sambisa forest.
“We will not watch the security agencies clamp down on us, the unknown gunmen are sponsored by politicians for political reasons and have nothing to do with Biafra.”
The group warned that “there will be a high increase in violence should the Federal Government start extrajudicial killings of Biafran agitators and their supporters in the South East and South.”
