The Delta State Police command on Wednesday warned members of Biafra agitators in the state to steer clear trouble as it was ready to deal decisively with any of them found to be involved in the breakdown of law and order.
Mustafa Muhammad, the state police commissioner who gave the warnings while answering questions from Journalists in Asaba, said the police have been deployed to all strategic places in the state, particularly in Asaba to ensure that troublemakers are brought to book.
He said, “Biafra agitators are not recognized in the scheme of the law. We are not taking it lightly if any of them will want to cause trouble in their so-called sit-at-home order. Our men are fully on ground to arrest when they want to enforce illegality.”
DAILY POST observes that at every part of the state, particularly in Asaba, there is police patrol team ready to act in case of trouble.
Although no arrest has been made yet, some members of Befiara group around Umuago in Asaba who used to converge under trees threatening fire and brimstone that Befria would soon take over Nigeria and the state, have fled the area for fear of the unknown.
One of them,Ben Nwankwor who spoke to our correspondent on telephone said, “We had to go into hiding because of the police. We will monitor the situation from our hiding places. Nigeria is not a country. We want our own country. We don’t want Nigeria at all”
