The new Commissioner of Police in Plateau State, Adekunle Oladunjoye, has warned Igbos resident in the state against taking part in the pro-Biafra protests currently rocking the South-east and some parts of the South-south states.
CP Oladunjoye, who gave the warning yesterday when he received the Igbo community in his office, said “I have not seen anything of such here in Plateau. But we have been directed to talk to you about MASSOB (Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra). We know it is an Igbo issue, and some people may want to show sympathy. If care is not taken, some people may want to hold the rally here. We want to appeal to you to let sleeping dogs lie”.
Responding, the President General of the Igbo community, Barrister Innocent Asogwa, who led the group alongside the community’s traditional ruler, Professor Joseph Obilom, assured the police that they will not engage in such protests.
Barrister Asogwa described the protests as illegal, insisting that many options abound for the agitators, including going to the court or the international community to seek justice against the alleged marginalization.
