Police Cautions IPOB, MASSOB against disrupting public peace tomorrow with a rally to mark the inauguration of US President-elect, Mr. Donald

The Nigeria Police have cautioned members of the Indige­nous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sov­ereign State of Biafra (MAS­SOB) against disrupting public peace tomorrow with a rally to mark the inauguration of Unit­ed States (US) President-elect, Mr. Donald Trump.
IPOB had hinted that it will hold a mega rally in Port Har­court, Rivers State to mark the inauguration of Trump because “he is a friend of Biafra.”
The Commissioner of Po­lice in Abia State, Mr. Leye Oyebade, said in Umuahia on Wednesday that IPOB and MASSOB members should not go against the provisions of the constitution of Nigeria.
He warned the pro-Biafra groups not to undertake any action capable of disrupting the free movement of law-abiding Nigerians, stressing that the po­lice would not fold their arms to watch them breach the law.
Oyebade said: “There can never be a Republic within a Republic; the Police will con­tinue do their best to ensure that peace reigns.”
IPOB had in a press state­ment signed by its Media and Publicity Officer, Emma Pow­erful, said that it would stage a peaceful mega rally tomorrow in Port Harcourt in honour of Trump.
The group said that the peaceful rally would feature prayers for the immediate re­lease of the detained IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kalu.
“We are calling on all IPOB family members and Biafrans from all over West Africa, Ni­geria and Biafraland to descend on Igweocha for the long await­ed peaceful IPOB-Trump Sol­idarity Rally on Friday, 20th January, 2017. The Venue is Ig­weocha nicknamed Port Har­court, River State”, the state­ment added.
