Suspected IPOB members raze Police station in Ariaria Market, Aba



Persons suspected to be members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) burnt down the Ariaria Police Divisional Headquarters, Aba in the early hours of Thursday.

The attack, SUN reports was as a result of rumours that soldiers attacked some houses, burning them to the ground in Umuode near Aba and its environs.

See photos below:

There is an ongoing military operation in the South East titled Exercise Egwu Eke II, also known as Python Dance, and it is aimed at exercising the troops of 82 Division, to enhance their proficiency in internal security duties, according to Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman, the spokesperson of the Nigerian Army.

Usman said that the operation is also to address to security challenges of kidnapping, armed robbery, that are associated with the ember-period in that particular region.

The bit does raise the question that: Are cases of kidnapping the responsibility of the army’s or the police?

Similar exercises have taken place within the North West and North Central parts of the country in April this year, the General added.

Watch Usman speak HERE.

    It’s not easy. These ipob has been spreading false rumors so as to incite people to violence. I’m happy they failed woefully. Why nnamdi wants people to die so bad to prop his ego is what I don’t understand.

      Hi, I assume you have gotten your visa? Because that’s the main reason people pay for accommodation for visa application. In my experience from traveling there they usually request for return ticket to be sure you are going back. Also, I always paid for accommodation before traveling so to be safe maybe you just pay before you travel cos for some reason their immigration guys can like to be hostile to us Nigerians.

      Correction – What “Igbo people” have labored for. Don’t get it twisted, that imbecile and his foolish followers are ON THEIR OWN. Most Igbo people don’t support or agree with them.

    Thanks to satanist kanu and his retarded followers, the hausas are retaliating and avenging the attack on northerners in the East. As I type, Jos is on fire as igbos are being attacked. Those of u always defending him, I hope u will join the fight to protect ur people? No be to dey hide behind ur phones to dey form voltron like the cowards u are! Come and fight o, because this was always going to be the outcome. Don’t act like u don’t know.
    I’m so pissed because innocent and poor people will die like chickens while the leaders who incite all these will be safely hidden.

    This is why education is important in the country. Someone who went to school will be thinking on how to prosper in life and not going about burning houses down. Their leader´s family is in London going forward and his uneducated fellowers are destorying their own enviroment. What a shame to you all.. God bless Nigeria in Jesus Namen Amen. One Nigeria praise God Amen.

    Please how did they arrive at the notion that the police station was burnt by IPOB guys?????????? It could be from the military to instigate chaos and come in. The whole problem was caused by the Nigerian army invading the streets and residence of Nnamdi kanu. IPOB is non violent movement and they are asking for referendum to exit this useless country. You can stop a popular movement by force check your history

    The igbos and hausas are the scum of this nation. They are so similar in character yet they don’t see it. Always playing the victim (the world against them), feeling entitled to lead, feeling like they are better than everyone else, extreme tribalists, and DUMB AF! Following leaders like fools who push them to die (think Boko Harm & IPOB).
    You keep coming for each other but u fail to see just how alike u both are. You live in other people’s lands yet can’t let others live in yours. You live in other people’s lands then throw stones at them. Mumus, the lot of u.

    The right question now how did we get here from a peaceful country just 2yrs ago? Lay it at the doorstep of out divisive president. Kanu is not an issue. The Igbo man is interested in minding his affairs until Buhari decided that the insult of Igbo marginalisation must become a public specter, an openly derisive state policy.

    Face Buhari, Kanu overnight can become irrelevant if Igbos feel the wrongs are being righted. Please don’t believe Kanu does not have many followers, he does, but only so long as Buhari makes the humiliation of Ndigbo a state policy of his government.

      Sorry, what is the “humiliation of Ndigbo” that you’re referring to? This is what I just can’t understand…. The Nigerian Government has failed all of us equally; Ayo in Makoko Slum, Chidi in Abia, and Suleman in Borno! The most under-developed, God-forsaken places in Nigeria are for sure in the North! The answer is better leaders, not a new country! Igbo, Yoruba & Hausa leaders alike have all failed their people. All I see with this Biafra nonsense is joblessness and idle hands.

    Nigerian government. give Nnamdi kanu his documents so that he can go back to his place of abode! !!!
    You didn’t have to arrest him in the first place Ipob was around before Buhari! Why arrest the man? You should have let him talk from wherever he was!

    When you are a leader, realize that not everyone will sing you songs of praise. Those who don’t are actually the ones who bring out the best in you as a leader, not. the sycophants!

    Is there marginalization, injustice, inequality in the Nigeria?
    Instead of addressing these issues Nigerian government under Buhari resorted to gagging the people! !
    A good leader must listen to their people and try to make amends!
    Stop threatening and treating citizens like they are idiots and children !
    President Buhari, you must listen to your people. In case you missed the memo, Nigeria is now DEMOCRATIC!
    Listen to south Easterners, whether they voted for you or not, you are now their president and have the moral, legal obligation to listen to them.
    Stop this Python dance immediately !!!
    Nigerian army should face Boko Haram! There’s no war in Igboland. Let the police handle civil issues, if there’s any! !!
    As for useless Igboland politicians , who support this because of elections, you all are pathetic and self- centered! !!
    Right now am even thinking of boycotting the elections. ! !! An idea, I was against before now!!!

    why use force to subdue the voice of a group of people. Why not a dialogue? Many innocent lives have been wasted within these past days and most of us are happy and rejoicing over this. Why can’t we have a balanced reporting on this platform. All I see is what ipob members allegedly did (which obviously is condemnable). I haven’t seen a report on what the fear, the panic and killing this operation ‘viper’ dance has caused. Today, it is the igbo, tomorrow it may be you.

    There is a way to go about things in life…..That man said horible stuff that can cause war nobody is seeing it. Did he speak to Igbos or was he not listing names of states that he wants to force into Biafra?……This man does not represent alot of Igbo people i know. Most people shouting i am BIAFRA are in foreign lands…..Lets allow peace reign.
