Imo Prison Attack: Criminals Are Using IPOB’s Name to Terrorize Nigerians – Deji Adeyanju



The federal government has been given a warning by Deji Adeyanju over new tactics by criminals who use the name of the Indigenous People of Biafra to commit crimes.

The popular Abuja-based activist made the remark following attacks at government facilities in Owerri, Imo state.

Some unknown gunmen had attacked the police headquarters and the Correctional Centre in Owerri and freed hundreds of inmates.

The gunmen who operated from 1am to 3am, freed suspects in almost all the cells at the State Criminal Investigation Department of the command.

Reacting, Adeyanju warned that such an occurrence in the Southeast may be worse than Boko Haram.

In a series of tweets, the activist wrote: “After the Edo jailbreak, it’s almost impossible to pass By-Pass road and many other places in Benin after 6pm.

“The things some of you are supporting in Imo today will have repercussions tomorrow. And many criminal gangs will use IPOB’s name to operate and terrorize the people.

“Something terrible is happening in the Southeast and if care is not taken, it will be worse than Boko Haram. We need a new president urgently who will not divide the country along tribal and ethnic lines.

“When Boko Haram started causing trouble in Borno, some people were celebrating that it was good to fight the injustice they had suffered. Today, the story is different. I hope those celebrating the destruction in the SE today, don’t regret it tomorrow.”
