President Muhammadu Buhari

The Ebonyi Police Command on Monday warned the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and political parties’ supporters against disruptive acts during President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the state on Tuesday.

Ebonyi Commissioner of Police (CP), Titus Lamorde, gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abakaliki.

He said the command was well equipped to deal with all forms of security challenges before, during and after the president’s visit.

According to Mr. Lamorde, any individual or group of persons that foment trouble before, during and after the visit would be severely dealt with, as people are advised to conduct themselves well.

“I will not disclose the number of personnel we have drafted for security reasons, but I assure citizens that enough personnel have been deployed across the state to ensure a hitch-free visit.

“The president’s visit is a welcome development as the citizens should cooperate with security agencies to make it a successful one,” he said.

He said his officers had been adequately trained to relate well with the citizens during the visit and advised people to conduct their activities within the confines of the law.

“We would not meddle into political issues as security outfit, but the visit is developmentally-oriented because of the numerous projects the President would inaugurate.

“My officers would not intimidate or harass individuals or groups as the duty of ensuring a hitch-free event is a collective one,” he said.

    Criminal Nigerian Police from Crooked Tribe. Protest is never security treat every where in the World over but only in Nigeria and to Buhari.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    Buhari knows very well that he will never be welcomed by the mainstream Igbo population because of the extra-judicial killings he ordered in the SE. This visit is tasteless and poignant in nature, those governors inviting him know that people are still very angry, many are still mourning the deaths of their children and the forcefully disappeared are no where to be found yet they selfishly invite the villain just for political gains.

    THE VISIT IS INSENSITIVE TO THE FEELINGS OF THE PEOPLE, THIS IS THE WRONG TIME .

    • tundemash

      Stay indoors to prove how unpopular those Igbo govs are Buhari are.

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        Hope he will just go to the government house and disappear…..we would rather have him stay away because it is against tradition in Igbo land to welcome such a person, it is considered a taboo…..”.Alu” . The highest crime in Igbo culture is “OCHU” ….THE TAKING OF INNOCENT LIVE.

        • Yahaya

          My brother, stop ranting. Even if he appear in d public u can’t do anything, if u try anything funny, tell ur parents to accept my condolence

          • abodes_124

            So he is coming with his army for mop up operation

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Yes we can sit at home while the bloodthirsty tyrant runs around with his local lackeys .

        • tundemash

          I guess those govs who invited him are not Igbos then. Sore loser !

          • abodes_124

            they have been disinherired

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            They work for the corrupt tyrannical establishment, they are not part of the equation anymore.They represent themselves if they have to agree to such an insensitive visit. I maintain, the visit is ill timed .

          • Otile

            Abubakar tundemash the dirty pig,
            Are you still farting through your mouth?
            Omo ale.

        • Anasieze Donatus

          No OCHU was committed unless you are saying that whenever an IGBO ARMED ROBBER is killed in robbery operation ,it becomes an OCHU and you can still help by NKO MEE as that is the antidote to OCHU..

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            The blood is still dripping from the killer’s hands and the wound in the hearts of the Igbo is still fresh…….we can do without the tyrant for now because w1e are still mourning our beloved youth.

          • Anasieze Donatus

            WHO IS WE .TALK FOR YOURSELF AS YOUR REPRESENT NOBODY BUT YOUR ANGRY SELF.ONLY IDIOTS WHERE KILLED AND THE LIVING WILL MOVE ON

      • Otile

        Abubakar tundemash,
        Is there any time Igbo is mentioned without you opening your smelly mouth? The bad thing about your meddling is that you usually sound asinine and make no sense. It is time you stopped poking your stinky nose into Igbo affairs. Dirty pig.

        • Julius

          I’m sure you will dress up in your pink dress and high heels to see the president. Lmaooooooooo…dumb ass fag !

      • abodes_124

        he may get the silent treatment , thanks for that.

        • Julius

          lolz

        • pambegua

          PMB is ñot in SE to received loud reception or noisy population. Its not campaign but to COMMISSIONED PROJECTS. Pmb hate noise but like action

      • Julius

        Hahahahahahahaha…are you laughing ?

    • Anasieze Donatus

      Always exhibiting your stupidity and hatred for the Fulani people. I am watching how long your hatred will last and the happy thing is that people like you will not count when the igbos Nation are asked to line up. The President will continue to be your heart break till HBP final sets in .No sane igbo man was killed at Main market, ariria ,nkwo nnewi but criminal masquerading as agitators and more will be killed if they attempt any rubbish during the Presidents visit and the real igbos have SPOKEN. HAUSA HATER KEEP YOUR PVC because 2019 is at hand

      • abodes_124

        Threats , threats and more threats. conquered natives should not speak up. the Igbo Fulani haters did cast millions of votes for Yaradua you know. The hatred , if that is what you want to call the distaste , is if for Buhari because of his actions and his words and nor because of his person.

    • abodes_124

      he goes at his own peril

      • pambegua

        He is there already. Empty threats

        • abodes_124

          Not a threat. Just a statement of concern

          • pambegua

            That statement of concern made it more empty

          • abodes_124

            syntax !

    • Julius

      Didn’t you say he is too scare of ipob to visit Igbo land ?

  • Mizch

    Why did he not go to condole the people of Enugu State where Fulani herdsmen slaughtered our people or to Abia State where the Army killed our youths? SIT AT HOME and watch your TV sets.

    • Julius

      Did he visit Jos, Lagos, Ibadan, Ondo where those same herdsmen killed some people ? Oh, I forgot, you are SPECIAL !. I agree that he should have at least said something about all of it ..be it by press conference or some kind of announcements.

  • BABUYANMA

    Police should shoot the traitors on sight. Worthless cockroaches!

    • Otile

      Son of a whore.

      • Yahaya

    • Eluba Inas

      Please, do not call your fellow citizens “cockroaches.” We have a democratic government and people are free to express opposing views peacefully.

    • Yahaya

      Exactly, my brother. No part of d country or section can hold d all country to ramson

    • abodes_124

      The ‘traitors’ and terrorists’ hey have already been shot. first the emperor sent his army divisions to pacify the natives. now he is going on a triumphal march through conquered territory. he will receive appropriate welcome.

      • Julius

        Be serious sir. Don’t get people killed. I bet you won’t be there to give him your ‘appropriate welcome’.

        • abodes_124

          I will be there of course. You sabee me before ?

          • Julius

            Nah, you won’t be there…you will be on the internet yapping while sending some kids and women to do your fighting. Yeah a sabi you ! Wicked you. You no see the news coming out about your emperor kanu ? Stay tuned !

  • pambegua

    The leader of the outlawed terrorist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu is swimming in mucky waters as the international media arm of Radio Biafra, has announced his sack following the resumption of broadcast on Sunday.

    Nnamdi Kanu was fired as director and leader of IPOB according to the broadcast monitored by Daily Independent Newspaper.

    It was learnt that the Radio Biafra’s programme lasted for one hour between 6am -7am on Sunday with the lady announcer identified Ifeoma Okorafor.

    Okorafor announced that “Mazi Nnamdi Nwanekaenyi Kanu, the former Director of Radio Biafra is hereby dismissed and removed as Director of Radio Biafra following extensive and intensive consultations.

    Mazi Ezenwachukwu Sampson Okwudili has been appointed to replace Kanu.

    While reeling out his offences that culminated in his sack, Okorofor explained that Kanu has personalised the affairs of the organisation which led to the confrontation with the military that led to several death of members.

  • Julius

    Let’s hope and pray that these fools won’t try anything to the President during his visit. A mad dog usually know his owner !

  • pambegua

    Where those IPOB members? BUHARI arrived Enugu now in Ebonyi. The reception he received is more than the one he received in his hometown Katsina

    • Julius

      Good point and very accurate . Like I said, it’s only these fraudulent biafool idiots making noise online, fake crying about some nonsense imaginary country that hates Buhari. Now, we don see oo.
