The Police Command in Benue has come out to say that no flag of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was hoisted in Ado Local Government Area of Benue.

The command’s spokesperson, DSP Catherine Anene revealed this recently via an SMS to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

According to her, the Chairman of Ado Local Government Area, Mr James Oche was wrong to allege that the flag was hoisted on Sunday and the rumors that some politicians plotting to destabilise his administration instigated the act are false.

Recall that Mr James Oche also added that IPOB invaded a market at Ekile, beat up revenue collectors, saying the government could no longer collect revenue from the market.

Oche had this to say, “They said the revenue from the market will be put into IPOB purse.

“When this happened, I sent policemen but they took advantage of the #EndSARS protest, beat up the officers and almost took away their guns but they managed to escape with their lives intact.

“I called on Operation Whirl Stroke (OPWS) – military operation, and they were able to make an arrest. I have visited the area and summoned a meeting of the elders of the area.”

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is a Biafran separatist organization in Nigeria. Its main aim is to restore an independent state of Biafra in the former Eastern Region of Nigeria through an independence referendum.

The group was founded in 2012 by Nnamdi Kanu, a British Nigerian political activist known for his prominent advocacy of the contemporary Biafran independence movement.

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra is Nnamdi kanu who is a dual British and Biafran citizen. He created IPOB after he initially gained fame from his broadcasts on Radio Biafra, which was established in 2009.

This was a radio station from London that broadcast messages that called for “freedom of Biafrans” and criticised corruption in the government of Nigeria. Radio Biafra catalyzed Kanu’s rise to the public scene, as he was previously an unknown figure. Kanu was arrested by Nigerian security forces on 19 October 2015, on charges of “sedition, ethnic incitement and treasonable felony.”
