Nigeria-Monday 5, April 2021: The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has accused the operatives of the Eastern Security Network of being responsible for the Monday attack in Owerri, the Imo State capital.

Adamu condemned the act by the security arm of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra.

The IGP stated this in a statement signed by Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba.

“Preliminary investigations have revealed that the attackers, who came in their numbers with sophisticated weapons such as General Purpose Machine Guns (GPMGs), Sub-Machine Guns (SMGs), AK49 rifles, Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs), Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), are members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)/Eastern Security Network (ESN).

The attempt by the attackers to gain access to the Police armoury at the Headquarters was totally and appropriately resisted by Police operatives on duty who repelled the attackers and prevented them from breaking-in and looting the armoury. The armoury is thus intact!

Similarly, the police suffered no human casualty, apart from a police Constable who sustained a minor bullet wound on his shoulder,” the statement partly read.
