Earlier this morning, at around 12:10am, the Indigenous Members of Biafra regrouped and launched a surprise attack on the Mobile Policemen stationed at Oyigbo junction.
The attack resulted in the death of a Police Sergeant identified as Sgt. Steven Daniel, injuring two and set a patrol vehicle ablaze as a result of which a Sterling SMG Riffle belonging to the deceased Sgt. was taken by the attackers.
Police intervention resulted in the arrest of nine more members of the IPOB, thereby bringing the total number of arrested suspects to 32.
The suspects are currently aiding the police in their investigation and will be due in Court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
In their recent press release concerning the attacks, the Police Command have promised to spare no efforts in dealing with any criminal elements in the State after ensuring that order was restored, and seeing to it that people could safely go about their business once more.
