 “The suspects were arrested by a team of Operation Puff Adder when plain-clothed policemen and uniformed ones stormed the area.
“Many residents started moving into their homes to avoid being caught on the wrong side of the law. They proceeded to the school and we were shocked when they brought out people in handcuffs. We thought the school was empty.”
 
In what seems to be a confirmation of the arrest, Bayelsa police spokesperson, Asinim Butswat warned members of the public in the State to stay clear from any form of association with the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (lPOB).
 
Butswat also disclosed that intelligence available to the Command indicates that some misguided elements are planning to set-up IPOB cells in the State, hinting that Police Operatives are on their trail and monitoring their activities.
 
He said; 
“The Command will deal decisively with any person or group of persons that attempt to disrupt the prevailing and peaceful security situation in the State.

Dokubo had said: “I am out for you. And I will get you. I just asked that our people be allowed to vote and you sent your dogs. I’ve broken their teeth.

Nnamdi Kanu, I’m not in your category but for this, I will surely bring you down. I will destroy this evil empire that is working as a hindrance to the restoration of Biafra.”

Dokubo has been against the IPOB leader following a rift between them. The disagreement between the duo is believed to hinge on ideological differences regarding the agitation for Biafra.

“When world leaders or respected commentators talk about Biafra, I respond. I can’t dignify a petty pipeline security guard with a response. He should focus on his business ventures and leave freedom fighting to freedom fighters.

“For a man of his bloated stature to belatedly realise that his father is Fulani, tells you all you need to know about him.

The Igbo leaders have said unequivocally that they oppose Nigeria’s split. On behalf of the Northern Governors, Governor El-Rufai assured the Igbo Leaders that everyone in the North is safe.

Senator Rochas Okorocha, the former governor of Imo State, has stated that the main reason Igbo politicians are not speaking out against Nnamdi Kanu is that they do not want to anger their youngsters.

Many of the South East elders are not in support of Nnamdi Kanu and his objective, according to the Federal lawmaker who was answering questions from BBC Hausa, but they are only wanting to stay safe.

The leaders, he claims, are attempting to avoid losing their children if they come out and express what they really think.
Okorocha also blames a lack of work in the region for the region’s security problems.
