MASSOB sit-at-home: Police warn against violence in Anambra


massob_logoThe Anambra Police Command has warned against violence in the state following Saturday’s sit-at-home order by suspected members of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).

Mr Emeka Chukwuemeka, the Public Relations Officers of the command, said in Awka on Friday that members of the public should ignore the order and go about their lawful business.

He said the police in the state would not spare anybody using the unpopular order to disturb the existing peace in the state.

Chukwuemeka said the command would ensure that orderliness was maintained, stressing that the full weight of the law would be applied against anybody caught causing breach of the peace.

Meanwhile, Mr Uchenna Madu, MASSOB’s Director of Information, said that the group would go ahead with the order.

He, however, said it was not aimed at causing trouble, but that the day should be used to pray for the souls of people who lost their lives in recent times in the northern parts of the country.
