The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris has warned policemen to distant themselves from the proscribed Independent People of Biafra (IPOB).

He also warned them to guide against being infiltrated by those who don’t mean well for the country.

He said this in Abuja on Thursday evening when he met with Commanders of Police Mobile Force (PMF) and Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU).

He said: “I am directing you to keep away from people that do not mean well for this country to avoid putting yourselves in trouble.

“Every police officer must remain loyal to his service, government and citizens of this country.  Especially those serving in the Southeast. As much as possible, keep a distance from IPOB and other illegal organisations.

“Don’t allow any of them to penetrate you to work against this country in any way at all.

“I know that in the past, some Police officers were seen taking pictures with him. I believe it is not in the interest of this country to associate yourselves with somebody that came openly to say he wants the country divided.

“These are very serious issues and I want the men to keep a distance from them because they don’t mean well”.

On the essence of the meeting, the police chief said: “I decided to arrange this meeting because I believe that in the coming months, the PMF is going to be tasked with the responsibility to ensure that law and order is maintained all over the country.

“We are now in December and from January next year, it would be a period with highest forms of legal and illegal activities and I believe it is crucial that I summon all of you to ensure that your mind is prepared to provide security for this country.

“There are issues that are bothering this country right now, there are beehives of political activities and this calls for professionalism from all police officers serving in this country.

“With the political activities, people would try to infiltrate you to get your support by indulging yourself in unwholesome activities”.
