A protest by the proscribed secessionist group, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB in Ebonyi has led to the burning of Police station in the state.
According to reports, suspected members of the group launched an attack on the Central Police Station in Abakaliki, the state capital.

The station, located along the Abakaliki-Enugu Highway, and close to the international market, was set ablaze by persons who claimed they were IPOB members.

They also vandalised and torched cars, tricycles and motorcycles within the vicinity of the station.

IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, had called on his members to embark on a cleanup exercise/protest around major cities in the South East and South-South geo-political zones on Monday.

The exercise was peaceful in Ikwo local government area, where security agents allowed members of the group to move around without any confrontation.

But in Abakaliki, the proscribed group members, who clearly identified themselves as members of the group, launched an attack on the Police station around 3pm.

The claimed that some of their members were killed by the Police during last week’s disturbances in front of the station.

As reports of the incident filtered in, residents ran back to their houses for fear of being caught in cross fire.
