A suspected leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Obinwanne Iwu has been beaten to death by an angry mob in Oru Ahiara in Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State.

Angry Mob Beat IPOB Leader To Death For Trying To Enforce Sit-At-Home Order In Imo

Imo State Commissioner of Police, Rabiu Hussaini confirmed the incident in a statement issued on Monday by the police spokesman, CSP Mike Abattam.

According to him, the 34-year-old victim was beaten to death by angry villagers who were infuriated that he and his gang were forcing them to close their shops and obey the IPOB’s sit-at-home order.

The CP added that before a police patrol team could arrive at the scene, the IPOB leader had been lynched, while his gang members escaped, and the angry villagers fled upon sighting the security operatives.

“On 20/09/2021 at about 07:45hrs, while residents of Umuagbavo Oru Ahiara in Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State, came out of their houses for their daily business activities. Shops were opened and people were going about their lawful businesses.

“When one Obinwanne Iwu ‘m’ age 34 years, a native Ahiara in Ahiazu Mbaise LGA of Imo State, an escapee of Imo Correctional Centre Owerri and a member of the proscribed IPOB/ESN terror group, came to the market with members of his gang attacking, looting opened shops and forcing people to lock up their shops and preventing them from doing their legitimate businesses.”

“Shouting at the top of their voices today is Monday and everybody must obey the sit at home order “. This did not go down well with the people who resisted it in its entirety.

“In the pandemonium that ensured, angry mobs in their numbers held the leader of the gang, one Obinwanne Iwu tied his hands behind, while others fled the scene into hiding. In the process, he was mercilessly beaten to death, before the police patrol team arrived at the scene. Efforts made by the police patrol team to arrest the perpetrators proved abortive as they all fled the scene on sighting the patrol team.”

However, the CP has condemned “The barbaric act, advised members of the public to always hand over suspects to the Police for proper investigation and prosecution. Instead of taking the laws into their hands, he then set up an investigating team from the State Criminal Intelligence Investigation Department (SCIID) of the command to commence investigation into the mob action.”

I said it here just a few days ago that if this IPOB/ESN people don't stop certain things a, that another group may arise and it will be a free for all fight. They want to be heard, but don't want to listen to anybody.
