Attack on INEC facility was carried out by IPOB — Police


Imo State Police Command has blamed the recent attack on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Imo state, on the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Mike Abattam, the spokesman of the command, revealed that the attack on INEC’s facility was the doing of members of INEC.

He further revealed that the command didn’t just arrive at the conclusion that IPOB members were responsible for the attack but through thorough investigations.

“They are suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra. It is the outcome of our investigation that will determine those that will be held complicit.

“We gave them a hot chase. The Command’s tactical teams were able to follow them, and in the process, we were able to neutralise three of them,” he told Channels TV.

It was earlier reported that some unknown gunmen attacked the INEC facility in Owerri, Imo state, on Monday, where no fewer than three suspects lost their lives.
