The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) led an operation where some Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) camps were bombed in Delta State.
Delta State, Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Ari, has confirmed this in a statement: “Illah is the base of IPOB. They come from Onitsha, Anambra State to regroup in Illah. We must tell them they are not welcomed in the state. Delta State would be hot for them. Once we identify them through the air, we shall make sure we send them parking and if care is not taken, deal with them the way they want.”
Deltans have become more security conscious since last month’s anonymous letter threatening to attack Asaba and Agbor if Governor Ifeanyi Okowa does not withdraw his support for the ban on open grazing in the Southern part of the country.
The bombing of IPOB camp caused tension in Asaba, especially in lllah community, Oshimili North Local Government Area as a combined team of Police, Army and Navy used helicopters to raid the area.
