Adamu Muhammed, Nigeria’s inspector-general of police (IGP), on Tuesday visited the Imo police command to inspect damages caused by the attack on prison and police facilities in the State.
The IGp vowed to clamp down on members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who he said carried out the attack.
Candidreporters.com earlier reported how the two facilities were attacked by gunmen who freed over 1,500 prisoners in the early hours of Monday.
Some police vehicles were also razed in the incident which the IGP said was masterminded by IPOB.
Addressing police officers in Owerri, the state capital, the IGP said there is “no hiding place” for the IPOB members.
“Those that were released by the attackers, I have been told, some of them belong to the IPOB group; the proscribed IPOB group,” he said.
“We are sending this message to them that there will be no hiding place. They will be re-arrested and many more of the criminals within that group will be arrested.”
