Anambra State Police Command has released 17 members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who were arrested last week for protesting the arrest of their leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Ali Okechukwu, Police spokesman said those released were 13 women and four men.

A statement by Okechukwu after the arrest said: “The Anambra State Police Command has been drawn to the spurious publication on police action in the dispersal of a crowd of misguided protesters on Tuesday, Ocotober 20, at Awka.


They were warned by the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hosea Karma, not to breach the public peace again.
