Adeleye Oyebade, formerly, commissioner of police for Abia state has been removed. He was replaced with Anthony Ogbizi. Meanwhile, people suspected to be members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra Thursday razed the Ariaria Police Station in Aba, the commercial hub of Abia.
The Abia State Police Public Relations Officer, Geoffrey Ogbonna, confirmed the burning of the police station, adding that the arsonists also injured a policeman.
“Ariaria police station (Aba) was burnt down this morning.
“The people that did this, we are suspecting are IPOB hoodlums.”
“The people came in their numbers, besieged the station and one of our policemen was beaten up; but glory be to God, we did not lose the officer’s life,” Ogbonna stated.
