Deltans in disarray as Nigerian Airforce jets combs area for IPOB hideouts

The Delta State Police Command has confirmed that an air strike was ordered by the Military on some probable IPOB hideouts in Delta State.

This is coming even as residents of Anwai in Asaba, Ugwuwaosu and Ugbolu were thrown into confusion, after they sighted fighter jets flying very low in the area.

A resident who spoke with newsmen said, “The helicopters passed two times this morning and then we heard booms. Why are they targeting non-existent IPOB and where were they when faceless Fulani herdsmen wrote a threat letter to attack Delta?

“The military aircraft has been disturbing the serenity of our communities and this should stop. We have babies, small children and aged persons who can die from shock.”

The Delta State Police Command confirmed that the air strikes were ordered by the Nigerian Airforce in order to comb the area of IPOB, as they have been led to believe from credible intelligence, that the Group’s state headquarters is located there in Illah.

The Commissioner of Police for Delta State, Muhammad Ari, said: He said, “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 from the air, we shall make sure we send them packing and if care is not taken, deal with them the way they want.”
