Mazi Kanu shared this warning on his Facebook page. The threat came a few days after the Commissioner warned residents and visitors to steer off the burial grounds.
Issuing a press release the commissioner stated that “there would be a war between the Police and the IPOB on the burial grounds. He also stated that he had resounded a warning to the Traditional ruler of Afaraukwu (Mazi Kanu’s community). Telling him that IPOB and its followers should not be seen close to the community.
And consequences would be attracted if they failed to comply. Furthermore he said if the community should ask for police protection they would oblige. On the condition that IPOB members, Biafra flag, IPOB insignia are not be seen on the grounds.
