1) The embattled Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, has claimed that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Eastern Security Network (ESN) are behind his travails. Kyari made this claim when he appeared before a probe panel led by Joseph Egbunike, a Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) at the Force Headquarters, Abuja.
2). The sit-at-home order by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, on Wednesday, grounded commercial activities in Onitsha, Nnewi, Awka, and other cities in the five South-East States. It was observed that major businesses, including banks, motor parks, filling stations, markets, schools and roadside shops were shut, due to the order.
3.) Northern groups, comprising the Coalition of Northern Groups in Nigeria (CNG) and the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) have described as ‘unacceptable’ the attack on Northerners at the cattle market in Abia State, which claimed the lives of eight people on Tuesday.
