The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, has deployed over 500 Police Mobile Force men to Aba to restore peace in the troubled city.
The Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) Operations, Mr. Taiwo Lakanu, on a duty tour to Aba Friday said the I-G wants peace restored to Abia State immediately, hence the deployment of the mobile policemen who had assumed duty in Aba.
“For now we are still monitoring, there is no problem. We are on top of the situation.
“We are working in tandem with other agencies and they are cooperating with us.”
The city was embroiled in a clash between soldiers and IPOB members in Aba between Monday and Tuesday, prompting Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to impose a curfew on the city.
