MEN of the Anambra State Police Command has issued a warrant for the arrest of Indigenous People of Biafra (Ipob) lawyer Ifeanyi Ejiofor over the killing of two police officers in Anambra State.
Mr Ejiofor, who is the personal lawyer of Ipob leader Nnamdi Kanu, has been high profile of late, acting as the spokesman for the secessionist group. Of late, his home has been under siege by the police and the Anambra State police commissioner John Abang has finally revealed that it has to do with the murder of two of his men.
He said Mr Ejiofor is wanted in connection with the killing of two police officers by Ipob members in Oraifite, in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State on Monday. Haruna Mohammed, a spokesman for the command, added that Ipob members in Oraifite killed two police officers when a team of security men went to arrest Mr Ejiofor over a complaint of abduction levelled against him.
According to Mr Haruna, the Ipob members immediately attacked the police, killing two of them and set ablaze a vehicle belonging to the command. He called on any member of the public with details of Mr Ejiofor’s whereabouts to contact the police immediately.
Mr Abang added: “We implore law-abiding Nigerians from the north, southeast or west who have information about this man to report to the nearest police station. He is a member of the proscribed Ipob and he is wanted in connection with the killing of two policemen, so we implore anyone who has information on him to report to us.”
