The case of Oyigbo LGA was totally different as it was hijacked by hoodlums and miscreants of INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF BIAFRA, IPOB.

The Executive Chairman, Hon. Prince Gerald Oforji JP, who described the mayhem unleashed by miscreants and hoodlums that hijacked the hitherto peaceful #EndSARS protests as “an unusual and challenging period for the Police Force” pointed out that it was needless and “an ill-wind that blew no one any good”.

The Council Chairman passionately implored the full renewer of Police force commitment to the provision of security of lives and property in the LGA, as was the case before the #ENDSars protests.

The good people of Oyigbo LGA had, before now, enjoyed excellent policing service and wish that the Police force comes fully on stream and return to all the security posts in the LGA, the Council Chairman added.
