The State Police Commissioner has asked civilians to ignore the order and go about their lawful businesses without fear of violence, according to a press statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of the Command, ASP Henry Okoye.

According to the police spokesperson, the Eastern Security Network (ESN) and IPOB are only threatening to break the law and order, but the command has already put its men and officers in strategic places to deal with any potential disruption.

In order to maintain public safety, a large number of security personnel from various branches have been sent out to conduct confidence-building patrols and Operation Show of Force in all 27 local government areas (LGAs) in the state.
