Nigerian security operatives launched airstrikes on camps said to be housing top members of the Indigenous People of Biafra in the Illah area of Delta state on Thursday, July 1.
This was confirmed by the commissioner of police in the state, Muhammed Ari, on Thursday, Leadership reports.
Commenting on the development which has been reported as a victory against the dominance of the secessionist southeast group, Ari noted that Illah is the base of IPOB in Delta.
The commissioner sounded it as a stern warning that IPOB members are not welcome in Delta because it is a peace-loving state.
“Illah is the base of IPOB. They come from Onitsha, Anambra State to regroup in Illah. We must tell them they are not welcomed in the state.
"Delta State would be hot for them. Once we identify them through the air, we shall make sure we send them parking and if care is not taken, deal with them the way they want.”
