The police in Imo state have apprehended IPOB's Chief Priest during an encounter.
The Imo Police Command has said it has arrested the Chief Priest of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), identified as Ikechukeu Umaefulem.
This was made public by state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Mike Abattam.
He said the suspect, Ikechukeu Umaefulem, was arrested at his shrine in Ikeduru Local Government Area of the state.
Abattam said one pump action gun and five rounds of ammunition, including explosives, knockouts, Biafran flag and other spiritual items were recovered from him.
