Terrorism: Bus driver burnt alive, 2 other vehicles set ablaze as IPOB/ESN enforce sit-at-home

Viral TikTok video of lady’s torture: Edo Police arrests two, says lady alive  The Edo State Police Command has arrested two suspected cultists who allegedly tortured and humiliated a lady identified as Queen Perri following a viral TikTok video she made on social media.  Edo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Philip Ogbadu disclosed this while addressing journalists after the monthly state’s security meeting at the Government House in Benin City.  He said two of the boys involved in the torture of the lady have been arrested and in police custody, while the command has intensified search for the other culprits.  Ogbadu said the girl is alive and being taken care of at a health facility in the state, as against the news making the rounds on social media alleging that the girl had died.  According to him, "It was alleged that the girl was killed. She is alive, but because of the social stigma that may be attached, we will not bring them out now. However, you will see the boys later.”  Reassuring the commitment of the security agencies in the state to the security of lives and property of citizens, the Police Commissioner stated: "We have already drawn an operation for the ember months. Very soon, you will see an improvement in our operations; the military too are coming out to launch an operation from Monday on Ehor Road. Definitely, it's going to be safe during the ember months
Matters Arising gathered that, a bus driver, whose identity is yet to be disclosed has been burnt alive at Mbaise in Imo State by gunmen enforcing IPOB/ESN sit-at-home.

The gunmen also burnt a truck heading to Owerri in the same Mbaise town, Tribune reports.

The victim who was driving a bus loaded with passengers was coming from Owerri when it was attacked and set ablaze at Oboma Nguru Mbaise, while the truck heading to Owerri was burnt at Ahiara junction.

An eyewitness said before setting the bus ablaze, the passengers were ordered out of the bus by the gunmen.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had declared a sit-at-home on October 1, 2021, when Nigeria will be celebrating its 61st Independence anniversary

In compliance with this, residents of Owerri, Imo State capital on Friday shut down their businesses and stayed indoors.

The situation virtually paralysed both economic and social activities in the entire state

Major roads such as Mbaise, Okigwe, Wethedral, Duglas, Port Harcourt, Onitsha and Aba along with streets in Owerri were empty as motorists and commercial vehicles were nowhere to be found to convey the few stranded passengers on the roads to their destinations.

The situation at hotels, eateries, motor parks, commercial institutions, business centres in Owerri was the same as their premises were locked.

One of the executives of IPOB, Chika Edoziem, last Friday said the separatist group would lock down the entire South-East region on October 1.

He said, “The 1st of October declared total shutdown in Biafra land. There shall be no movement in Biafra land on the 1st of October being Nigerian Independence day. Again from tonight, all Nigerian flags mounted anywhere in Biafra land must be brought down; banks exempted.

“IPOB leadership will communicate to banks directly and give them the reason why they must peacefully bring down the flag. Otherwise, we do it ourselves in our own way.”

The leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has been detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) since the third week of June following his arrest in Kenya and repatriation to Nigeria.
