Following the report, Police operatives were then said to have rushed to the scene in order to prevent them from mounting the flags, but they engaged the Police with catapults and stones.
However, 12 suspects were arrested and over fifty flags with different inscriptions of IPOB/MASSOB and Biafran independent movements (BIM) were seized as exhibits.
In the same vain on May 22, at about 7:00 am, there was another intelligence report that some misguided elements suspected to be IPOB Members were sighted at various locations mounting Biafran Flags along Ekwulobia -Uga road in Aguata LGA of Anambra State.
Mohammed said Police patrol teams immediately went after them and arrested another 12 suspects while others escaped.
Other items recovered included: 72 flags and other items with Biafran inscriptions.
