South East may present another theatre of confrontation and bloodshed, as security operatives drawn from the police, army, and other security agencies have moved into major streets, in obvious show of force, usually the precusor for such outcomes in the past.

The security personel were sighted in major streets on Wednesday, particulary in Owerri, the Imo State capital, where they patrolled the nooks and crannies ahead of the October 1 sit-at-home order declared by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The combined teams of security agents took to the streets of Owerri in what the state police command called” operation Show of Force.”

Punch reports that the ‘Show of Force’ which caused heavy gridlock in the state capital also took place in all the ten police area commands that make up the state.

The paper also quoted police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, as saying there was no cause for the alarm, adding that the show of force was in response to the sit-at-home order declared by the proscribed IPOB.

The police spokesperson said that the operation Show of Force was to reassure the people of the state that the police in conjunction with the security agencies were capable of protecting them.
