Anambra state Police said that Barr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu wanted.
Anambra State Police Commissioner, CP John Abang, made the statement to Awka on Tuesday.
He said the statement was linked to the killing of two police officers by members of the IPOB in Oraifite, Ekwusigo, the Anambra state local government area on Monday.
The state police public relations officer, SP Haruna Mohammed, said in a press release Monday evening that IPOB members in Oraifite killed two police officers when a team of security agents went to arrest Ejiofor for a report of kidnapping against him.
Haruna said members of the banned group immediately attacked the police, killed two of their men and set fire to a vehicle belonging to the command.
Declaring Ejiofor wanted, CP Abang said, “We implore law-abiding Nigerians from North, South East or West who have information about this man to report to the nearest police station.
“He is a member of the proscribed IPOB, and he is wanted in connection with the killing of two policemen. We implore anyone who has information on him to report to us.”
