Appoint Igbo man Inspector General of Police – Group tells President Buhari

As the tenure of the incumbent IGP, Mohammed Adamu comes to an end, an Igbo socio-political group, World Igbo Peoples Assembly, (WIPAS), has called on ThePresidency to appoint an Igbo man as the next Inspector General of Police, IGP.

In a statement signed by the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, BoT, Mazi Chuks Ibegbu on Saturday the group applauded the appointment of Major General Leo Irabor as Nigerian Chief of Defence Staff and also express a deep confidence that the new Defence helmsman would use his wealth of experience, coupled with the dogged efforts of government and security agencies, to end the myriads of security problems threatening the unity of Nigeria.

WIPAS theorised that there is a coordinated attempt to short change the Igbo of South East by the powers that be notwithstanding General Irabor’s meritorious appointment.

According to the World Igbo Peoples Assembly, each time opportunities at the centre arise, effort is made to deny it the Igbos of South East. We don’t know why this is so, but it has got to stop.


On the conflict between the Eastern Security Network, ESN, and the Army, WIPAS lamented the death of innocent persons at Orlu and advised the army to obey the rules of engagement rather than looking fortrouble with the ESN.

The Igbo Assembly advised the Eastern Security Network, ESN, to be calm and avoid any action that will detract it from its set goal of ensuring sanity in the east forest.

The statement which also addressed 2023 Presidency, advised all the political parties to zone its presidential seat to Igbo land and south east in particular adding that any Presidency aspirant outside Igbo land should withdraw the decision in the interest of the nation.
