Some unknown gunmen had attacked the police headquarters and the Correctional Centre in Owerri and freed hundreds of inmates.
The gunmen who operated from 1am to 3am, freed suspects in almost all the cells at the State Criminal Investigation Department of the command.
Reacting, Adeyanju warned that such an occurrence in the Southeast may be worse than Boko Haram.
“The things some of you are supporting in Imo today will have repercussions tomorrow. And many criminal gangs will use IPOB’s name to operate and terrorize the people.
“Something terrible is happening in the Southeast and if care is not taken, it will be worse than Boko Haram. We need a new president urgently who will not divide the country along tribal and ethnic lines.
“When Boko Haram started causing trouble in Borno, some people were celebrating that it was good to fight the injustice they had suffered. Today, the story is different. I hope those celebrating the destruction in the SE today, don’t regret it tomorrow.”
