The clamp down on the separatist group in South Eastern part of the country has spread to the South South geo-political zone as security operatives take over some parts of Oyigbo Local Government Area, especially around Timber Junction in River state.
There was a clash between soldiers and some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra on Tuesday.
The security operatives, who were mainly policemen, also embarked on stop-and-search in order to forestall a repeat of the crisis.
Calm has, however, returned to the area after the clash that lasted for about an hour on Tuesday.
