Ohanaze To Nnamdi Kanu: Reconcile With Asari Dokubo
The youth wing of the leadership of Ohanaze Ndigbo, on Wednesday, urged Nnamdi Kanu, Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to reconcile with Niger Delta Leader, Asari Dokubo.
The President General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, in his statement, also expressed his displeasure at the alleged federal government negotiation with the leadership of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) to end kidnapping and killings in the country.
He noted that the federal government should also dialogue with Biafra agitators whom he claimed are not violent like the herdsmen.
“IPOB should make peace with Asari Dokubo urgently as the rift is threatening the bond and partnership existing between the South East and South/South, misunderstanding between Nnamdi Kanu and Asari Dokubo, and IPOB should use the May 30th to mend fence with ex-Niger Delta agitators rather than sit at home,” he said.
He also called on the federal government to negotiate with all the militant groups in the South South and South East, including MASSOB, to end the Biafra agitation.
He continued, “We are surprised at the meeting between Federal Government represented by Minister of Interior, Abdul-Rahman Dambazau, and the leadership of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) where a huge carrot is thrown to the herdsmen group to help stop kidnapping and tackle insecurity and clashes between herdsmen and farmers. The Federal Government should also extend the same gesture of N100bn to the leadership of Massob and Ipob. What is good for the goose is also good for the gander.
“As Biafrans are celebrating the May 30th Remembrance Day, the Federal Government has the opportunity and visible channel to negotiate with the leadership of MASSOB and other Biafra agitators.
“Reaching out to Biafra agitators is imminent to scuttle the mayhem likely to occur over the killings of Igbos in the North by armed herdsmen and bandits.
“It’s on record that about 167 Igbos fell victim to armed herdsmen and bandits in North West and East in the last few weeks, tension is building up in the South East ahead of May 30th Biafra remembrance day. Presidency should give Biafrans N100bn to avoid reprisal attacks.”
