“The Arewa youths also reacted based on what they thought was the decision of majority of the people of the south east.
“Kanu is still talking of Biafra but leaders from the region have told him that what they need is restructuring and not secession. The question of secession simply does not arise.
''Despite the Boko Haram crisis in the north east, there are still Igbos living there.
“There is no part of this country you go to that you do not find another tribe settling there. How do you want to break up the country?
