Agitations In Nigeria
Rev. Fr. Robert Achiaga has advised the governments at all levels in Nigeria to embrace dialogue with aggrieved groups to end violent agitations in the country.
Rev Uma Ukpai has said those agitating for actualisation of Biafra are mad people. The renowned cleric made the statement at the headquarters of his ministry.
A group, Imeobi Igbo Forum, has begged Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to keep off the burial venue of his parents to avoid any uncertainties.
A former secretary-general of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku has said going by the level of insecurity and unprecedented diminution of national unity, Nigeria is on the brink of a national disaster.
IPOB had called for a sit-at-home on Thursday, May 30 in all Igbo land to celebrate fallen Biafra heroes and their struggle for self-determination. but the police urged members of the public to disregard the order.
The Enugu state police command spokesman said the IPOB members, which included 130 male and 10 female, were arrested for allegedly organising unlawful procession and display of proscribed items on the streets.
