Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) said President Muhammadu Buhari should rather bring superior arguments against the propose succession of Biafra other than thinking towards the use of force .
Kanu entangles this during a chat with journalists at his country home in Afaraukwu umuhahia in Abia State. His outburst is connected to the outcome of the president's meeting with service chiefs where he was quoted to have said on teusday to that the military should deal decisively with Boko-Haram terrorist, IPOB agitators, marauding heardmen and other criminal elements.
The Biafra leader fault the president; saying the penchant by Buhari's recourse to the use of force to ameliorate burning national issues would never see the light of the day, adding that he (Kanu) would not soft-pedal to intimidation of such.
‘’ there was a time the government was contemplating the use of force on the troubled Niger Delta to the which the international community’s came out and frowned against the use of force’’ ‘’ in debate for freedom everybody’s voice has to be heard, Buhari should come up with superior arguments to defeat the idea, not AK47’’, he said those that quickly resort to violence, hate and intimidation do so because they have lost force of arguments’’
Continuing, Kanu said it was totally wrong for the president to compare and lump IPOB, an armless and peaceful mass movement with dreaded sects like boko-haram an internationally recognised terrorist organisation.
Pointing out that the decision by Buhari to unleash Nigeria’s security forces on IPOB had further demonstrated his dictatorship tendencies and his determination to enforce national unity on his own term and those of his people
