The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) has described the Indigenous People of Biafra clamouring for secession as a dot in a circle that has nowhere to go.

The President said this in an interview with Arise TV broadcast on Thursday.

He said, “That IPOB is just like a dot in a circle. Even if they want to exit, they will have no access to anywhere.

“And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses and properties, I don’t think IPOB knows what they are talking about.

“In any case, we say we’ll talk to them in the language that they understand. We’ll organise the police and the military to pursue them.”
Buhari also said that he has been assured by “the elderly people” and “the youths” from the South-South part of the country that their region has no intention of seceding.

He said IPOB will not have “access to anywhere” even if they eventually secede from the country.

The President then reiterated his statement that IPOB members will be treated in the “language that they understand”.

“I was encouraged by what I heard, nobody told me. Two statements from the south-south. One by the elderly people, they said this time around there would be no (secession). And again the youth made the same statement; such encouragement,” Buhari said.

IPOB has been agitating for the secession of the South-East.

Kanu made this revelation while reacting to Dokubo’s recent verbal attacks on him.

The IPOB leader also told the former Niger-Delta militant leader to steer clear offl Biafra agitation and focus on being a pipeline security guard.

Asari had recently vowed to bring down Kanu, whom he described as “evil and a “con man”.

Dokubo had said: “I am out for you. And I will get you. I just asked that our people be allowed to vote and you sent your dogs. I’ve broken their teeth.

Nnamdi Kanu, I’m not in your category but for this, I will surely bring you down. I will destroy this evil empire that is working as a hindrance to the restoration of Biafra.”

Dokubo has been against the IPOB leader following a rift between them. The disagreement between the duo is believed to hinge on ideological differences regarding the agitation for Biafra.

“When world leaders or respected commentators talk about Biafra, I respond. I can’t dignify a petty pipeline security guard with a response. He should focus on his business ventures and leave freedom fighting to freedom fighters.

“For a man of his bloated stature to belatedly realise that his father is Fulani, tells you all you need to know about him.

The Igbo leaders have said unequivocally that they oppose Nigeria’s split. On behalf of the Northern Governors, Governor El-Rufai assured the Igbo Leaders that everyone in the North is safe.

Senator Rochas Okorocha, the former governor of Imo State, has stated that the main reason Igbo politicians are not speaking out against Nnamdi Kanu is that they do not want to anger their youngsters.

Many of the South East elders are not in support of Nnamdi Kanu and his objective, according to the Federal lawmaker who was answering questions from BBC Hausa, but they are only wanting to stay safe.

The leaders, he claims, are attempting to avoid losing their children if they come out and express what they really think.
Okorocha also blames a lack of work in the region for the region’s security problems.

He went on to say that the majority of the kids who are triggering the problem are also battling with a lack of basic necessities.

As a result, Okorocha urged the government to enlist the help of the monarchs to resolve sectarian tensions in the country’s southeast.
