Following the arrest of IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu and Yoruba activist Sunday Adeyemo, a PDP chief, Emeka Kalu has reportedly stated that the arrest of agitators is not the solution to Nigeria’s problem.
According to him, “The President should pay a listening ear to the voices of reason and take decisive steps to quell the wanton destruction of lives and property by the Boko Haram terrorists, bandits, killer herdsmen and kidnappers, as that is the primary purpose of government.”
Kalu stated, “The present mood of Nigerians is to see Buhari’s administration address fundamental issues that had already disunited the country as well as necessitated the separatist agitations across the country.”
He made it known that, “The government should be cautious in the handling of the treasonable felony charges preferred against the detained leader of the Indigeneous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, and the Oduduwa activist, Sunday Igboho. The duo must not die in the custody of the Department of States Service (DSS) to avoid a repeat of the Nigeria civil war.”
He reportedly opined that, ‘Dialogue remains the panacea in achieving lasting peace in the country, and the use of force by the government’s security agents against unarmed innocent citizens demanding justice is bad”.
