Following Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe submission that he is a supporter of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, it has been reported that the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has stated that Abaribe should be “cooling his feet in prison” after he “stood surety for someone bent on dismemberment of the country”.
Disclosing this in a Facebook post, Adesina stated that, “Some people incite violence through words or actions, thus exacerbating the security challenges we have. You wonder where they are from, and why they would further stoke a burning fire with incendiary materials.”
He added: “There is one funny Senator who talks about the mismanagement of our diversity as a country, yet he daily uses foul language against those in leadership. He stood surety for someone bent on dismemberment of the country, and when that one vanished, and he should have been cooling his feet in prison, the Senator still spews rubbish. Chief ‘mismanager’ of our diversity.”
He made it known that, “And the President had words for him and his ilk, who exist round the country: “We are ready to arrest and prosecute all persons inciting violence through words or action. Our resolve for a peaceful, united and one Nigeria remains resolute and unwavering…”
This is coming after Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe disclosed in a television interview on Tuesday, that the South-East have been grossly marginalised and unfairly treated by the APC government.
According to him, “Buhari’s regime might crush secessionist agitators but it would be difficult for the government to crush the ideology until the current administration addresses the root cause of the problem and embraces dialogue.”
Abaribe reportedly made it known that aside from IPOB, and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, there are more than 30 separatist organisations in the South-East zone of the country.
