South-East Does Not Want War, Secession, Umahi Declares

 The Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, has said the
South-East geopolitical zone does not want war, adding that the region also
does not want to leave Nigeria.

Umahi, who is also the Chairman of the South-East Governors’
Forum, stated this on Thursday at Aso Villa in Abuja during the weekly State
House Briefing.

The South-East region has been in the eye of the storm of
late as rampaging gunmen suspected to be members of the Indigenous People of
Biafra burn down police stations, prisons, offices of the Independent National
Electoral Commission, while they also attack other public and private
facilities.

According to reports, the Federal Government in 2017
proscribed the secessionist group, IPOB, led by Nnamdi Kanu, and declared the
group’s activities as illegal but Kanu, who leads an army of youths, has been
agitating for a Biafra Nation, citing perceived injustice and ill-treatment of
Igbos in Nigeria.
