CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA ELDERS FORUM ASK BUHARI TO RELEASE AND DIALOGUE WITH KANU


We find it curious that the Federal Government of Nigeria that has pledged total support for a two state solution to the Israel – Palestinian conflict, as well as support for the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), is not addressing the demand of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for a state of their own. To date, the leader of IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu is still under detention while there are frequent killings of the protesting members of the Movement. The latest in the series of attacks on the IPOB occurred on 9th February, 2016 when over twenty two members of the Movement were killed by soldiers during a prayer meeting in Aba.


It is difficult to rationalize why a government that is clamping down on agitations for self determination by an ethnic group within Nigeria, could be supporting such agitations in foreign countries. We recommend to the Government that as it is considering the case of SADR and the Palestinians, it should in like manner open dialogue with IPOB. The solution to the Biafra agitation is dialogue. While we discountenance any secessionist move, the solution to the Biafran agitation is dialogue.

  1. U cannot speak with both sides of your mouth! What if the request of IPOB is complete and otter secession from this evil empire called nigeria which I know for sure is their resolve? so are u advising the peadophile and child rapist to wave it out as u were in discountenance with a move of secession.
