Growing dissatisfaction, disaffection, and perceived injustice have fueled secessionist agitations in Southern Nigeria of late. While detained Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho is an arrowhead of Yoruba Nation in the South-West, embattled Nnamdi Kanu leads the proscribed secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra in the South-East. jamb results
Kanu, is currently in the custody of the Department of States Service facing terrorism and treasonable charges before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Meanwhile, Igboho, whose home was invaded on July 1, 2021, around 1am in Ibadan has been in a Beninese correctional facility since July 19, 2021.
When asked whether the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari was considering political solution to settle the secessionist group in the country, Malami said, “As far as the security situation is concerned and as far as governance and this administration is concerned, you cannot rule out all possibilities. But crime is a crime; there are criminal undertones associated with certain conducts, you cannot away the rights of the government to take steps with particular regards to ensuring that the people are brought to book.”
In Opara’s words: “For someone agitating for self-determination, the political solution there is to address all the things he is agitating for and the things those supporting him are agitating for: equitable distribution of appointment, creating employment, fight corruption with open mind, etc.
“If the government attack those issues and allow him to agitate if he wants to agitate. He is not the only one agitating; Nnamdi Kanu and some other persons are agitating and when people are agitating, what you should do is to create a solution by calling them to the round table to ask them, ‘What is the problem?’ There is no problem that has no solution.”
When asked whether political solution will curtail IPOB agitation, the counsel said, “Yes, it can; it is all about talking (dialogue). Don’t we have issues in our various families? Don’t we have issues at work and other places? But everybody comes to the round table to resolve it.”
“The first step is to release him to Ohanaeze and the traditional rulers. That will calm the situation down and pave the way for people to talk. It is all about the approach but you cannot beat a child and ask the child not to cry”.
