Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Babachir Lawal has urged Southeast leaders to call the pro-Biafra groups, Movement for Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), to order.
The SGF condemned the activities of the groups, which he constitutes threats to the peace of the country
Lawal spoke in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital during a one-day working visit to the state.
Describing the groups as comprising of misguided youths causing crisis in the country, the SGF said they should not be allowed to continue as their actions were creating the impression that Nigeria is not one
He advised their leaders to create employment opportunities for the youths to keep them busy.
His words: “Some misguided youths in the Southeast are causing crisis in the country, and I charge Igbo leaders to rise to the occasion and call these misguided youths to order.
“These youths create the impression that Nigeria is not one and insecure.”
Governor Dave Umahi, who thanked God for making the visit of the SGF a reality, attributed his achievements to the handiwork of God.
He said the drive of his administration was to ensure improved welfare of Ebonyi and a rapid development of the state.
