Popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has lambasted those agitating for Biafra and the Oduduwa Republic.
Gumi said only useless youths are calling for the disintegration of Nigeria.
Speaking with BBC Pidgin, Gumi insisted that most citizens want to remain as Nigerians, hence those agitating for break up should be ignored.
The Kaduna-based cleric likened those agitating for Biafra, Oduduwa Republic and Arewa Boko Haram.
Gumi said: “Who is coming to divide us? Let me give example, General Murtala Mohammed, the man from Kano, the head of state that was assassinated by Dimka, his wife is a Yoruba woman. So where do you want his children to go? If the nation is divided?
Are they going to be with the Yorubas or are they going to be with Hausas in the north?
Look, let’s forget these Useless youths. These people agitating for Oduduwa and Biafra or Arewa or this Boko Haram, they are the same group of people.”
“Majority of Nigerians want to stay in Nigeria, if they are in doubt, let’s make a referendum.”
