Nnamdi Kanu of the Biafra Indigenous People’s IPOB outlined the NEF Northern Elders Forum’s call that it is prudent to allow the southeast to separate from Nigeria.

NEF on Tuesday said that it has reviewed events and tendencies which suggest that the country is headed for more crises amid the agitations for Biafra, security challenges, among others.

The group noted that Nigerians now live in fear of violence and uncertain future.

NEF claimed that Nigeria’s ability to protect the safety of citizens, protect national territorial integrity and resist violent attacks is weakening to the point that it cannot create threats. The elders lamented the unbridled behavior of the armed criminals against the country, so they said that those who clamored to leave the country should be allowed to do so in order to avoid another war.

And reacting to this, Kanu said, “Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has said in other to prevent another civil war, the Southeast should be allowed to secede if the movement is popular among the people in the region’

“Now, that’s very sensible but there’s a correction: #Biafra includes what you call SouthSouth.”

On the recent report by Global Terrorism Index that rated Nigerian herdsmen as fourth most deadliest terrorist group, Kanu said, “Until @NigeriaGov proscribe Miyetti Allah, Fulani Terror Herdsmen, Al-Queda in the Maghreb, Islamic State in West Africa Province & Ansaru, as terrorist organisations, the world won’t take @NGRPresident serious.
