Insecurity: Military, police will take care of IPOB-Buhari


….Says its like a dot in a circle


President Muhammadu Buhari says the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) says he has mandated the military and police to take care of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra adding that the group which has been calling fir secession is” like a dot in a circle.”
Speaking today on an exclusive Arise television programme he said the group is calling for what they can’t withstand.


President Buhari faulted those calling for secession, adding that no legitimate government can be changed.

He said, “I was encouraged by what I heard, nobody told me. Two statements from the south south: one by the elderly people, they said this time around there would be no (secession). And again the youth made the same statement; such encouragement.

“So that IPOB is just like a dot in a circle. Even if they want to exit, they’ll have no access to anywhere. And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses and properties. I don’t think IPOB knows what they are talking about.

“In any case, we say we’ll talk to them in the language that they understand. We’ll organise the police and the military to pursue them.”
