South-East governors should resolve IPOB’s Biafra agitation
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State in his own reaction said South-East governors were in the best position to resolve the agitation for Biafra by the Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB).
The Ekiti governor said it was northern governors who intervened when Arewa youth groups issued a quit notice to the Igbo, hence, same should be replicated in the South-East.
“For whatever reasons, the Federal Government should have allowed the South-East governors to interface with Kanu and resolve issues instead of this show of force
“If northern governors were allowed to resolve the Arewa youths threat that Igbo should leave the North, why not allow South-East governors to resolve Kanu’s?” he queried. Tension in Jos as Lalong slams dusk-to-dawn curfew Meanwhile, there was tension yesterday evening at the Jos City centre, especially the Ahmadu Bello Way as well as other surrounding communities of Apata, Chobe, Katako all in Jos North local government area as residents were seen hurriedly locking up shops and some vacating their homes for reasons no one could actually say.
The panicky movements generated many versions of rumours, causing fears among residents and making security agents to patrol the affected areas and other troubled spots in the city. Unconfirmed reports say some people had lost their lives in the pandemonium but security sources debunked such reports, saying “no one died as a result of the panic.”
According to a resident of Apata, Chijioke Nna, a trader at the Terminus Market, “I saw people hurriedly locking their shops and I also locked mine. On getting to the road to get Keke to my house in Chobe, I discovered the area was deserted and passengers were stranded so people started running along the routes to their houses to avoid any unpalatable situation.”
