In a stark message of using whatever force available to keep Nigeria one, President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that it were better for mass suicide rather than allow for the realization of Biafra.
Speaking in his home state of Katsina on Monday, Buhari warned that he would use all resources at his disposal to crush any agitation for the division of Nigeria.
Speaking at the palace of Emir of Katsina, the president urged Nigerians to be patient with his government as, according to him, the current hardship being experienced, may not be unconnected with efforts at laying a solid foundation for sustainable nation building.
According to him, those behind the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Buhari are mere “kids” who were not born during the civil war, stressing that “today, Nigeria is a strong and united sovereign entity because some people laid down their lives for the country.
“At least two million people died during the civil war but, today, some people who were not born during the civil war are agitating for the division of the country. We will not let that happen.
“For Nigeria to divide now, it is better for all of us to jump into the sea and get drowned.”
