Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal, has called on Igbo leaders to call Biafra agitators to order now.
The SGF in a visit to Ebonyi State condemned the activities of the groups, saying they threaten the peace of the country.
He wondered why the leaders of the South East have been unable to call the youths whom he described as misguided youth who had been causing crisis in the country and they cannot be allowed to continue.
He said their actions create the impression that Nigeria is not one.
The SGF advised leaders in the South East to create employment opportunities for the youth to keep them busy to stop them from engaging in acts that threaten the peace of the nation.
“Some misguided youths in the South East zone are causing crisis in the country and I charge all Igbo leaders to rise to the occasion and call these misguided youths to order.
“These misguided youths create the impression that Nigeria is not one, and insecure,” he said.
