BREAKING! South Eastern Governors Forum bans IPOB activities in the region after Emergency Meeting

The South-East Governors Forum has banned all activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB in the Southeast region.

The forum rose from its emergency security meeting held today at Enugu State government House,  to announce the ban.
Reading out a ten-point communique reached at the end of the meeting, the Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Ebonyi state, Engr Dave Umahi said they are committed to taking strategic steps towards realizing the restructuring agitations in the country.
The forum further appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately
withdraw the Military troupes deployed to the SouthEast region so as to douse the tension already created in the polity, assuring that they will follow up ongoing investigation into allegations of killings and torture by the Military.

Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo who had a chat with Newsweek, said Pres. Buhari must meet with Nnamdi Kanu, before the ongoing crisis gets out of hand.
Obasanjo said: “I don’t see anything wrong in that [Buhari meeting with Kanu]. I would not object to that; if anything, I would encourage it.” .
“I would want to meet Kanu myself and talk to people like him, people of his age, and ask ‘What are your worries?’ .
Not only from the southeast but from all parts of Nigeria.” He said the army’s “heavy boot” response to pro-Biafra sentiment is “not the solution” but adds that the secession craved by IPOB is not the way forward either. .
“We need to satisfy the youth in job creation, in wealth creation, in giving them a better, fulfilled life, in giving them hope for the future. There’s no easy way out,” he said.
