Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to consider negotiating with members of the Indigenous People of Biafra.
The cleric said this would bring peace to the country adding that “the government should try to be frank and engage even with IPOB’s people. Government should call them ‘you come and sit down, let’s talk, what is your problem?
“Government should call them for a dialogue; see, nobody doubts Nigeria. The problem is that the government is not being considerate even with these herdsmen.”
Recall that former presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, had also recently called on the Federal Government to discuss with IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu and other secessionists in the country.
FirstNews had reported that various groups in the country are currently calling for the independence of their regions from Nigeria.
