The presidency has pleaded with the international community to disregard calls by the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to provide Special security for Christians in Nigeria.
The disclosed statement by Garba Shehu indicted the separatist group of struggling to discredit the Nigerian government internationally, particularly in the U.S, UK, and Europe.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) wants an autonomous country of Biafra, made up of the Igbo-speaking part of Nigeria, mostly in the South-eastern fraction of the country.
In a statement Sunday by President Muhammadu Buhari’s representative, Garba Shehu, he accused IPOB of waging a smear push to implicate the Nigerian government of facilitating the persecution of Christians.
The group was banned in Nigeria after the federal government accused it of terrorism, although most of its programmes and grievances have been largely friendly and peaceful.
The administration has also clamped down aggressively and violently members of IPOB with some of the attacks by rights groups including Amnesty International.Scannews24.com
