We will pursue IPOB until we catch them —Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his administration will pursue members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) until they are caught.
President Buhari said this during an interview with Arise TV on Thursday.
After taking analysis of the properties and investments of Igbo people across the country, the president said that IPOB members “don’t know what they are talking about”.
He said IPOB should drop the idea of secession otherwise, he reiterated, ‘he will speak to them in the language they understand’.
He vowed to unleash the Police and Army operatives against the agitators until he catches up with them.
His words: “IPOB are just like a dot in a circle. If they want to exist they won’t have access to anywhere.
“And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses, having properties, I think IPOB doesn’t know what they are talking about.
“In any case, we say we will talk to them in a language they understand.
“We will organise the police and the military to pursue them. That’s what we can do and we will do it.”
He, however, did not give any concise answer when asked to, as a father of the nation, to give the Igbos a sense of belonging to encourage them to drop the marginalisation sentiment growing in several quarters.
