Ban­ning of IPOB, Wel­come De­vel­op­ment- North­ern Igbo

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - From Ab­dul­ga­niu Alabi, Kaduna

FOL­LOW­ING per­sis­tent calls on the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment by hu­man rights ac­tivists and south­east­ern gov­er­nors to with­draw mil­i­tary oper­a­tions, Op­er­a­tion Python Dance II in the re­gion, the leader of North­ern Tran­quil­ity Move­ment, Al­haji Muham­mad Ibrahim Gashash, has cau­tioned the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment not to bow to such pres­sure, say­ing that the IPOB ag­i­ta­tors are un­pre­dictable.

In a chat with The Guardian, Gashash said gov­ern­ment’s ac­tion of send­ing the army to the trou­bled area was jus­ti­fi­able, as the po­lice can­not han­dle the erup­tion of crises in the trou­bled re­gion.

He said that since IPOB ag­i­ta­tors have been la­beled as ter­ror­ist or­gan­i­sa­tion, they should be given BokoHaram treat­ment, say­ing; "Yes­ter­day, Igbo were all ter­ror­ized, and some of them have even left Kaduna, and that is what is called the side ef­fect of ter­ror­ism.
