Ogun monarch begs FG to dialogue with secessioni­sts


A first class monarch in Ogun state, Oba Ebenezer Akintunde Akinyemi, has called on President Muhammad Buhari to dialogue with secessioni­sts rather than clamping down on them.

He argued that the use of force or military action on agitators would not work.

Oba Akinyemi, who is the Eselu of Iselu land in Yewa North Local Government Area of the state, insisted that, only dialogue with the agitators would prevent the emergence of more clamour for separation.

“If dialogue is adopted, it will definitely prevent more of Nnamdi Kanus from springing up in the South East and the country in general. I am also pleased to remind you sir that the peace we enjoy today in the Niger delta region is due to dialogue not war,” the monarch asserted.
