The Indigenous People of Biafra clamouring for secession has been described by President Muhammadu Buhari as a dot in a circle that has nowhere to go.

President Buhari stated this on Thursday during an interview with Arise TV.

He said, “That IPOB is just like a dot in a circle. Even if they want to exit, they will have no access to anywhere.”

“And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses and properties, I don’t think IPOB knows what they are talking about.”

“In any case, we say we’ll talk to them in the language that they understand. We’ll organise the police and the military to pursue them.”

According to the president, youths and the aged in the south-south part of Nigeria have promised him that their region has no intention of seceding.

He said IPOB will not have “access to anywhere” even if they eventually secede from the country.

The President then reiterated his statement that IPOB members will be treated in the “language that they understand”.

“I was encouraged by what I heard, nobody told me. Two statements from the south-south. One by the elderly people, they said this time around there would be no (secession). And again the youth made the same statement; such encouragement,” Buhari said.
