There will be no Biafra under me - Buhari

10 May 2016, 07:30

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has declared that he will crush all agitation for the division of Nigeria, Sun News Online reports.

While paying a visit to his hometown of Daura, Buhari reflected on the civil war that had previously claimed over 2 million lives in the country, stating that unity was fought for through the shedding of Nigerian blood.

Criticizing efforts made by agitation groups such as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Buhari warned that it would be better for the whole country to commit mass murder than to allow Biafrans to succeed in their plans of seperation.

“For Nigeria to divide now, it is better for all of us to jump into the sea and get drowned,” Buhari said.

IPOB had previously issued a threat to Buhari in response to his previous anti-Biafra sentiments, declaring that they would restore Biafra or die in the process.

"We, the IPOB Worldwide have decided not to go back on the quest for restoration of Biafra. Nigeria is not bigger than USSR just as Buhari is not stronger than Michael Gobachev. Buhari can kill Biafrans as he did during the 1967 to 1970 civil war, but this time, it will not be the same," News24 reported the group as saying.
