The National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-Agitators (NCNDE-A), has urged the Federal Government to ensure that those propagating hate speech in the country were arrested and brought to justice.
In a terse statement signed by the coalition’s National President, Eshanekpe Israel, he said the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, had flouted his bail conditions; and “to let him off the hook could set a bad precedent in the nation.”
“Kanu should not be allowed to plunge the country into civil war,” he said.
He said that the silence of human right activists on Kanu’s comments was becoming worrisome.
Israel also noted that though the President’s medical trip abroad elicited criticisms and negative comments from the opposition, his speech could not have been better delivered especially on hate speech.
He further called on human right activists and other well-meaning Nigerians to support the Buhari-led administration in its fight against corruption.
“The fight against corruption was critical to enable the administration succeed in delivering democratic dividends to the people,” he said.
