    3. You should be preaching peace at this stage of things, not stoking fire of cowardice. This was part of what the south-east governors should have done before the agitation got to this stage of confrontation.

  4. These governors are no more animals in the zoo. They just sold future of Igo people for a pot of porridge. Believe me, it won't end there. Agitation for self determination is their right, which they are being denied.
    By the way, where are Oduduwa people? Now is the time to press for their own demand.

    1. Please leave Oduduwa people out of your madness. Yorubas agitate with intelligence and rule of law. It may look torturous and slow, but, achievable in the end.

  7. The army has no right to declare a group militant for no reason in a country like ours. It is the function of the court. Secondly the function of the army is not event internal security but external. The that is unanswered is why are they deceiving themselves.

  9. The governors and igbo leadership are just waking up to their responsibilities. The excesses of this deluded young man and his hoard of uninformed young followers should have been caged long before now. Left unchecked, they are bound to trow their tribe into a disastrous partway.
