Ohanaeze Ndigbo has said that the decision of the Federal Government to send the military to the South-East to stop agitations by the Independent Peoples of Biafra will not stop further agitations in the country.

It particularly said the decision of the Nigerian Army to commence Operation Python Dance in the region, at this point in time, was regrettable.



It, therefore, called for immediate termination of the exercise.

Ohanaeze stated this in a statement, which was signed by its President-General, Chief John Nwodo in Abuja on Sunday.

He said this was part of the decisions reached at the meeting of the group, which was held in Enugu on Saturday night.

He said while the organisation would not tolerate any form of violence, it nevertheless called for the withdrawal of the military from the zone.
He said that the police should rather be drafted to replace the army.

Nwodo, a former minister of information said “the military option is never a solution to the problem of nation-building.

“We refer for instance to the goings on in Spain, Scotland and other parts of the world to reaffirm that only through dialogue can the national question be resolved. Consequently, we condemn all acts of violence in pursuance of freedom of expression. “
