The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahaman Dambazau, has urged Nigerians to be united in spite of agitations and violence by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
The Minister made the appeal at the Government House, Jos, while speaking with journalists shortly after he met with the governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong.
The minister met with Governor Simon Lalong and other security agencies in the state in a closed door meeting following ethnic clash in Jos which two persons were confirmed dead on Thursday.
Mr. Dambazau reiterated that Nigeria will not be divided despite uprising in the east.
“Nigeria will remain one in spite of the uprising by the IPOB.
“I can assure you that government is in total control.
“The presence of soldiers anywhere in the country was for the safety of citizens, urging citizens to cooperate with security agents to curtail violence.”
