The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari for throwing frequent jibes on Biafra agitators as a means of diverting attention from critical issues of governance facing the nation.

Speaking through its counsel Mr Amobi Nzelu, the group slammed the President focusing on the Biafra movement rather than solve the nation’s  economic recession, Boko Haram insurgency, large scale unemployment.

“The president is trying to bring the issue of Biafra to the front burner at the expense of what is going on economically in this country; it’s not worth it.

“People are dying. The issue of Biafra is diversionary; let him address the serious issues of Nigeria. If they say they want referendum so be it; test it out.

“It is the treatment that made them to ask for certain things they ask for; treat them equally and this matter will end. That is why I said it requires constructive dialogue,” Nzelu.

The lawyer said there was nothing wrong in allowing a referendum so long as “the condition that gave rise to the agitation was yet to be addressed.

Meanwhile, the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) has defendthe arrest of some supreme court and federal high court judges by operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS).
