"Nnamdi Kanu's Arrest Will Not End Biafra Agitation" - Babajide Reveals On Journalists' Hangout

Veteran journalist, Babajide Kolade Otitoju has revealed that the arrest of IPOB leader and commander, Maazi Nnamdi Kanu will not stop the Biafra agitation. According to the award-winning journalist on the daily Journalists' hangout show, the only way to stop the calls for secession isn't by imprisoning the leader of the movement but by providing the people with what they demand, which is security of lives and properties.

Babajide further heaped praises on the Chief of defence staff, General Lucky Irabor in the manner by which he has handled the situation. The CDS organized a meeting with ex security officers of the armed forces to rub minds on how to go about the state of insecurity in the South East as regards the incessant violent agitation by the IPOB members.

Although Babajide affirmed that demonstrations cannot be avoided as it's one of the components of democracy, he disagrees with the violent approach that's being adopted by the secessionists in driving home their points. The CDS has however promised to deal with them in the language they understand.
