He added that those making derogatory comments about the South-East in respect to Nnamdi Kanu's rearrest should stop it. He stressed on the fact that such comments are capable of jeopardising with the already existing peace enjoyed by Nigerians.

“It is unnecessary for any person occupying a position of trust to spark off another security tension now that the masses are coming out from similar challenges a few months ago.", he said.

Senator Anyanwu also advised other geopolitical zone of the federation to respect the South-East.
