Gbajabiamila likened self-determination agitators to ISWAP/Boko Haram terrorists

The Honourable Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said the separatist groups in the southern part of Nigeria are not different from the Boko Haram and ISWAP insurgents in northeastern region of the country.

The Speaker said hoodlums who are disguising as separatist groups hardly have any tolerance for diverging opinions or views. As a result of this, he said they were not different from the daredevil insurgent groups in the Northeast.

His words:"In the South of Nigeria,East and West, miscreants and criminals masquerading as separatist activists have emerged to wreak havoc, take lives and commit economic sabotage against fellow Nigerians and against the State.Their refusal to engage in debate or to consider the possibility of dissenting opinions and alternative viewpoints, are not different from Boko Haram or ISWAP".

He therefore said Federal Government must add all separatist groups in the South to list of concerns, stressing that the country will deploy all available resources in the fight against insecurity and bring it to an end.

What is your own view about the assertion of the Speaker?
