"IPOB And Yoruba Nation Agitators Are Not Different From Boko Haram Terrorists" - Gbajabiamila

The Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila has once again broken his silence. This time around, he likened the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra and the agitation for the self determination of the Yoruba Nation in the South-West of the Yoruba Nation in the South-West to those of the Boko Haram and the Islamic State West Africa Province terrorists group."Femi Gbajabiamila |Google|"

While addressing the Plenary at the Green Chamber on Wednesday, Gbajabiamila alleged that the miscreants in the South East and South West's zone parading themselves as separatists have emerged to wreak havoc in the country.

He said, “These people, in their inclination for devastating violence against fellow citizens, their appetite for the destruction of private property, their disruption of academic activities, commerce, and industry, their propensity for defiling institutions of the state, society, and community, their refusal to engage in debate, or to consider the possibility of dissenting opinions and alternative viewpoints, are no different from Boko Haram and ISWAP. Given space and time, they will take our nation down the same path of destruction,” he added.

This Reaction from Femi Gbajabiamila is out of place and too rash. Comparing peaceful agitators to Boko Haram insurgents is not right at all. We all know that Boko Haram terrorists are killers and kidnappers but none of these set of agitators are like that.

Nonetheless, judging by the latest turn of events in the country at the moment, both Biafra and Yoruba Nation Agitators should let go of their agitations and embrace a united Nigeria.
