Meanwhile, if urgent decision is not taking against Agu's action for putting on an outfit which market proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, many people who believe in Biafra agenda may put on the regalia and walk free in society whereas such action threaten the peace and unity of the country. The proscribed group have claimed responsibility some of the attack in the South East region.

Sadly, South East region is the biggest loser of agitations carried out by Biafra group. To avoid further loss, anyone who violates or act contrary to the law of the land like Mr. Chiwetanu Agu did should be arrested and prosecuted to sustain peace. Peace is necessary in the South East to restore normalcy.

Another reason why Mr. Agu should be rearrested and prosecuted is to let him know that no one is above the law. He passed a wrong message to people he shared bread for with Biafra regalia. Once he is rearrested and prosecuted accordingly, others that have heinous move to do similar thing will desist from the act.

Rearresting him will no doubt send a warning message to agitators in the South East region. Rearresting and prosecuting Agu is a sure way to win insecurity in the South East region.

Anambra, Imo States have been grossly affected by the activities of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB.
