Former Senator and Chieftain in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Ken Nnamani has warned secessionist agitators in the Southeast to drop their arms and pursue peace because war is not the solution.
Nnamani, who made this statement during an interview on Tuesday in Lagos, insisted that it will be better for the Igbo race to remain and achieve more in Nigeria than anywhere else. According to him, people who declare war are usually the first to be wiped out, adding that secessionist agitators like the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) would not last up to two weeks if a full-scale war breaks out.

He, however, noted that if Nigeria is properly organized and there is justice and equity, Igbos will thrive in every area of life. He went further to say that the people of the Southeast stood to gain the most if there is peace in the country, urging them to sheath their swords to seek peace and unity.
"The Igbos stand to benefit the most if there is peace. Without boasting, there is no place you would not find Igbos. Go to Banana Island and Victoria Island in Lagos. Many of the skyscrapers are owned by Igbos. In Abuja, three-quarters of the hotels are owned by Igbos.
These investments cannot be moved. Turning guns against ourselves is not the solution, it is not a party where you sit and drink".
