Apostle Johnson Suleman, the Senior pastor and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministry has advised Nigerians from the East to put an end to the agitation for the Republic of Biafra.

Speaking at the weekend, the cleric stated that "Biafra is dead and buried" adding that the Igbos should seek relevance and not creation of a nation.

“The Igbo cannot even rule themselves, they should go and sit down. There is IPOB, MASSOB, you can see that they are already having division. You have not been able to rule yourselves and you want to rule a nation, it’s not possible.

“They should forget this agenda and seek relevance and not creation of a nation. It’s now a mind-set. It’s not achievable because the real people who would have fought for Biafra are no longer in existence,"  he said.

Speaking on the attacks by Fulani herdsmen on communities in the country, Apostle Suleman noted that the sponsors will soon be exposed.

 “There is nothing like Fulani herdsmen, it’s all fake. Those behind it will soon be exposed. In the first place, who armed them? AK-47… look at Boko Haram, it’s not yet over.

“What they want to achieve is to put the nation under siege, place Nigeria under the Northern fear. There are people behind them.

“Now, people were killed in Enugu, Aba, who was prosecuted? When the president was told, he said we shouldn't worry that in 15 months, all these will be over. So the Northerners are free to kill and kill till then? That was the response of a leader.

“Nigerians walk on pillars. Abroad, their strength is their right but in Nigeria, our strength is the godfather. Everything happening is political,”  he stated.
