Robberson also advised the youth to seek for more peaceful ways of airing their grievances, rather than resorting to dialogue.

Agitations by members of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB),have come under heavy criticism by many prominent Nigerians.

A group called Nigerian Women in Clergy, has also called on the Biafra agitators to sheath their swords and follow the path of dialogue.

The leader of the group,  Prophetess Nonnie Robberson, in a statement said  “I was conceived and born during the Biafran war, and it hurts me so much when I recall the pain my mother went through during the period. Reviving this agitation through street protests will further re-awaken the scars most of us have decided to leave behind; hence it’s time to shield the sword.”

“Even though the demand for self- determination appears to be within the United Nations charter provisions, the way we go about it will either make or mar our good intention. I will advise that we change our approach as we make our demands. “

The group also called for the immediate and unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu, the detained IPOB leader.
