Governor Masari rallies support for military operation

The Governor said this while speaking with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa on Friday, September 15, 2017.

The Governor also said that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), if allowed, will plunge the country in chaos.

Masari also said that IPOB must be checked so it does not spiral out of control like the dreaded terror sect, Boko Haram.

Masari also said “On the general note on what is going on in the country, I think there is need for Nigerians to be very responsible in terms of dealing with issues of this kind in this country.

“When the problem of Boko Haram started in the country, we looked the other way and it nearly consumed the nation. So, under these circumstances any agitation that is likely to lead the nation to the kind of problem we had, I think all Nigerians should support the government and put a stop to it.”

Meanwhile the Defence Headquarters has announced that IPOB will henceforth be treated as a terror group.
