The Founder and General Overseer of Friends of Jesus Global Mission, Owerri, Bishop Maglorious Enyioha, has described Nnamdi Kanu, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as a young man who can hardly control his temper.
Addressing a press conference in Owerri, the Imo State capital, over the weekend, Enyioha called on the Federal Government to take a critical look into the issues raised by the secessionist leader.
The clergyman advised the Federal Government to adopt a more humane and practical approach to the growing agitation for Biafra, rather than the use of force.
His words: “The Python Dance, initiated and executed by the Nigerian Army, has become history. People died in the process but the agitation has remained. This calls for a more humane and practical approach than the use of force.
“The leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, is a young man that can hardly control his temper.
“Although Kanu may have spoken in some areas like a youth, government should, however, look critically into what he is saying.”
Speaking further, the Bishop also lamented that Nigeria has never known peace since its creation.
He added that: “We cannot allow this to continue ad infinitum. If we don’t want shedding of blood to continue, we should sit down and talk. Any land where innocent blood is carelessly shed is cursed.
“Those who provide weapons to Nigeria are only asking us to kill our fellow Nigerians. They should instead, help us to conduct a referendum in Nigeria, instead of continuously supplying us arms and ammunition,” Enyioha said.
