The Ooni of Ile-Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi has said members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) should not be regarded as terrorists.
He said this on Friday when he paid a courtesy visit to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State.
“There is something that is bordering them; there is something that is making them to cry.
“We should not throw them away; we should draw them closer because the youth of this country are the future, the energy, they are the heartbeat of this country.
“We must chart the course of doing things with positive energy. I want to let you know that you are not alone in this.
“We stand by you positively in a very progressive manner. We stand by you; we all must come together to build a united Nigeria. We don’t want any war; we don’t want any disintegration,” He said.
