The Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila has likened Biafra Republic and Oduduwa Republic Agitators to Boko Haram.
Femi who disclosed this during the House’s plenary on Wednesday, said where the two groups disrupt academic and economic activities, they are no different from the Islamic terror group that has killed over 100, 000 Nigerians since its inception.
“We must now add to these concerns an emerging threat that presents the same clear and present danger. In the South of Nigeria, East and West, miscreants and criminals masquerading as separationist activists have emerged to wreak havoc, take lives and commit economic sabotage against fellow Nigerians and the state.
“These people, in their inclination for devastating violence against fellow citizens, their appetite for the destruction of private property, their disruption of academic activities, commerce, and industry, their propensity for defiling institutions of the state, society, and community, their refusal to engage in debate, or to consider the possibility of dissenting opinions and alternative viewpoints, are no different from Boko Haram and ISWAP. Given space and time, they will take our nation down the same path of destruction,” Gbajabiamila said.
