The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir Lawal, has urged leaders in the South East geo-political zone to call Biafra agitators to order.

The SGF condemned the activities of the groups, saying they threaten the peace of the country.

Mr. Lawal spoke in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital, during a one-day working visit to the state.

Describing the groups as misguided youth who had been causing crisis in the country, the SGF said they should not be allowed to continue.

He said their actions create the impression that Nigeria is not one.

The SGF advised leaders in the South East to create employment opportunities for the youth to keep them busy to stop them from engaging in acts that threaten the peace of the nation.

“Some misguided youths in the South East zone are causing crisis in the country and I charge all Igbo leaders to rise to the occasion and call these misguided youths to order.

“These misguided youths create the impression that Nigeria is not one, and insecure,” he said.

Responding, the state governor, David Umahi, said he would ensure improved welfare of the people and rapid development of the state.
