Adamawa chapter of the National Igbo Cultural Association of Nigeria has condemned the secession plot by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The chapter’s President-General, Chief Fidelis Umeh, said this at a news conference on Saturday, June 5.
Basically, Umeh said violence won’t resolve Nigeria’s problems.
“Violence will never solve the country’s problems. “Let us live in peace and eschew bitterness,” he said.
Afterwards, Umeh expressed his condolences to the people of Adamawa for the death of Ahmed Gulak, the former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan who was killed in Imo on May 30.
“On behalf of the Igbo community, we offer our condolences to the government and people of Adamawa and to the family of the late Gulak.
It was shocking when we learned that Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, the former Speaker of the Adamawa State House of Assembly, had been killed in Imo State.
The Igbo community in Adamawa is not happy with what happened to Gulak.
“Most Igbos in the state are living and conducting their businesses peacefully,” said Umeh.
