During an interview with Arise TV on Thursday, Buhari said IPOB has no where to go because Igbo people have too much investment across the country.
“That IPOB is just like a dot in a circle. Even if they want to exit, they will have no access to anywhere.
“And the way they are spread all over the country, having businesses and property, I don’t think IPOB knows what they are talking about.
“In any case, we say we’ll talk to them in the language that they understand. We’ll organise the police and the military to pursue them.”
Buhari also claimed he has been assured by, “the elderly people” and “the youths” from the South-South region, that they have no intention of seceding.
“I was encouraged by what I heard, nobody told me. Two statements from the south south: one by the elderly people, they said this time around there would be no (secession). And again the youth made the same statement; such encouragement,” Buhari said.
President Buhari insisted that IPOB will not have “access to anywhere” even if they eventually secede from the country.
Meanwhile, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu has threatened that his group will avenge the death of any Biafran killed with the heads of their killers.
