United States Calls For End To Violence In Nigeria (Read Details)

Amid growing tension in the country, the United States Mission to Nigeria on Friday, September 15, called for end to violence in the country.

The United States made this known in a tweet on Friday.

The US Mission to Nigeria said that it is joining well-meaning Nigerians to sue for peace, calling for an end to violence in the country.

The tweet read: “The U.S. Mission to Nigeria joins the calls of Nigerian leaders and citizens across the country for an end to violence. #OutofManyOne”.

The message from the US Mission comes after southeast governors held an emergency meeting in Enugu to address issues of security in the zone.

The governors subsequently banned activities of the IPOB group.

The Nigerian army is currently carrying out Operation Python Dance in the Southeast with the aim of ridding the region of criminals and other activities threatening the security of the area.

The deployment of the troops had led to clashes between members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the army in Abia state.

Lives have been reportedly lost in the process.

According to reports, the group made its comments in a statement signed on Thursday, September 14, by its publicity secretary, Yinka Oguntimehin.

Describing the campaign as an “obvious attempt to arrest the growing influence of the Nnamdi Kanu led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB),” the group stated that instead of employing military tactics to address the IPOB issue, the federal government should rather engage in dialogue with the pro-Biafra group.
