Truetells Nigeria reports that the Chairman Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa has warned that the federal government is ready to go to war with the southeast if the region wants to separate from Nigeria again.
Speaking on Channels TV, Senator Bulkachuwa warned that the government would not bow to ‘insurgents’ in the South East.
The top APC lawmaker warned that the Muhammadu Buhari-led government would fight those who wants to break up the country and give them what they want.
Adamu said: “There are people who feel democracy is not good enough for them and they want to devise their own means of belonging to this entity called Nigeria and if they don’t have their wish, they’ll let Nigeria go to pieces.
“So is that anything that the constitution allows or encourages? So they’re absolutely outside the realm of the constitution.
“They’re just rebels, arsonists and criminals in short. So, what are we going to consider to even give them a chance to come and say their wish and let Nigeria tremble and bow before them and say ‘okay, we’ve granted you your wish.’
“Those insurgency in the Southeast, they’re all claiming that they want their own country called Biafra right? If that is the case, is it by killing people that they’ll get their country?
“They’ve tried it before, do they want us to go back to the same route? I don’t think so. But if they do, if that’s what they choose, has Nigeria got any choice?
“Will we just allow them, bow and say, ‘we’ll grant you your own wish?’ No. Nigerian government has to stand out, fight them and give them what they want.”
