The Libyan people are still suffering because Western powers continue to fuel the ongoing conflict there, the cousin of slain leader Muammar Gaddafi has said on the sixth anniversary of the Arab Spring, adding that the West should apologize and leave Libya alone.

It has come to the attention of the Benue State government that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu made some reckless and misleading comments about the good people of Benue State. In the Vanguard Newspaper of July 20, 2017, the IPOB leader claimed that the Federal Governmentoffered him Biafra comprising the 5 South Eastern States when he was in prison but he rejected the offer along with an oil block and a mansion in Dubai all in a bid to induce him to abandon his secessionist movement.
He was reported to have made the wild and unsubstantiated allegation while playing host to a coalition of Igbo Civil Society Coalition led by Prof. Obasi Igwe who paid him a solidarity visit recently at his Umuahia home. Kanu claimed that he turned down the offer as he wanted Benue and a South-South State included in Biafra.
We completely and strongly reject his mischievous claim that Benue is part of Biafra. Benue State is not part of any secessionist bid to dismember our great country Nigeria.
The Benue State government and its people are committed to the unity, peace and progress of Nigeria under the purposeful leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo. The administration of Samuel Ortom would never subscribe to any ulterior and ill-advised agitation to undermine the unity and security of our country. There are lawful laid down procedures for people, groups or any legally recognized organisation to advance their interests and draw attention to their demands in a peaceful manner. Continue reading
