The Nigerian presidency has warned those agitating for a breakaway Biafra republic to have a rethink, saying the federal government would not fold its hands and allow anyone plunge the country into crisis.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who gave the warning on Saturday, in Jos, said government would not watch while some individuals and groups create unnecessary tension in the country in the guise of seeking to break away from Nigeria.

“We need to build the civic capacity to defeat the false and dangerous premises and assumption of violence extremism. Never again should we allow mindless violence inspired by false and evil precepts to threaten our national security,” Mr. Osinbajo said.

“Let me again call on persons or group in the country who have some grievance or disaffection to submit to peaceful and democratic means of expressing themselves.”
