Biafrans not terrorists, but want to be heard — CAN President
Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of Nigeria Supreme Council on Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, yesterday warned against any injustice in appointments and allocation of resources in the country, saying such actions are capable of breeding crisis and disunity in the society.

He also insisted that Biafrans are not terrorists but people who want to be heard over marginalization they were facing.
The declarations of the Sultan and the CAN leader drew support from Yoruba socio-cultural and political organization, Afenifere, and Second Republic lawmaker, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, who noted that the duo captured in essence what is currently going on in the country
The Sultan and the CAN President spoke in their goodwill messages delivered at the opening ceremony of a Collaborative Interfaith Peace and Security Capacity Building Workshop, organized by the Nigerian Army Resource Centre, NARC, in collaboration with Inter-Religious Peace Initiative in Abuja.
IPOB faults Financial Times of London on Biafra
THE Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has dismissed as unprofessional and misleading, the report of Financial Times of London on the activities of the group and the forthcoming general elections.
The leadership of Nnamdi Kanu-led group said the Financial Times report went “contrary to the ethics of investigative professional journalism expected of them” especially “the current misleading headline on IPOB, entitled: “Echoes of Biafra war as Nigeria looks to polls.”
It said: ‘’This unprofessional conduct calls for holistic review on the part of the proprietors of the Financial Times. It is our position that had a reputable media organisation like Financial Times embarked on investigating their sources of information before hand, they would have been well-informed of the fact that IPOB is non-violent in their quest for restoration of Biafra.
