The National Igbo Cultural Association of Nigeria, Adamawa chapter, has condemned the secession plot by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The President-General of the chapter, Chief Fidelis Umeh, stated this at a news conference on Saturday, June 5 in Yola, the Adamawa state capital.
Umeh, who slammed the activities of IPOB, said “Violence will never solve problem of the country. Let us learn to live in peace and eschew bitterness.”
Umeh condoled with the people of Adamawa over the death Ahmed Gulak, the former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, who was killed in Imo on May 30.
“On behalf of the Igbo community, we condole with the government and people of Adamawa, and family of late Gulak.
“It was shocking, when we heard that Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, the former Speaker of Adamawa State House of Assembly, was killed in Imo state; his death really pained us.
“We, the Igbo community in Adamawa are not happy with what happened to Gulak.’’
Umeh added that no one has threatened the lives of Igbo people in the state since the killing of Gulak, adding “we are living and conducting our businesses peacefully’’.
