Frmr President, Jonathan urges Buhari to hold council of state meeting to resolve lingering crisis between security agencies and separatists group.

former President, GOODLUCK JONATHAN, has weighed in on the escalating crisis between the Nigerian security agencies and separatist elements in the South-east with a call for President MUHAMMADU BUHARI to convene a Council of State meeting.

Separatist tensions flared across the region this week, with Abia State, the epicentre of secession agitations, declaring an extended curfew in major towns; while postponing resumption of primary and secondary school students.

In a Facebook post, JONATHAN observed that the unrest could mushroom into a full-blown conflict if not immediately checked by the country’s leaders.

The former president’s appeal came after the Nigerian military proclaimed the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, a terrorist organisation, a controversial move that capped a week of renewed ethnic and tribal skirmishes.
