His words: “The situation in the South-East is a mixture of reality, fake news and war propaganda.

“Are there rightful agitations in the South-East? Yes. Has it turned violent? Yes. It’s been hijacked.”

But he added: “In the South-East, we don’t want war, we don’t want to secede; we want to be a part of a fair Nigeria where justice, equity and freedom exist.

“I believe in dialogue, and that we can sit down to know and resolve our differences and strengthen our cooperation as a people.”
