A South re-awakening group has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for what it described as a proactive approach to dislodging members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Chief Joseph Ambakederemo, the convener of the group, gave the commendation in a statement made available to on Sunday, September 17 in Warri, Delta state, Nigerian Tribune reports.
NAIJ.com gathered that he also slammed governors of the southeast, Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo and other leaders of the region for not calling agitators for the state of Biafra to order.
He said: ''We support wholeheartedly the President for the steps taken so far on the IPOB menace. We are talking of National security here, and when national security is at stake the liberty of any individual or the right of any group of persons takes the back seat.
''The President Buhari govt is proactive and the action taken so far is in line with what any well-meaning and sitting government would have done.
''The issue of national security should be devoid of politics, because the issue to safeguarding lives and property is the primary responsibility of any government.

''ln fact, the designation of the IPOB as a terrorist organization is long overdue. We have on record (tape) where the self-professed supreme leader of IPOB in a forum in the United States solicited for Arms and Ammunition to fight the Nigerian state.
''We are sure millions of Nigerians have seen even more damning recordings of the IPOB group, yet nothing was done by his people to denounce or proscribe the group. Nothing is more treasonable than what we have seen and heard as a people from Nnamdi Kanu''.
He urged government to also beam its searchlight on other such amorphous groups in all parts of the country and proscribe them or designate them terrorist groups if necessary.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that IPOB vowed to continue its agitation for the actualization of Biafra.
