Charles Soludo, the Governor of Anambra State, has stated that his administration is granting “amnesty” to the state’s agitators.
The Governor revealed this on Sunday during an interview with Channels Television.
According to reports, the South-East states, especially Anambra, have seen a surge in violent attacks in recent months, with security personnel bearing the brunt of the toll.
This comes amid the weekly sit-at-home directive on Monday, despite the Indigenous People of Biafra’s (IPOB) suspension of it.
“Within the agitation movement, we have to agree that there are now factions. There is the one led by one guy in Finland called Simon Ekpa.
IPOB has come out to accuse that group of being behind much of the criminality in the South-East.
A lot of them in the bush out there are having camps here and there. They come out to kidnap and kill. Once we isolate all the groups that are not involved in this, then we can focus on the criminals.
We have also offered them some kind of amnesty. Come out, give us your guns, we are prepared to give you training in whatever skills, even if we have to raise resources to empower you to become useful partners in the development of society.”
