A civil society group has called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the federal government to express genuine concern on the agitation for secession in various region of Nigeria.
The group, Federalist Movement of Nigeria (FMN), said attention should be giving to those using appropriate channels to champion the calls for restructuring.
In a statement released on Wednesday, September 27, the convener of the group, Emmanuel Ogah said some criminals are hiding under marginalization to disrupt the peace and unity of Nigeria.
Ogah alleged that some members of the already proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have started migrating to other separatist groups to continue their agitation for Biafra.
He also alleged that a group Biafra Zionists Federation (BZF) led by one Benjamin Onwuka have begin to entice members of the IPOB to defect to his group.

Ogah said:"Onwuka, speaking as BZF leader, is calling for attacks on the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) - Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai and the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, including threatening them with trial at the International Criminal Court on a shallow basis.
“Onwuka, who clearly forgot that only those who have wronged the people will go to prison, must be reminded that history would acknowledge Alhaji Lai Mohammed and General Buratai as heroes especially in the way they discharged their sacred responsibility of upholding good governance in Nigeria and by extension in Africa.
“Much as Onwuka's BZF and other miscreants are angry that the Nigerian Army has tamed them and prevented them from continuing to unleash mayhem on innocent citizens or to continue their regime of criminality, they must realize that no country gives free passes to terrorists, extremists, secessionists and separatists to oppress the law-abiding populations.
“Onwuka, BZF, and other separatists have the penchant for peggiing their ill-conceived demand on the notion that they can get other nations to interfere in the affairs of Nigeria.
.
“This rabble must therefore be schooled to understand that responsible leaders deal head on with criminality irrespective of the barrage of propaganda and sponsored outcry by criminals and their backers.
“The United States under President Donald Trump banned nationals of eight countries from gaining access to that country; on September 27, 2017 eleven people were arrested across England and Wales as part of investigation United Kingdom's banned extreme right-wing group, National Action, which is just one of the many banned groups in that country.
“We recommend the words of Detective Chief Superintendent Martin Snowden, the head of counter-terrorism policing in North East England, to the Federal Government, Biafra separatists and terrorists alike,"Ogah said.
He further called on the Nigerian government and the military to be weary of these individuals and their groups to avoid a breakdown of law and other.
.
He called for the channeling of calls for restructuring through the right process as provided by the constitution.
.
Kanu made the claim through the deputy leader of the group, Uche Mefor.
Mefor said the proscription of the IPOB is an assault on their human dignity, rights and complete but gradual annihilation of their very existence.
