Soludo had called for dialogue with the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and other aggrieved groups in addressing the agitations in the South-East.

The Governor, who made the call during a programme on Channels Television, Sunday Politics, said noting favourable can be achieved through the use of force.

“A time comes when you realise that you cannot shoot an ideology with a gun. When you see it exclusively as a law enforcement matter, then you miss the point.

“We got to engage them; we got to engage everyone to really understand the root of this,” Soludo had explained.
