Former Chief Security Officer to the late Head of State, General Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, has said that some unnamed people were investing heavily on the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, so as to split Nigeria.
The former CSO said security agencies were already working towards exposing such persons.
He said ; “My understanding is that certain people are investing in these problems to promote themselves, but very soon the government would realize it.
“But our security agencies are doing a lot to identity them.
“Any call to divide Nigeria is unacceptable. I have been playing a role to ensure a united Nigeria. I have been criss-crossing the North and the South-East, and to all parties concerned, soliciting for peace.
“I was recently in Owerri to sign a peace accord with some associations and the North.
“If Arewa youths had addressed IPOB as a group or their leader Nnamdi Kanu as an individual, it would have been a fair- deal, but asking millions of Igbo that reside in the North to quit is not acceptable by law and the provisions of our Constitution.
“We have spoken to the Northern Leaders Forum as well as Ralph Uwazuruike because Nnamdi Kanu was his boy, he brought him up to be in the Radio House in London.
“The people creating tension in Nigeria are behind Kanu. What he is doing may not necessarily be to create tension but those behind him are investing in the tension to divide us as a nation.”
