The son of Nasir El-Rufai, the Kaduna State governor, Bashir El-Rufai has stated that most people in the South-East part of the country do not approve of the calls for secession from Nigeria.

According to him, members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have been spearheading the call for the region to secede from Nigeria.

"No reasonable person from the SE would condone violence, neither do the majority want any secession.

"The ones in my life & I've had the pleasure of interacting with (off social media) only want a conducive economic environment and Insha Allah all this violence shall come to an end," he tweeted.
