A cleric, Bishop Sunday Onuoha, has urged people in the South East to eschew violence and embrace peace.
He made the call on Wednesday in Abuja amid violence rocking the region following the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Bishiop Onuoha, who is a co-chairman of the Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace (IDFP) and board member, Global Peace Foundation (GPF), warned that retaliation and continuous violence in parts of the South East is an ill wind that blows no good.
He said, “The leaders of IPOB must see the pain on the faces of our people and be willing to forgive anyone they feel have offended them. The state actors should also look for a way of forgiving the agitators and treat everyone as members of the same family who have their ways of expressing themselves in protest to perceived injustice.”
