A former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Tsav, has lashed out at the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, saying he must be having psychiatric problems to have included Benue in Biafra map.
Tsav, among other prominent sons of the state warned the IPOB leader to steer clear of the state.
Kanu had recently claimed that while he was in detention, Federal Government offered to secede five Igbo states but that he rejected the offer because it did not include Benue and Rivers States respectively.
While addressing leaders of an Igbo civil society coalition, Kanu had said, “They gave me Biafra in prison with only the five Igbo states; I said no, I want Benue and Rivers states inclusive.”
Reacting to the statement, Tsav described Kanu as a jester.
According to Tsav, “I think the man, Kanu, has some mental problems. What is the connection between the Tivs, the Idoma and the Igbo? I think the man needs to see a psychiatric doctor because something is wrong with him.
“He is not well because nothing connects the Tivs, the Idoma to the Igbo. How can he say he wants Benue State to be part of Biafra?
“He should stay where he is and carry on with his madness. We are not ready to be part and parcel of his madness”
