The Governor of Anambra State, Charles Soludo has confirmed that his administration is offering “amnesty” to agitators in the State.
Soludo stated this during an interview with Channels Television on Sunday.
Over the last months, South-East States, including Anambra, have witnessed a spate of violent attacks and security operatives have borne the major brunt of the onslaught.
This is amid the weekly sit-at-home order on Monday, despite being suspended by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Soludo said: “Within the agitation movement, we have to agree that there are now factions. There is the one led by one guy in Finland called Simon Ekpa.
“IPOB has come out to accuse that group of being behind much of the criminality in the South-East.
“A lot of them in the bush out there are having camps here and there. They come out to kidnap and kill. Once we isolate all the groups that are not involved in this, then we can focus on the criminals.
“We have also offered them some kind of amnesty. Come out, give us your guns, we are prepared to give you training in whatever skills, even if we have to raise resources to empower you to become useful partners in the development of society.”
