The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah on Monday, October 5, noted that the agitation for the actualization of a Biafra state was as a clear reflection of bad leadership in Nigeria.
Kukah further stated that the formation of various militant groups in different regions as well as the Boko Haram terrorist group were all consequences of the corruption in the country.
Kukah spoke during an interview with newsmen at the weekend in Abuja.
“Before Biafra , there were Odua’ Peoples’ Congress and the Niger Delta Militants, all before Boko Haram and the Islamists.
“So, Biafra is a consequence of the corruption of the Nigerian state. These youth groups are expressions of the frustrations that face their generation.
“They are not the problems and they are not the ones on the dock: The accused is the Nigerian state!”, he said.
