Igbos should agitate for Biafra – Bishop Kukah

The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Archdiocese, Rev Mathew Kukah has said Nigerians in the South East agitating for the actualization of Biafra have the right to do so because in Nigeria, we are in a democracy, everyone has right for self
determination. 
Speaking with reporters on Saturday in Abuja, Kukah, however called for caution, saying the matter should be properly handled.
According to Kukah, “I think the question we should be asking is: what right do people have to express themselves?’ We are in a democracy and people should be allowed to express themselves because ours is a representative democracy.

“There are representatives and if people want to stop being a part of Nigeria there is a process for achieving that.

“The second point is that we cannot speculate as to intentions and motives unless you legitimately bring a person to court and say why have you done X Y Z? You can only speculate. And I don’t think we should be depending on speculations.
