In a broadcast on Monday, Buhari said that the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu agreed with him on the need for the country to continue existing as one. He said it as he stressed that Nigeria's unity is not negotiable.

When many people who questioned the statement demanded for a proof, the President took to his Twitter page to post the photos. It would be recalled that Odumegwu-Ojukwu, then as a Lieutenant Colonel, led the agitation for the creation of Biafra Republic. This led to a three-year Civil War between 1967 and 1970 in which several Nigerians were killed.

But Buhari in his speech on Monday said Odumegwu-Ojukwu at a meeting over two days and which lasted late into the night in his hometown, Daura in Katsina State, agreed that there was the need to keep Nigeria one.

The President thus advised those fanning the embers of disunity to purge themselves of the tendency or face the wrath of the law.

"In 2003 after I joined partisan politics, the late Chief Emeka Ojukwu came and stayed as my guest in my hometown Daura. Over two days we discussed in great depth till late into the night and analyzed the problems of Nigeria. We both came to the conclusion that the country must remain one and united.

Nigeria’s unity is settled and not negotiable. We shall not allow irresponsible elements to start trouble and when things get bad they run away and saddle others with the responsibility of bringing back order, if necessary with their blood." the President said in his speech.
