NAIJ.com recalls that the acting president has been holding series of meetings with leaders of thought from both the northern and eastern parts of the country following the tension generated by a quit notice issued to Igbos living in the north.

Osinbajo on June 18, held a consultative meeting with traditional rulers from the south-east at the Presidential Banquet Hall, Abuja, where he warned that those agitating for secession and the northern groups that issued ultimatum to Igbos risked jail terms as they violated Nigeria’s laws.
