Amidst the heightened tension in Nigeria, a group identified as the Buhari support group said it has uncovered plots by some opposition members to raise militia groups to unleash terrors in some volatile Southern States.
The National Secretary of the group, Nonso Ezedinma, who disclosed this while speaking in Abuja, said the group has a list of some political influencers, Governors, youth organizations and organizations behind the planned terrors.
According to Ezedinma, the group has forwarded their names to security agencies for necessary action to avert the planned attacks. The Buhari support group gave the sponsors of the militia groups till the end of May to disband or face mass action.
Meanwhile, Ezedinma said the group also has classified information on plans by the opposition to politicizing the security situation in the country to create chaos and score cheap political goals.
