Former Deputy President of the , Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has stated that one of the worst things that could happen to the Igbo people at this time was to allow their homeland to be turned into a theatre of war.

Ekweremadu blamed the agitations by various parts of the country on a flawed federal system, injustice, and poor management of the nation’s diversity.

He, however, insisted that violent agitation was not the answer.

The lawmaker spoke in a lecture, entitled “The Igbo in Diaspora: A Perspective”, that he delivered virtually at the Igbo Heritage Lectures and Ugwumba Excellence Award event, which held in Pretoria, South Africa, Sunday evening, according to a statement by his media aide, Uche Anichukwu.

He expressed concern that violent agitations and the sit-at-home order by the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of (IPOB) has wasted many lives and battered the South East economy.
