Group advocates use of non-kinetic approach to end insecurity in S’East

A civil society group, Peace in the South-East Project, PISE-P, has said that it is engaging well-known Nigerians in its ongoing advocacy for the use of a non-kinetic approach to ending the prolonged security challenges in the zone.

The PISE-P Head of Media, Mrs Mary Ikoku, said this in a statement entitled “Tackling insecurity in South-East”, made available to newsmen in Umuahia on Thursday.

Ikoku stated that the group was conducting thorough advocacy among prominent South-Easterners and other Nigerians to quickly resolve the security crisis in the region “through peaceful dialogue”.

She explained that the group hoped the danger could be permanently resolved through a non-kinetic approach.

“The non-kinetic approach will take into cognisance the culture of the people, their behavioural pattern and we say ‘engage them in dialogue’.

“It will also help to ensure a better understanding of what their issues are and address them to bring back South-East to the glorious past of how it used to be,” she said.

She stressed that the group was convinced that insecurity in the zone was intensified by the Federal Government’s failure to respond to the grievances and concerns of the people of the region through dialogue.

“We blame the problem on the lack of appropriate Federal Government’s response to the popular grievances raised by individuals and groups from the region,” the statement added.

She, therefore, emphasized the need to adopt dialogue between the state and non-state actors to end the conflict.
