A northern group, North-East Unity Forum has threatened to join their counterpart, Arewa youth forum in pushing Igbo people out of the North if Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB does not stop their campaigns for Biafran nation.
The group made the call at a Press Conference held at the Late Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Tomb in Bauchi yesterday.
The chairman of the group, Comrade Alkasim Nuhu Abdulkadir, cautioned the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, against continuous alleged inflammatory statements against northern Nigeria and its people.
In a statement obtained by Dailytrust, the group said, IPOB must stop its unguarded and inflammatory words or the forum will have no choice than to join the Patriotic Coalition of Northern Groups in the call for the Igbo to leave the north on October 1st.
“We advise Kanu and his rowdy crowd to desist from making further inflammatory remarks against our people and our leaders. If Nnamdi Kanu, does not stop his Biafran campaigns and his continuous derogatory statements, we, the North East Unity Forum, will have no choice but to join the Patriotic Coalition of Northern Groups and insist that they (Igbos) leave the north on October 1st,”the group said.
According to the group, “For quite some time, the abusive and provocative nature of the agitation has been tolerated even though they directly affect the sensibilities of the people of the regions particularly the north, which was specifically targeted for harassment and ridicule.
“Thus, an unruly crowd in the South Eastern part of this country led by Nnamdi Kanu, had for quite long disturbed the peace of the nation with greater emphasis on Northerners whom they call baboons in zoo and other derogatory names,” it added.
