Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide (OYC) has warned against the impending attack by the Boko Haram against the Ipob.
This is even as the group alerted Ndigbo at home and diaspora to Persuade the South East Governors Forum to hasten Up their plans without further delay, for the Establishment of Southeast Regional Outfit OGBUNIGWE.
OYC, in a statement signed by its President General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, urged Igbo governors to, as matter of urgency declare the zone security outfit before Boko Haram terrorists masquerading as Herdsmen invade Southeast East in attempt to destroy the fragile peace we enjoy in the South.
“OYC demand immediate action to prevent the looming danger of attacking Igbos in our zone,” parts of the statement reads.
“Southeast Governors Forum through the South East Security Committee should ensure the timely Commencement of Southeast Regional Security Outfit OGBUNIGWE before the end of first quarter of 2020.
“OYC Condemned vehemently the Provocative threat of Boko Haram leader to attack Ipob members on Protest, it’s a confirmation that Sponsors and supporters of terrorism are envious of the strength and determination of Biafra agitators to draw World’s attention on the perceived Persecutions and threats of life against the Christian community in Nigeria,
“OYC warn that any Provocative attack on the soil of igbo Nation might sink Nigeria as it will never go Unchallenged. This is a trap to provoke biafra agitators to pick up arms and abandon their non violent agitation,and We Urge them not to fall into these traps.
“OYC appeal to ipob, Massob and other biafra agitators to suspend any further actions or activities in terms of processions and protests until the South East Governors tighten up the Security of the South East, recall its 50 years now since after War, that there’s no record of any Explosions in the Southeast, and it will never happen again,
“Boko Haram should Not dare Igbos as We are already vigilant and Ready to defend Our territories against any eventuality… they should concentrate their activities in the North.
“We call Federal Government to intensify their efforts to end insurgency in the North and co operate with US Government to arrest the leader of Boko Haram leader.
