Igbos: ACF Issue A Caution Statement.

The umbrella body of Northern political organisations,

the Arewa Consultative Forum,
has issued a statement in the wake of quit notice served the Igbos living in the northern part of Nigeria. In a statement made public by the AREWA Secretary, Alhaji Muhamamdu Ibrahim Biu, Youths from both North and Biafra agitating youth from the South East, are warned to guard against their actions and utterances in view of political situation in the country. He urged all to embrace peaceful coexistence in a united Nigeria.

The statement read in part: “All concerned to note that our democratic system of government which is anchored on law guarantees free movement of all Nigerians to any part of the country.

Also pursue their legitimate livelihood devoid of any hindrance or molestation by any group or individuals.

The system allows settlement of all grievances through our elected representatives in both the National and States Assemblies and law courts".

“ACF appreciates the frustrations of the Northern Youths Groups with the activities of the MASSOB and IPOB members but would not encourage any act that is not conformity with the law by any group or individuals which will do no one any good".

We at Trucitadel brought you a report yesterday on the ultimatum given Igbos living in the North to leave within a three months period expiring on the 1st of October 2017.
The Federal Government spokesman, the Minister of Information, Alh. Lai Mohammed has allayed fears of any serious consequences. He assured that the Security agents and law enforcement agencies are on top of the situation.
