According to the Igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the threat to deject law abiding Citizens from their places of abode in Northern Nigeria treason
– Ohanaeze called on all Igbos to stand for themselves; saying that enough is enough
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo group has asked all members living outside the south-east to stand up for themselves, following the notice given to governors by some northern groups that is angry because of their refusal to carry out the Ruga settlement initiative for herdsmen.
In a statement made by its president general, John Nnia Nwodo on Thursday, July 4, the apex Igbo group called on all Ndigbo to be ready to stand up themselves wherever they find them selves.
We got information that the statement said that attention has been drawn to a broadcast by Abdul Azeez Suleman, speaking for a Coalition of Northern Groups in which he had the authority to give the federal government a mandate of 30 days to rethink its decision on the suspension of its Ruga settlements policy.
“Abdul went further to threaten the expulsion of southerners resident in the North at the expiration of his dateline if the federal government does not change their mind on its suspension decision.
“This irresponsible, unlawful and provocative speech reminds me of the quit notice from northern youths about two years ago.
“Ohanaeze insists that the Ruga policy is an Islamisation and Fulanisation policy. It is a violation of our constitution and Supreme Court decisions on the Land Use Act. Its suspension without termination makes the federal government still in violation of our laws and constitution.
