WE WILL IGNORE IPOB PROVOCATIONS – AREWA YOUTHS

The coalition of Nothern youth groups has stated that it will ignore the ‘provocative’ actions of the Indigenous people of Biafra(IPOB) group, following the attack carried out on some Hausa traders in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.

The coalition has earlier issued a quit notice to Igbos living in Northern Nigeria but withdrew it after facing widespread criticisms. Speaking at a press conference in Kano on Wednesday, the Spokesman of the group, Abdulaziz Suleiman said;

“All the violent activities playing out are well planned to escalate by 2019 and starting from 2018 to prevent a successful conduct of elections and eventually the collapse of this Buhari government and democracy in Nigeria.

In this situation, it is essential that the north and northerners remain restrained and refuse to be provoked into reprisals which are the ultimate hope of the conflict instigators.

The agitations and disturbances that have been ongoing ceaselessly since the coming of Buhari/Osibanjo administration are aimed at rendering the country practically ungovernable and ushering in of anarchy and instability, thereby occasioning a change of government by whatever means.
And the singling out of Buhari for attacks is a tactic to cause inter-regional crisis possibly leading to general unrest,”

Suleiman commended governor Ikpeazu of Abia state for imposing a 3-day curfew in the state following the crisis.
