"You Have 72Hours To Move Your People Out Of Northern Region" Arewa Youths Sends Warning To Sunday Igboho Over His Statement.


Arewa Youth Assembly, a northern group, has given Sunday Igboho, a Yoruba activist, 72 hours to relocate Yoruba indigenes from the north.

The group issued the ultimatum in response to a statement attributed to Sunday Igboho on March 18 in which he stated that the time had come for the Yoruba Nation to be realized.

Sahara Reporters quoted Igboho as saying

"Starting from now, we don't want herdsmen in our land to disturb our farms again. If we meet any killer herdsmen, we are going to face and destroy them.

If any police attack us for that, we are ready for them. We don't want Nigeria again, but Yoruba nation. There is no essence for one Nigeria when major resources in the country are in the hands of the northerners.

Enough is enough, no going back… we are not scared of anybody; these killer herders are taking over our land and they are killing us''

In response to Igboho's statement, the Northern youth group, through its speaker, Mohammed Salihu Danlami, demanded that Igboho relocate all Yorubas from the North within 72 hours.

"One Mr. Sunday Igboho issued a press statement in which he was quoted as saying enough is enough; that the time for Yoruba nation is now, that they will no longer accommodate and accept the presence of Northerners.

The constitution of the country has made it crystal clear that any Nigerian can live in any part of the country, irrespective of his or her religious and tribal placements.

We are hereby giving him the ultimatum of 72 hours to move his people out or we will be forced to take necessary actions by personally taking the responsibility of getting his people back home," the statement read in part

The Northern group stated that it will continue to operate as a law-abiding civil youth organization, adding that it will not stand by and watch innocent Nigerians be threatened by those who do not respect the law.
