The AREWA Youth Assembly has now given 72 hours ultimatum to the prominent activist and Yoruba freedom fighter popularly known as Sunday Igoho to move his Yoruba people out of their lands following how he and his groups have been making life unbearable for the people from the Northern region of Nigeria.
Report from the Arewa’s says that the Yoruba’s must leave the North or they take responsibility for getting them back home
The speaker of the Arewa Youth Assembly Mohammed Salihu Danlami, said in a statement, that the entity of Nigeria is nonnegotiable and called on all stakeholders in the country to reject anything that would cause confusion in the land.
He also cried out on 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, they will no longer accommodate and accept the presence of Northerners.”
The group noted, “This is despite the fact that 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.”
The Arewa Youth said that it still affirms its position as a law-abiding civil youth organization, that notwithstanding, it would not fold its arm and watch innocent Nigerians being threatened by individuals who clearly have no regard and respect for the law like Mr. Sunday Igboho.
According to the group, “Since it is Igboho who wants his people out of the North to form the Yoruba nation, we will make it easy for him by asking Mr. Igboho to provide a means of transportation to convey his people to the southwest.”
It noted that Mr. Igboho has continuously threatened the lives and property of northerners residing in the southwest for no reason, adding, “we have kept quiet for the sake of peace and for respect of the laws of our country, but as Mr. Igboho rightly said, enough is enough.”
The group called on the northern elders, traditional rulers and all security agencies to support them in accomplishing the task of evacuating the Yorubas out of the 19 northern states and the FCT Abuja by making it a very peaceful exercise devoid of lost of lives and destruction of properties or hijack by hoodlums to prevent the re-occurrence of the End-SARS protest.
