Quit Notice: Uncontrollable Crisis Awaits Nigeria If Arewa Youths Are Arrested – NYLF Threatens





Northern Youth Leaders’ Forum (NYLF) has warned the Nigerian Police to withdraw an arrest order on youths in the North who asked Igbos to leave the region by October.

The leader of the group said the nation should prepare for “crisis beyond control” if Arewa youths were taken out of circulation.


National Chairman of the forum, Eliot Afiyo, said this on Monday while addressing journalists in Yola, the Adamwa capital.

He said any attempt to apprehend the signatories of the Kaduna declaration would ‎escalate tension.


“We want to appeal to Federal Government and the Inspector General of Police to withdraw forthwith, the directive to arrest the signatories of the Kaduna declaration.

“To our opinion, this decision will boomerang as it will only precipitate the crisis beyond control.


“We believed that our brothers in the south have said more than what our brothers said and they were not arrested. Therefore, no justification for the arrest”.

Daily Trust further quoted him as accusing Igbos for constantly making hate speeches.


“Our Igbo brothers for some years now have been frustrating, insulting and abusing other nationalities especially the northerners calling us cows and parasites despite our efforts in accommodating them”, he said.

The NYLF leader, however, advised the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to convene a meeting of youth groups nationwide to address the tension the declaration generated.

    Moses declared the freedom of Israelites out of Egypt to the promise land, but fourty years later Joshua actualised entering the promise land, the ways of God almighty is not the ways of man, just like kanu said, if you say is over your dead body that Biafra will stand, read 2king :7v1to20,

    Hausa and fulani you need to learn properly. Proper education will teach you that self-determination is a natural law; a right gauranteed by UNO. South Sudan were “secessionists”. Today South Sudan is participating in the world cup qualifiers as an independent nation. Eritrea was once in Ethiopia. Today Eritrea is a sovereign nation. Hausa stop listening to those hypocrites whose activities are hinged on deception and betrayal. Biafra is not war. Biafra is freedom. It is primitive and uncivilised to think that seeking freedom means war. You can see clearly we are not one. We can not be one. So how do you cry and die because someone asked for his freedom. Justice is on the side of Biafra. And who goes to a battle on the side of justice comes out victorious. Victory is for Biafra and Biafrans. Peaceful separation is the Solution. REFERENDUM will settle this imbroglio amicably. Free Biafra.

    These animals who are always using threat of killing should be marked for extermination because they are the ones using slaughter to impose their despicable whims on the country and prevent true democracy. The antidote is for the Christians and ethical Muslims of all tribes who are tired of being subjugated to slaughter by these bolster their defenses and take them out.

    Buhari should be impeached and everyone he hired into the military or government fired. Because they have set the country up for genocide and pogroms.

    It is folly and abomination for us to remain in nigeria in the sight of God and righteousness. Yorubas justifies wickedness. Osinbanjo must declare Biafra independent before October the 1st. To save lives.
