The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) said yesterday that it will put the indigenous people of biafra (IPOB) and their Northern collaborators to shame put by ensuring a peaceful independence celebration today.
The coalition stated this while reacting to the bench warrant obtained from the court by the Kaduna state government to arrest its members for giving October 1, 2017 as deadline for Igbos leaving in the North to quit or be forced out of the region.
In a statement issued yesterday by its spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, the CNG said it was curious that despite the well-publicized withdrawal of an earlier quit notice against Igbos, el-Rufai of Kaduna State insists on refreshing its memory by deliberately going to the market square with news of another plot to arrest the signatories to the Kaduna Declaration for their strategic response to IPOB’s serial insults against northerners”.
The Arewa youths called on all Northerners to “once again remain true to their cultured nature by keeping calm, law abiding”.
The coalition urged Northerners to resist “the temptation to be used to destabilize this administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, which is the ultimate aim of IPOB and its Northern collaborators.”
While assuring Northerners of CNG’s resolute commitment to the protection of the integrity of the region, its leaders, elders and values, the Arewa youths urged them “to once again put IPOB and its northern collaborators to shame by ensuring a peaceful 1st October celebration devoid of untoward incidents.”
