The coalition of Northern youths have called on the United Nations to name the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and their leader, Nnamdi Kanu, terrorists.
According to a statement signed by the coalition’s spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, as made available to Eyes of Lagos, they noted that Nnamdi Kanu and his IPOB menbers have blatantly disregarded the laws of the nation as well as international laws.
In addition, the statement noted that the threats being issued by Nnamdi Kanu made them to give quit notice to Igbos so as to curtail his excesses.
“Worried by these recent threats, we became concerned that Kanu has finally crossed the boundaries of Nigerian laws and has blatantly breached international laws that specifically frown at the use of terror to achieve a goal,” the statement partly read.
Furthermore, the statement noted that Nnamdi Kanu and his group enjoy some level of support from leaders across all strata in Igboland -a reason they have been quiet until lately.
They called on the United Nations to expedite action on the matter to ensure a united and stable Nigeria.
“Finally, as we patiently await the decision of the UN and the Nigerian authorities, we reaffirm our faith in one peaceful Nigeria and restate our stand on nonviolence.”
