  • Threatens declaration of sovereign state in Yoruba land
The Oodua Nationalist Coalition (ONAC) and the Oodua Liberation Movement (OLM), on Wednesday, warned northern youths against any act that will lead to collapse of the country’s security and disintegration of the country.
Presiding officers of the two groups,  Gbenga Awosode, Sunday Akinnuoye and Mallam Suleiman Musa Akintunde, in a joint statement protested that Northern youths who ordered Igbos to quit the North are intolerant and lack basic respect for the fundamentals of democracy,
The officials articulated that the declaration of the mainly Hausa-Fulani youths run contrary to the norms of democracy and human rights. “Let it be known that we are hand-in-hand with the Igbo’s demand for self-determination. We support their protest. We will never allow what happened in 1966 to repeat itself. Enough is enough. If the Hausa Fulani youths can ask Igbo to leave the North, their next target will be Yoruba, their historic enemy,” they declared.
They were of the view that the order by the Hausa-Fulani youths was part of the plot to destabilise Nigeria in the full realisation that their kinsman is not presently at the helms of affairs due to ill-health. “Nigerians should be alert knowing that this threat is coming few days after rumours of a coup became widespread,” they said.
“But in reality, having Yoruba sovereignty is far more important than the Yoruba producing the President of Nigeria forever,” they declared.
“What we have seen is the increasing Talibanisation of Northern Nigeria by people who have no respect for the norms of democracy. The statement asking Igbo people to quick Northern Nigeria is misplaced, an assault on democracy and an extension of political terrorism”, the group said in the statement,” OLM and ONAC declared.
Meanwhile, the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has ordered immediate vacation of the North by the Igbo population following the Kaduna Declaration by Coalition of Northern Youths on Tuesday. Accordingly, MASSOB told the Igbos not to wait for the three months ultimatum before vacating the North.
Uche Madu, MASSOB Leader, the quit notice did not come as a surprise.
“MASSOB is aware that such rascality will happen. As a matter of fact, this is the only rascality exhibited by sponsored Arewa youths to forcefully exit the people of Biafra residing in Arewa land that MASSOB will 100 per cent support. Their Boko Haram tactics didn’t work as planned. We pledge our total support towards this divinely approved quit notice,” Madu had declared inter alia.
The Pan Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohaneze Ndigbo, however, told Igbos resident in the North to relocate to the South East only when they feel their lives are not safe anymore.
