While speaking on the recent ultimatum given by the Coalition Of The Northern Youths on the igbo’s residing in the north to leave the states mostly in Kaduna State, the former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that Northern youths calling for eviction of Igbos from the North are playing with fire.
In His Statement He said;
“Any pogrom or slaughter of Igbo in the North will lead to a swift, immediate and devastating retaliation throughout the South.
“The Northern youths must be warned and told in very clear terms. This is not 1966.
“Those that gave the Igbo quit notice in the North are playing with fire and that fire will consume them.
“They are plunging us into darkness and we shall enter that darkness together. Nigeria belongs to us all.
“I urge the core Muslim Northern elders and leaders to caution their youths before they spark off a series of events and crisis that may not only lead to a second civil war but will also lead to the end of Nigeria.
“This time around the Igbo are not alone. An attack on them is an attack on every Southerner and every Middle-Belter. And such an attack will have grave and unfathomable consequences.”
