NAIJ.com recalls that a coalition of northern youths during a press conference in Kaduna ordered all Igbos living in the North to vacate the region. The group gave the Igbos a three-month ultimatum to leave the North. The group also advised all northerners residing in the south-E\east or south-south region to return to the north. The order by the youths which has come to be known as the Kaduna Declaration has been condemned by some prominent persons in the country.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state among other persons called for the arrest of all signatories to the declaration, but despite the call, the northern youths have refused to retract their statement. Meanwhile, a lawmaker during the Second Republic Junaid Muhammad has said that the Federal Government is not being frank with Nigerians on the quit notice issued to the Igbos living in the North by Northern youth group. The former lawmaker who spoke in Kano at a public lecture Mumbayya House, with a theme, “Electoral Democracy and Integrity in Nigeria, Reflections on INEC Transformation 2011-2015″ also urged the Nigerian government to tackle groups making such inflammatory statements through its security agencies. Muhammad warned that the failure of the government to tackle such national issues appeared to be fueling these drumbeats of war.
