- Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the quit notice given to the Igbos in the north
- The former minister warned that this time around any act of war will consume the north
- He also said those that gave the Igbos quit notice in the north are playing with fire
Former minister of aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has said any slaughter of Igbos in the north will lead to a swift retaliation throughout the south.
NAIJ.com gathered that the former minister in reaction to the three months eviction notice on Igbos in the north by the Coalition of Northern Youths (CNY), warned that this time around, any act of war will consume the north who believe they own Nigeria.
Fani-Kayode via his Facebook page said those that gave the Igbos quit notice in the north are playing with fire.
Read his message below:
"The northern youths must be warned and told in very clear terms. This is not 1966. Any pogrom or slaughter of Igbos in the north will lead to a swift, immediate and devastating retaliation throughout the south.
Those that gave the Igbo quit notice in the north are playing with fire and that fire will consume them. They are opening the gates of hell and they will enter that gate.
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 call their youths to order before they spark off a series of events and a 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."
In a previous report by NAIJ.com, former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, reacted to the quit notice issued to Igbos in the north by a coalition of northern youths describing it as a threat to national security.
Atiku via his official twitter page said the country is too precious and has pressing issues to attend to than the divisive statement of the northern youths.
The All Progressives Congress chieftain also criticised an Igbo group that also issued a counter-statement asking Igbos to return to the south east region while also ordering the northerners out of their state.
