Rev Emmanuel Chukwuma, the Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province Enugu Diocese, has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari government over its inability to arrest the Arewa youths that gave Igbos living in the region quit notice.
Chukwuma expressed displeasure on Friday, June 23, while he said that those who gave Ndigbo three months to quit the northern part of the country were still walking freely without the Buhari’s government doing the needful.
He also reacted to the pro-Biafra agitators over the recently held sit at home to mark Biafra day and he urge them to look for other ways of carrying out their agitation, rather than a sit at home.
Guardian reports that he further condemned the quit order, saying the inability of the Federal Government to arrest those behind it was a serious signal to danger.
“This is worst than what Kanu was being persecuted for. This Synod hereby appreciates, however, the statement of some elders in the north in condemning the actions of these unscrupulous youths.
“We, however, warn that we will not tolerate what happened in 1966 to reoccur or else this country will be in total disarray.
“We are warning that our Igbo should be allowed to do their business anywhere, as others, and if the situation becomes unbearable for them, they should come back, but we will demand for referendum for us to be on our own,” he stated.
NAIJ.com recalls that the youths from the South-South zone of the country under the aegis of Oil & Solid Mineral Producing Area Landlords Association of Nigeria (OMPALAN) have condemned the Arewa group for the quit notice issued to Igbos.
A statement credited to the coalition of Northern youths, calling on the Igbos to quit the North before October 1st had been circulated.
