Igbo quit notice: Arewa youth will be arrested no matter how long it takes – El-Rufai

Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai on Tuesday said he would arrest members of the northern coalition groups that gave the Igbo a three-month ultimatum to leave the region no matter how long it takes.

The youths who gave the ultimatum in an open letter to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo said the Igbos should be allowed to form Biafra.

But El-Rufai, while speaking at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House, Kaduna said ‘nobody can come to Kaduna and say this nonsense (quit notice)’.

He said this while hosting the Igbo Delegate Assembly and northern Igbo chiefs.

The governor insisted that no matter how long it would take, the Arewa youths who signed the quit notice would be arrested and prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others.

El-Rufai said, “The Kaduna State Government is grateful to the Igbo for coming; Kaduna has suffered so many crises, so, we are very sensitive to comments that incite and cause disaffection among the people.

“Kaduna used to be a home for all, but so many crises have divided the state and the metropolis across religious lines.

“As a government, we abolish ‘indigeneship’, once you live in Kaduna you are an indigene.

“We have arrested so many people over hate speeches and we are trying them. We are going to arrest the Arewa youths and bring them to justice, no matter how long it takes since the press conference was done in Kaduna.

“If they had done it in any other place, we would have just condemned them, but since it is in Kaduna, we are going to arrest them no matter how long it takes.
