The leader of Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, Yerima Shettima, has said the Igbos are now safe in the North.

Shettima, who led the coalition of Arewa youths that issued quit notice on Igbos living in the region, has assure that the Igbos are safe.
Fielding questions from Sun, the youth leader said, “They [Igbos] are safe. You can rest assured they are safe. You can quote me; they are safe in the North.”

Asked if nothing bad will happen to them on the expiration of the period they were given to vacate the 19 states in the region, Shettima added, “They are safe. Events and time have changed the mindset of the northerner, not even me who represents their interest.

“No, they shouldn’t go. They should relax. Officially, we will make an announcement to that effect because it is a collective thing. So they can rest assured of their safety and security God willing.

“We have no problems with the Igbo living in the North, but there are certain things we need to put in place so that officially at the level of the coalition we can make that statement.”

  2. AYCF ought to think before making any public statement and not the other way round. This reversal can't correct the damage the initial statement has done. However, it's good that they have retraced their steps.

    1. Did Kanu think before abusing every tribe in Nigeria? Did Kanu weighed the consequences of his actions when he called Nigeria 'zoo?' For every action, there's always a corresponding reaction. Just let there be peace and bury the whole matter.

  3. AYCF's turning back or front on their quit notice won't solve Nigeria's present problem. Referendum is the solution...

    1. Just because you have nothing to lose if there's chaos and killing didn't give you the impetuous to call anyone a coward. Those established Igbo people know what's at stake, should mayhem encouraged.
