Northern youths write UN, want IPOB declared terrorist group | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


A coalition of northern groups, including the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, on Thursday called on the United Nations to declare the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra a terrorist group.

The groups, who gave Ndigbo in the 19 northern states a three-month ultimatum to quit the region before the October 1 deadline, also urged the world body to proscribe IPOB’s “criminal” activities in the country.

Besides, the Arewa group which had a press conference in Abuja,  urged the UN to intervene by initiating the process of referendum as a way of settling the agitation by the IPOB.

 The group’s spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, who spoke on behalf of the coalition, said,  “As  law-abiding citizens, we wrote officially to the United Nations and urged for its urgent intervention in the following two key areas:

 “That the UN invokes the relevant statutes to which Nigeria is a signatory to pronounce Kanu and IPOB as terror outfits, proscribe their activities and initiate criminal actions against them.

“Since it is becoming all the more obvious – by the way, IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu enjoy massive support from the Igbo back home – that the issue of the drive for Biafra nation is still a boiling issue, we urge the UN to intervene by initiating processes for a peaceful referendum as the only option to finally settle the Biafran issue.”

  1. Are you out of your minds?

  2. O! Funny enough to see Abdul-Azeez Suleima and his followers showcasing their "Level of Illiteracy" because of hatred! My dear, for you to occupy such position among your people, you should be sound in mind, and educationally ok.

    Well, I don't blame you guys... Since your culture forbids Western Education, how can a man of quality education be among you?

    Dear, why are you people contradicting your stance in this whole issue? Check all that you'd said on this issue before now, and correct yourselves.

    You should remind UN on the Referendum Nigerians are seeking for, and which you also called for, and not to call IPOB Boko-Haram. Also, my dear friend, go and check up the meaning of "Terrorist" from a Dictionary before you seek this kind of audience.

  3. So this baboons have taken this their madness to UN? I wonder why that their professor of trouble did not take time to educate them on what terrorism is all about. What a show of shame and insecurity. IPOB is there minding tueur business, Théo are busy raising useless propagander. Who says e no dey pain them say Biafra wan go?
