Jigawa State deputy governor, Ibrahim Hassan, has revealed what will happen to Igbos resident in the state if the northern youths insist on ejecting them from region.
Speaking with some journalist in Duste, the state capital recently, Hassan said the state government would provide security for the Igbos resident in the state.
He said, “I’m not aware and it is not true. Report reaching us from the security operatives indicated the Igbo are not leaving the state. Also, the state police commissioner has met with all the associations of non-indigenes residing in Jigawa.
“They discussed extensively with police and they were satisfied with the security situations and assurances of adequate protection of life and property which made them to continue living in the state. Government is ever ready to protect them.
“Also those that made that pronouncement [Arewa Youth] made some statement later which indicated solutions to the issue. By God’s grace there wouldn’t be any problem in Jigawa and hopeful anywhere in the country.”
