The Kaduna State Police Command has reacted to the warrant of arrest slammed on the spokesman of Arewa Youths Coalition, Abdulazeez Suleiman.
The commissioner of Police in Kaduna, Agyole Abeh, while speaking to newsmen in Kaduna, vowed to fully implement the arrest warrant.
He simply said: “Any warrant of arrest from a court will be carried.”
“The Kaduna state government took exception to the fact that the ‘northern youths’ did their irresponsible press conference in Kaduna,” the Police boss added.
The warrant of arrest of the accused persons, which dated 8th August, 2017 with case no: KMD/137x/2017, between the Commissioner of Police (complainant) and Abdul’azeez Suleiman,(defendant) explained that, the accused: “Stands charged with the offence of inciting Section 78,disturbance 77,injurious falsehood 37,unlawful Assembly section 66,criminal conspiracy section 59 of penal code law 2017. You are hereby directed to arrest the said Abdulazeez Suleiman and to produce him before me.”
Recall that, the Coalition of Northern Groups, (CNG) had in Kaduna issued the quit notice in June, asking Igbos to vacate the North before October 1 as they claimed their demand was in response to the secessionist stance of some pro-Biafran groups, like the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Kaduna State government had condemned the quit notice and ordered the arrest of those signatories to the declaration.
