Following the call by Northern Elders Forum and Coalition of Northern Groups, for Fulani people to leave the South, the Biafra Nations Youth League, has charged the people of South-East and South-South to immediately leave the North.
The group in a statement signed and released by the Chief Press Secretary of BNYL, Comrade Kufre Obot, pleaded with its people to return home or risk being killed after the 30th July ultimatum by CNG.
BNYL stated that the move by the Northerners is due to its threat to retaliate any incident against people of South-East and South-South.
“We met at a closed-door today after reading the statement from northern elders and their CNGs, we resolve to equally call on the Igbo, Efik-Ibibio, Ejagham, Ogoni, Uhrobo, Ijaw and other tribes from the South-south to return home before the 30th ultimatum only if their life is more precious to them than their Business, they should return and at least observe if the ultimatum is a joke or not before concluding,” the statement added.
BNYL stated that it will not tolerate the killing of any Easterner in the North even though it stated that Fulani should leave the South.
“It is a signal and we are ready to face it in whatever ways they want,” the group said.
However, President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians of safety as they continue to live peacefully and lawfully in any part of the country where they so desire.
The President added that the threat by the Northern Elders Forum should be totally ignored.
