Coalition of Northern Youths Ask Igbos to Leave the Region

A coalition of northern youths met on Tuesday in Kaduna and reportedly demanded that the Igbos in the region leave on or before the 1st of October, 2017, Sahara Reporters reports.

In what was termed the “Kaduna Declaration,” the coalition warned all Igbos residing in the north to leave the region in three months, stating that on the 1st of October – Nigeria’s Independence Day – “major moves” including the reclamation and control “of these landed resources currently owned, rented or in any way enjoyed by the ingrate Igbos in any part of Northern Nigeria” will be made.

The paper was issued by the Arewa Citizens Action for Change, the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Arewa Youth Development Foundation, and the Arewa Students Forum and Northern Emancipation Network on the Igbo Persistence for Secession.

The paper also advised the Northerners residing in the East to leave before the said date.

They stated that the decision was necessitated by “the persistence for the actualization of Biafra by the unruly Igbo of South-Eastern Nigeria,” which has evolved to “the forceful lockdown of activities and denial of other people’s right to free movement in the South-East by the rebel Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its overt and covert sponsors.”

The paper accused the leaders of the north “whose people are at the recieving end of the threats” of appearing helplessly unperturbed.

In its conclusion, the paper states that commencing from the 1st of October, “effective, peaceful and safe mop-up of all the remnants of the stubborn Igbos that neglect to heed this quit notice shall commence to finally eject them from every part of the North.”

THE KADUNA DECLARATION BEING A JOINT POSITION PAPER ISSUED BY THE AREWA CITIZENS ACTION FOR CHANGE, AREWA YOUTH CONSULTATIVE FORUM, AREWA YOUTH DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION, AREWA STUDENTS FORUM AND NORTHERN EMANCIPATION NETWORK ON THE IGBO PERSISTENCE FOR SECESSION

June 06, 2017

PREAMBLE

The persistence for the actualization of Biafra by the unruly Igbo of South-Eastern Nigeria has lately assumed another alarming twist which involved the forceful lockdown of activities and denial of other people’s right to free movement in the South-East by the rebel Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its overt and covert sponsors.

This latest action and similar confrontational conducts which amount to a brutal encroachment on the rights of those termed as non-indigenous people residing and doing lawful businesses in those areas illegally demarcated and defined as Biafra by the Igbo, are downright unacceptable and shall no longer be tolerated.

OBSERVATIONS

Concerned by this persistent Igbo threat to national integration, the above-namedPan-northern groups met with several others and reviewed the current position of the North and jointly came up with the following observations:

1. IGBO PROVOCATION

a. The Igbo people of the South-East, without remorse for the carnage they wrought on the nation in the 1960s, are today boldly reliving those sinister intentions connoted by the Biafran agitation that led to the very first bloody insurrection in Nigeria’s history.

b.  Emboldened by the apparent indifference of the Nigerian authorities, the Igbo secessionist tendency is widening in scope and action at every stage, with adverse effects on the law-abiding people of other regions residing in or passing through the East, while the Igbo leaders and elders by their utterances and direct action or inaction appear to support and encourage it.

c.  This is happening irrespective of the undisputable fact that:

i.  The cruel Igbos have done and are doing more damage to our collective nationhood than any other ethnic group; being responsible for the first violent interference with democracy in Nigeria resulting in a prolonged counter-productive chain of military dictatorship.

ii. The Igbos similarly orchestrated the first, and so far, the only civil war in Nigeria that consumed millions of lives and sowed the seed of the current mutual suspicion and distrust.

iii.  The Igbos are also responsible for Nigeria’s cultural and moral degeneracy with their notorious involvement in all kinds of crimes, including international networking for drug and human trafficking, violent robberies and kidnappings, high-profile prostitution and advanced financial fraud.

iv.  At the peak of the devastating Boko Haram violence in some parts of the North, available records show that the Igbo people have variously been apprehended while attempting to convey catches of dangerous arms and ammunition to the troubled regions.

v.  There are today sufficient reasons to suspect that some Igbos masquerade as Fulani herdsmen to commit violent atrocities across the country in order to cause and spread ethnic disaffection.

vi.  It is also on record that since the inception of the current democratic dispensation, the Igbos have shown and maintained open contempt and resentment for the collective decision expressed by majority of Nigerians at various stages via generally acceptable democratic processes.

2.  DOCILE NORTHERN RESPONSE

a. While these provocative acts of aggression persist and grow in dimension with each new move, leaders of the North whose people are at the receiving end of the threats, appear helplessly unperturbed.

b. Rather than endorsing a concise framework for pre-emptive action to protect and safeguard the interest of the North and its people, leaders of the region at every stage tend to seek the cover of a flimsy and long-discarded excuse of having fought in the 60s to keep Nigeria united.

c.  Without pursuing a resolute action-plan, these northern leaders have adopted and have been dragging its people into a pitifully pacifist position in order tosustain an elusive national cohesion that has long been ridiculed by the Igbos.

OUR STAND

1.  From today, June 6, 2017, when this proclamation is signed, the North, a critical player in the Nigerian project, hereby declares that it will no longer be disposed to coexisting with the Igbos and shall take definite steps to end the partnership by pulling out of the current federal arrangement.

2. This conclusion is necessitated by the realization that it since ceased to be comfortable or safe to continue sharing the same country with the ungrateful, uncultured Igbos who have exhibited reckless disrespect for the other federating units and stained the integrity of the entire nation with their insatiable criminal obsessions.

3.  Rather than certain sections holding the whole country to ransom at every stage, each should be allowed to go its own way as we categorically proclaim today that the North is fed up with being the same country with this pack of acrimonious Igbo partners.

4.  The North hereby openly calls on the authorities and other national and international stakeholders to acknowledge this declaration by taking steps to facilitate the final dissolution of this hopeless union that has never been convenient to any of the parties.

PRELUDE TO FINAL SEPARATION

1.  RECOVERY AND CONTROL OF LANDED PROPERTY

As a first step, since the Igbo have clearly abused the unreciprocated hospitality that gave them unrestricted access to, and ownership of landed properties all over the North, our first major move shall be to reclaim, assume and assert sole ownership and control of these landed resources currently owned, rented or in any way enjoyed by the ingrate Igbos in any part of Northern Nigeria.

Consequently, officials of the signatory groups to this declaration, are already mandated to commence immediate inventory of all properties, spaces or activity in the north currently occupied by the Igbos for forfeiture at the expiration of the ultimatum contained in this declaration.

In specific terms, the groups are directed to compile and forward an up-to-date data of all locations occupied by any Igbo in any part of Northern Nigeria including schools, markets, shops, workshops, residences and every other activity spaces.

2.  RELOCATION NOTICE

Secondly, with the effective date of this declaration, which is today, Tuesday, June 06, 2017, all Igbos currently residing in any part of Northern Nigeria are hereby served notice to relocate within three months and all northerners residing in the East are advised likewise.

3. ENFORCEMENT

All northern civil society and pressure groups are by this declaration mandated to mobilize for sustained, coordinated campaigns at their respective State Government Houses, State Houses of Assembly, Local Government Council Secretariats, and Traditional Palaces to mount pressure for steps to be taken to ensure enforcement of the directives contained herein.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion, we are hereby placing the Nigerian authorities and the entire nation on notice that as from the 1st October 2017, we shall commence the implementation of visible actions to prove to the whole world that we are no longer part of any federal union that should do with the Igbos.

From that date, effective, peaceful and safe mop-up of all the remnants of the stubborn Igbos that neglect to heed this quit notice shall commence to finally eject them from every part of the North.

And finally, all authorities, individuals or groups are hereby advised against attempting to undermine this declaration by insisting on this union with the Igbos who have thus far proved to be an unnecessary baggage carried too far and for too long.

    This Biafra struggle finally caught my attention, and I started reading more and more about it, I’m beginning to believe in the actualization of Biafra, the only piece I don’t like is the Nnamdi Kanu character. Yes Igbos are marginalized, No, I don’t think secession is the answer, rather, decentralization. However, decentralization is a dream, one the northerners will never accept, so Yay Biafra! I’m already thinking of moving to the east myself and seeing what I can do to contribute to the dream of a greater igboland. P.S I’m 25, no I’m not a trader, I’m actually very educated thank you, and yes, we are many who have this dream, like me. And NO WE DEFINITELY DO NOT WANT ANY BLOODSHED. Can there be a referendum already so we can get the process going.
    p.s This is my own opinion, notice how I didn’t bash any tribes, state yours and let’s all live in peace.

      If the Igbos desire a referendum, they should follow the legal path. You have to ask your federal reps and senators to move the bill. Even if there is no provision for that in the Nigerian constitution, moving the bill will awaken all Nigerians that the Igbos are really tired of the country. I can certainly say that the Yorubas are not against your departure, just do it in a noble manner. We wish you a blessed Biafra.

      Buhari’s administration will go down in history as the worst leader who shattered Nigeria into unpatchable rubbles.

      Voters una welldoneooooo. God shall judge the part you played to elect a hater of one Nigeria.
      The blood of the innocents the Lord will ask from you. You voted this bad omen despite signs that a leopard doesn’t change his skin. You could have voted Atiku, Kwakwanso, Shekarau who are better human than a hater of all non Fulani.

      As for the Northerners( threat issuers), you guys are jokers!!! bloody one at that.
      Also for any non Igbos who think he/she is safe and will go silent, i simply pity your behind.
      Osibajo failed to attend ECOWAS where Bejamin Netanyahu addressed Africans.

      The CHURCH will thrive and the gates of hell will not prevail.

Because the way you blame him for every thing, it brings to mind the statement that there is a thin line between love and hate. You might think you hate him but He is always on your mind and that is what happens when you love someone, they are always on your mind.

      Sorry but this is banditry camouflaged as a fight for statehood. All you northern youth issuing ultimatum – when you go to London’s Mayfair to buy property, is the purchase based on your self-imposed identity? Do they say to you because you are Nigerian? If at the time of purchase you were British and then let’s say you decide to serve the Nigerian govt and they ask you to rescind your British nationality, how does that change your terms of ownersherip? Better still why should it terminate your ownership of your proper ty that was not gifted to you on the premise of your identity and personal beliefs? We ever a sad rendition of a country.

      June 7, 2017 at 1:38 pm

      Did you even read it? SMH.

      This is nuts! The govt needs to sit up and do something. These ones are complaining that IPOB people are disturbing non-igbos in the South East. And that the igbos are not hospitable towards non-igbos in the south east. That the business, homes and wellness of non-igbos aren’t peaceful because of the Biafra agitation. They also stated that they have consulted their leaders to intervene but they won’t listen, they only stated that they fought for Nigeria already in the civil war. So now, they want the igbos not to feel welcomed on their own side too. Once again, innocent igbos will suffer for the actions of few who are being fueled by corrupt leaders.

      Basically, we are seeing the northerners speak up about why they are like these towards the Igbos. They are still narrating the first coup and its ripple effect on democracy. Sigh. To me that coup wasn’t motivated by tribalism. Kaduna Nzeogwu isn’t even considered Igbo, he is seen more as a northerner than south easterner. And all the guy was trying to do is wipe out corrupt leaders. But these mistrust for igbos and their personalities , such as wanting to lead or take over where they work or are, as narrated by Ahmadu Bello, made the situation become misconstrued and narrated.

      Ironsi shouldn’t have forced this whole unitary ish. Even with federation we had issues. But I feel we could continue to work better as federation.

      I won’t be surprised if this so called youths are sponsored by some people to disintegrate Nigeria. I am tired of my country. Gosh. Instead of sensible people to see this for what it is. They will turn it into tribal war now online and everywhere now.

      There are people at the top playing stupid and bloody games with our lives and future. This is all about power tussle!

      For me, I have said it a million times. Peace is better. If disintegration will bring peace then so be it. But without bloodshed please. Because it is innocent people that will suffer!

    Wow! This is at best, laughable. Coming from a region known for ethnic bias, violence and lack of tolerance, this is preposterous. I am Yoruba and I don’t think the Igbos are Nigeria’s problem. The North is. And they need to get over themselves already. The Federal government just needs to look into the underlying issues fueling the South East’s agitation for their independent state and address them promptly instead of the Northern elders, who has always been anti-Igbo, masquerading as the Northern youth forum giving this obnoxious ultimatum to the Igbos.

      The North is the devil we know, The SW are tribalistic, cowardly buffons that won’t take a stand and low key hate Igbos

    • Ajiun

      June 7, 2017 at 2:40 pm

      Grace. Where is your stats for this so called hatred from the Yorubas. It is via the internet I even noticed this so called Yoruba vs Igbo madness. I have a lot of igbo friends and they are more Nigerian than me. In fact they are the ones who are always encouraging and persuading me to embrace my Nigerianness. If you are part of the sponsored youths that come online to plant discord amidst us, remember we will all reap what we sow someday. Sow love, not hate and stupid stereotypes.

      The Yorubas don’t hate the Igbos. The Yorubas don’t face same directions at once. We are lovers of life. And that doesn’t make us a coward. We are diplomatic when need be and straightforward when we need be. Any other attributes you want to label us with is to do with individualism which you will find across all ethnic groups. The Yorubas have never been ones to agree on same thing, we have diverse opinions and mindset. Stop this nonsense and focus not the bigger picture. You don’t vote at an election based on ethnicity but interest, i.e. if the person you are voting for will be of good benefit to you or not. Stop this sentimental nonsense! At times like this I don’t feel very Nigerian. A lot of Nigerians can be too sentimental! Gosh!

      And I am yet to meet an igbo whom feels he/she is better than anyone. I wonder where you people that type all sort of stereotypes about different ethnic groups meet all these people you use as your dataset. SMH.

      @ Grace, Yes we HATE Igbos like you that keep pointing your hand of mischief to us but we love the ones that are amiable and extend their hands of friendship to us, Yorubas hate the Igbo yet there are Igbos in the Lagos state house of representative. Why don’t you select an Igbo candidate in some parts of the North dominated by your people? Igbo people and their natural inclination to demand what they cannot offer?

    • Akara Pancake

      June 7, 2017 at 5:17 pm

      Grace, please take back that statement. I am Igbo through and through. However I lived in Lagos and went to schools in the South West for about 25 years of my life, and never was I made to feel unwelcome by Yoruba people anywhere. You will never hear of a Yoruba neighbours or scoundrels bearing arms to go kill Igbo people residing in their area or doing ethnic or religious cleansing.

      In fact because of how close we were, two of my close Yoruba friends married Igbo girls. I dated Yoruba girls too, one of whom is the love of my life to this day, even though we didnt end up together permanently. I also see a lot of Igbo-Yoruba marriages especially among our generation.

      Dont be fooled by the much spouted untruths about how Igbos go everywhere else but don not accomodate other ethnic groups. Yes we are more of travellers than other groups, but we are also accomodating. It is not like we kill non-Igbos in our midst. Right now, in my village which is in the hinterland of Imo State, away from civilization there are Northerners who are tenants living and earning a living by selling meat at the village market.

      When 2 of my ex classmates who are Yoruba were posted to Aba, Abia state for their NYSC, after their initial fear, they came to love the place. I made them go see and introduce themselves to my folks who gave them money and resources. They also spoke about how hospitable people were to them. One of them even said when he first travelled Aba, he nearly got down at a bus stop on the outskirts of the city, in an area notoriously known for miscreants and savages who kill, maim or kidnapp. One of the travellers in the bus, seeing his NYSC uniform and hearing him speak on the phone recognized he was a JJC, so told him to stay put until the next stop, and then got down and took him across the road to a safe spot where he could get a bus going into the town center.

      In any case, Igbos have to be a bit diplomatic about this. If we want to secede, we will require the support of other ethnic groups, either logistically or politically. Forget the accusations and counter-accusations of the past, the Yorubas can be our strongest ally in that regard. Both groups are among the most academically advanced in the country and share many similar ideals and ethos about life, despite cultural differences.

    • Mom of 3

      June 7, 2017 at 5:19 pm

      Actually Grace. You can’t be more wrong. We Yorubas are the most accommodating set if people you will ever meet. We don’t hate the Igbos and will never do and we are far from being the problem of Nigeria. I reiterate that the north is Nigeria’s problem and that story up there is one of the reasons I said so. I must say however that i take an aversion to you calling Yorubas tribalistic, cowardly buffoons. It is uncultured and portrays you in a very bad light, believe me.

    • Osa

      June 7, 2017 at 8:54 pm

      As far as I am concerned yorubas are actually too accomodating and complacent when it comes to tribal issues. Perhaps unaware of the fact that igbos are just jealous of their heritage. They are actually quite unaware. Igbos who associate with yorubas do it becos they have no choice. Eg the fact that yorubas are the most educated and enlightened set.
      Igbos i beg you to stop being bitter about the horrors u faced during the civil war. Your cowardice ojukwu killed you people not yorubas or hausas.
      Yorubas you better shine eye. Ive noticed a bit of stupidity on ur part. Claim your land. Claim your brothers. Stop supporting these bitter igbos in regular commun ications with them
      They are still bitter from the biafran war. Cant you see? Open una eyes yoruba nation.

      My opinion too. It’s not something I would pray for. However, we all have to agree that Lord Lugard that joined the Northern and Southern protectorates was probably high on mac and cheese while he did it. Since we have refused to see each other as one, let it kuku happen. They have arable land, they have coal, tin, iron ore etc. They have intellectuals and so forth. And the Igbos and Northerners have never met eye to eye. Never! If majority agree to go their way then so be it. This thing is ingrained in the history and soul of the Igbo nation. If it does not happen now, it will happen one day. Is it not 1967 that is coming back to hunt us now? Let these people go if they want to. They should follow due process. The British govt was forced to break Ireland away in 1922 because of the fear of a civil war arising from the Protestant unrest. Biko, before another civil war let us do what needs to be done. 67-70 cannot come and repeat itself o no need for bloodshed. No need at all. On a lighter note, I will be so sad that the Nigerian map will change. Our map is one of the most beautiful maps in the entire world.

    In a nutshell – this is how Biafra war started. Northerners – led byM urtala Muhammed started this uprising that led to the slaughter of many igbos, they retaliated and this retaliation is what we now know a biafra war.

    I have to sit on the fence regarding this. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The Igbos (not all) cannot continue beating the drums of war and division, insulting every tribe in Nigeria. The Northerners too (not all) should stop approaching issues with violence and 1967 mentality. Northerners need some form of social orientation on the value of human life.

    We may continue the chest beating but the reality is all tribes in Nigeria are directly or indirectly dependent on each other. No one is better than the other, let each tribe bring their strength to the table in order to complement one another. We love everyone in the southwest, in case the departing Hausas or the Igbos can’t go back home, we have land in villages in Oyo state that is quite cheap.

    This is a muslim organization hiding under the umbrella of “northern youth” to incite hatred and violence. I’m a northerner and I’m not privy to this nonsense. These people do not speak for indigenous northern christians. We are peaceful and accomodating and we do not subscrbe to their views.

    Everybody should understand that as Igbos are marginalized in Nigeria, that’s how northern christians are marginalized. The massacre in Southern Kaduna, and the government’s inaction is testament to this fact.

    Let me reiterate that northern christians are welcoming and compassionate. We are educated, industrious and peace-loving.

      Joor, igbos are not marginalized, more like opportunistic “array” of people. There are many igbos, they all don’t speak in one voice and they would rather go to other ethnic domains to thrive while neglecting their own towns. Their leaders are greedy like shit – almost as the northern leaders. So some similarities among these frenemies. What I don’t understand why Igbo leaders condemn this Arewa youths. They have been reminding us daily they want to secede for the past 50yrs; wo, they should seize the opportunity and leave now. We are tired of their whining.

    Ina country like Nigeria, NEVER EVER EVER invest what you cannot afford to lose in a region other than yours. Yes there ‘theory’ is One Nigeria, however the reality is not so. Igbos, please learn, and stop investing your lives in other regions. Nigeria is not a stable union. But I guess this advise is coming a little late…

      I believe all Igbos in any part of Nigeria moved there firstly because they found the area productive for their personal business and benefit. It is logical to scale up the business buy a decent house when business starts thriving (this is what most of you call investment) . I do not believe anyone leaves their country or zone chiefly for locating their investment in a foreign land. Similarly, Nigerians relocate to the USA or any other developed countries to fulfill their own economic objective. I have never seen a Nigerian that moved abroad because his intention is to invest.

    See epistle oo.Aboki don go school overnight because of the igbos, good for them. My candid advise to all the igbos living in the north is for them to begin now to pack their loads to leave before the said date irrespective of what any government or person would come out now and say to counter this plan because these Northerners are as mean as hell and they are as united as a group of Ants,because no matter what any Northern leader including the president pretends to do to change the decision of this group,it must be recorded of what they would do to any igbo person found in the North on 1st October. It’s sadly better you loose all your properties than your life oo.This epistle is no joke oo.He who have ear let him hear.JESUS PLEASE TAKE THE WHEEL!

      @Suga – this “See epistle oo.Aboki don go school overnight because of the igbos, good for them” is the major problem between north and east. You want to insult 1 you manage to insult all #wehdone and you don’t expect people to take offense.

    ISNT THIS BIAFRA?where is anon and Cisi Eze? where are those that trivalize the issues that the igbos face? Where is the outcry that should fellow from well meaning Nigerians? Where are the wole soyinkas,the falanas? Where are those that say the yorubas dont hate the igbos?I mean shouldnt there be a national outcry by now?I really dont blame them,I lay part of the blame on all the foolish igbo leaders who care nothing but themselves.who live to feed themselves & their family & want no part in history.Are there no leaders that can inspire the igbos to do something about this sorry state of the igbos?

      Aunty this is anon as requested by you. Please leave the Yorubas out of it. Don’t you have mouth and political giants in the Southeast. Why do you even expect us to join issues or defend your course? When Niger delta militants were blowing up pipelines, most of your eastern political heads kept quiet, while online comments from Igbos were in support of the Niger delta militants, just because your favored presidential candidate lost the election.

      Just to reiterate myself, I want the Igbos to get Biafra as fast as possible, so that everyone will move back to their region. Then, you will realize that irrespective of having your own country, human beings will always find a reason to fight and disagree.

      @ anon.I will also reiterate that i am not in support of Biafra ,you on the other hand you seem to want Biafra very much(cant wait to get rid of the igbos,can we?) .I know all too well that humans will find a reason to hate certain individuals,but when a whole tribe hates…..Read about rwanda,read about the hate one tribe had for another tribe,find out how many children were killed.I dont know if you know what happened in rwanda.
      You want to know what i support? EVERY WELL-MEANING NIGERIAN should be more involved in stopping a probable genocide instead of trivalizing the issues that around it or passing blame.

    I cannot believe the DEAFENING SILENCE from the executive and legislative and judiciary arms of government concerning this matter?!!
    This is like a horrible horrid silence of what happened before the civil war!!

    Ahhhhh Jesu! (Yoruba style, arms on-top-my-head)

    Why haven’t those who made this statement being arrested and made a public spectacle of?
    How can people make this statement and publish it and we are supposed to have security forces in Nigeria?

    Abi am I missing something? My hands are trembling as I type this and I’m not even in the North.

    I come from a mixed home, my dad is from kogi (north central) while my mum, enugu (east), although her forefathers were brought up in igala land, there was not one incident where the igala’s or kogi in general ever had problem with the easterners or anyother non-kogi language apart from the fulani’s who have always proved to be stubborn, and thats because we respect and love our neighbors even though we are still from the “north”,no offence meant but on the part of the igbo’s perpetuating notorious crimes, i dont support that.. yea right…it is every where, and i mean everywhere. Henious crime are been carried out in every part of the country today.
    BUT notwithstanding, the igbo’s should see Nigeria as our own, it doesnt belong to one state or people, clamouring for their country will not make things better, not one bit, RATHER THEY SHOULD PRAY TO CHUKWU.

    This Northern youth claim that IPOB makes it unsafe for Non-Igbos is completely bogus. Every IPOB rally is met with huge police and paramilitary presence to disrupt their activities. How many retaliation attacks have occurred in the South-East in relation to ethnic violence in the North or fulani herdsmen massacring civilians? Next to nothing.

    Yoruba’s hate Igbo’s indeed….name a Yoruba house of reps person in Onitsha or abia or all those eastern States…. Our hospitality is our problem with Igbo’s…always taking their bullshits without violence….
    I assure you,this nonsense the northerners sent out will not be punished…is it not Nigeria ni..
    Northerners own Nigeria…the end all and be all of Nigeria….Smh
