Arewa Youth Assembly, AYA, a Northern group has given Yoruba residents in the North an ultimatum of 72 hours to vacate the North.
The Speaker, Arewa Youth Assembly, Mohammed Salihu Danlami, revealed this in a statement on Thursday, following a press statement issued by Sunday Igboho on Wednesday, warning “We’ll destroy Fulani herdsmen in our farms – Sunday Igboho” , and also lauding the establishment of the Yoruba Nation as “a goal that must be actualized”.
“We are hereby giving him [Igboho] the ultimatum of 72 hours to move his people out or we will be forced to take necessary actions by personally taking the responsibility of getting his people back home,” the group’s speaker said.
AYA noted that Nigeria’s entity was” non- negotiable,” calling on all stakeholders in the country to reject anything that would confuse the land.
The statement reads in part, “One Mr Sunday Igboho issued a press statement in which he was quoted saying, ‘enough is enough,’ that the time for Yoruba Nation is now; that they will no longer accommodate and accept the presence of the Northerners.
“The constitution of the country has made it crystal clear that any Nigeriam can live in any part of the country, irrespective of his or her religion and tribal placements.”
The group said it still affirm its position as a law abiding civil youth organization adding that it would not fold its arms and watch innocent Nigerians being threatened by individuals who have no regard for the law.
