Northern youths give Yoruba 72 hours to leave, charge Sunday Igboho to lead them out

By Our Correspondent
 

Northern youths have told all Yorubas resident in the North to leave the region in the next 72 hours.

They particularly called on rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Ighoho, to lead his people out of the region, or they will force them out at the expiration of the ultimatum.
 
They, in fact, solicited the support of northern elders, traditional rulers and security agencies in their resolve to drive Yorubas away from the19 northern states and Abuja.

The youths, under the auspices of the Arewa Youth Assembly, said the decision was informed by the declaration of the Yoruba nation by Ighoho on Wednesday.
 
Arewa Youth Assembly, in a statement issued by its Speaker, Mohammed Danlami, said Igboho had continuously threatened lives and properties of northerners residing in the South-West for no reason.
 
They said since it is Igboho who wants Yoruba out of the North to form a Yoruba nation, northern youths will make it easy for him by asking him to provide a means of transportation to convey his people to the South-West.

“We are hereby giving him 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.
 
“We wish to call on the northern elders, traditional rulers and all security agencies to support us in accomplishing this task of evacuating the Yorubas out of the 19 northern states and the FCT Abuja, by making it a very peaceful exercise devoid of loss of lives and destruction of properties or hijack by hoodlums, to prevent the recurrence of the End-SARS protest,” it said
