WAR: Arewa Youths Chicken Out

The northern youths’ group called Arewa Youths, has called on all the northerners to remain peaceful and law abiding in the heat of provocation orchestrated by Nnamdi Kanu.

Spokesman of the group, AbdulAziz Suleiman, alongside other leaders such as Yarima Shatima and Mastura Sharif gave the statement in Kano on Wednesday during a press conference at the Nigerian Union of Journalists’ Press Centre.

The group said northerners would not be provoked into launching a reprisal attack, knowing full well that taking such moves would simply play into the calculations of IPOB.

According to the group, “all the violent activities playing out are well planned to escalate by 2019, and starting from 2018 to prevent a successful conduct of elections and eventually the collapse of this Buhari government and democracy in Nigeria.

“In this situation, it is essential that the north and northerners remain restrained and refuse to be provoked into reprisals which is the ultimate hope of the conflict instigators.

“The agitations and disturbances that have been ongoing ceaselessly since the coming of Buhari/Osinbajo administration are aimed at rendering the country practically ungovernable and ushering in of anarchy and instability, thereby occasioning a change of government by whatever means.

“And the singling out of Buhari for attacks is tactics to cause inter-regional crisis possibly leading to general unrest.”
