Ohaneze Tells Igbos In The North Not To Run But Stay And Defend Themselves

The pan-Igbo socio-cultural association, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, on Friday told all Igbos residing in the northern part of the country to stay back and defend themselves and their properties in the event of any post-election crisis in which they are attacked.

The call came on the heels of reports of mass exodus of non-indigenes from the northern parts of the country to their home states over fear of violence as a result of the general elections.

President General of Ohanaeze, Chief Gary Enwo Igariwey, who addressed journalists at the Ohanaeze national Secretariat in Enugu yesterday, said, in case of possible post-election crisis in the north where the Igbo people are usually potential targets, they should not run away, rather they should mobilize and resist such attack on them.

According to Igariwey, Ndigbo should no longer turn the other cheek when they are slapped. “Ndigbo are tired of running away each time there is crisis in the country. We are part of Nigeria and where we are living is our home; so Ndigbo should remain where they are residing and doing their legitimate business. If they are attacked, they should resist the attack”, he said.

The Ohanaeze leader noted that there are over 3.7 million Igbos residing in Kano alone and that such number could be used to cripple activities in the city if that was what the indigenes wanted.

You are right. The case of 1967 is what APC (with Buhari & Osibajo) Hausa & Yoruba want to BRG back but this time their evil counsel will bounce back on them. It will be turned into foolishness against them.
