Nigeria’ll burn if Northerners retaliate attacks on them – Arewa Forum warns

The Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has warned that Nigeria will go up in flames if Northerners decide to retaliate attacks on them in other regions.

ACF’s spokesman, Emmanuel Yawe issued the warning while cautioning Northern youths against retaliation in the face of all forms of provocations.

Yawe urged Northern youths to remain calm and not set Nigeria ablaze by avenging attacks.

In a statement, the ACF spokesman recalled how the 1960’s retaliatory killings set the country in flames.

He said: “You see the thing about the north is that people will be provoking the north and the north will just keep quiet, but once the north retaliates, the whole country will go in flames.

“So we will continue to advise northern youths not to take the law into their hands, they should remain calm and not set the country ablaze.”

This is coming at a time some Northern groups had declared Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, wanted for destruction and killings of Northerners in the Southeast.

17 Northern groups under the aegis of the Northern Consensus Movement (NCM) had made the declaration while placing a bounty of N100m on Kanu.
