Declare IPOB and Kanu terrorists – Northern youths tell UN


Northern youth group has called on the United Nations to declare the  Indigenous People of Nigeria, IPOB, and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, terrorists.

This was made known by Abul-Azeez Suleiman, the coalition’s spokesperson, in a statement stressed that the northern youth were concerned by the IPOB’s recent threats.

 “We became concerned that Kanu has finally crossed the boundaries of Nigerian laws and has blatantly breached international laws that specifically frown at the use of terror to achieve a goal”.

However, the group commended Acting President Yemi Osinbajo for adhering to the advice in its letter in which it pointed out the necessity of urgent action to curtail Mr. Kanu and his IPOB’s activities.

According to the statement, the group said it has officially written to the United Nation and urged for its urgent intervention in two key areas:

“1. That the UN invokes the relevant statutes to which Nigeria is a signatory to pronounce Kanu and IPOB as terror outfits, proscribe their activities and initiate criminal actions against them.

“2. Since it is becoming all the more obvious -by the way IPOB and Kanu enjoy massive support from the Igbo back home- that the issue of the drive for Biafra nation is still a boiling issue, we urged the UN to intervene by initiating processes for a peaceful referendum as the only option to finally settle the Biafran issue.

“Finally, as we patiently await the decision of the UN and the Nigerian authorities, we reaffirm our faith in one peaceful Nigeria and restate our stand on nonviolence,” the statement concluded.
