The Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) has described the northern youths’ quit order to Ndigbo living in the North as a more treasonable offence than the one the Indigenous People of Biafra Leader Nnamdi Kanu allegedly committed.
PANDEF, therefore said that urgent steps must be taking to cushion the effects of the statement which is capable of breaking up the country.
According to the Chief Edwin Clark led group, the statement by the northern youths remains the most dangerous statement ever made by any group to the unity and existence of Nigeria, since the end of the civil war.
The group siad this in a statement signed by a Member of the Central Working Committee, Dr. Alfred Mulade.
“PANDEF considers this statement by the Arewa Youths as tragic and more treasonable offence than the offence allegedly committed by Nnamdi Kanu , the leader of IPOB, for which he was held in detention for about a year. Not only is this statement a potent threat to the corporate unity of the country, but, in our view, appears the most dangerous statement ever made by any group to the unity and existence of Nigeria, since the end of the Civil War.
“This statement by the Arewa Youths which strikes at the very roots of the Nigeria we believe in, is, indeed, an attempt to divide and break up the Country, whose unity is guaranteed by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the statement read.
