Arewa youths withdraw quit notice to Igbos

The coalition of Northern youth groups that gave quit notice to Igbos to vacate the Northern Nigeria has temporarily withdrawn the notice.

The groups led by the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, issued the quit notice in June, asking Igbos to leave before October 1 and claiming their demand was in response to the secessionist stance of some pro-Biafran groups, like Nnamdi Kanu’s IPOB.

The groups announced a suspension of the quit notice on Thursday at a press briefing at the Transcorp hotel in Abuja.

Punch reports that before the announcement was made, the group members had met with the Governor of Borno State, who is also the Chairman of Northern Governors’ Forum, Mallam Ibrahim Shetima and a former Governor of Kano State, Alhaji Kabiru Gaya.

Also in attendance at the meeting were ex-minister Sani Daura and the Leader of Arewa Youths Council, Alhaji Shettima Yerima and a Nollywood Actor, Kenneth Okonkwo.
