Arewa youths have asked South-East governors to immediately put an end to the killings of northerners in their region or face consequences.
The warning came after separate emergency meetings held yesterday by the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) and Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG).
This was at the backdrop of the killing on Sunday of a mother, her four children, and six others of northern extraction in Anambra State, allegedly by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
In a statement signed by its National President, Alhaji Yerima Shettima, AYCF said: “The fact that governors of the South East are the chief security officers of their states, but do nothing to stop the unprovoked killing of northerners, presupposes an ethnic cleansing agenda, and we condemn it in whatever guise – IPOB attack or ESN (Eastern Security Network).”
