The above statement was signed by Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, spokesperson of the Coalition of Northern Groups [CNG].
The Coalition said the arrest of Igboho and Kanu should not be mistaken as bringing about the end to the uprisings and disturbances over self-determination perpetrated by southern Nigerian elites and governments . They insisted on a peaceful referendum for separation from a people who would attack, kill and destroy people of other regions and their properties .
Igboho is a deliberate and calculated, supported and encouraged attempt by the Yoruba leaders including their governments to scare the North into agreeing to cede power without competition .
We hope With the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu and now Igboho, we are hoping that the government will dig up and expose their sponsors and agenda behind them.
