The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has rejected the withdrawal of the quit notice earlier issued to Igbo people living in the northern region by the coalition of Arewa Youths Consultation Forum.
The Arewa youths, under the aegis of Coalition of Northern Groups, on Thursday, withdrew its quit notice to Ndigbo but said it would continue to push for the re-arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu as well as tagging the Biafran group a terrorist body.
The Arewa group had issued a three months eviction order to all Nigerians of Igbo extraction living in the northern region to vacate the north before October 1, 2017 or face physical attacks.
However, before the expiration of the order, the group made a volt farce, withdrawing the order yesterday. But IPOB has rejected the withdrawal, urging the Arewa Youths to stick to the eviction order if they have integrity. IPOB also urged all Igbos and other southerners living in the north to ignore the withdrawal and come home.
