Northern youths write UN, want IPOB declared terrorist group

A coalition of Northern youths including  the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum have written to the United Nations to declare Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)  as a terrorist  group.
This was revealed in a statement  by the group’s spokesman  Abdul-Azeez Suleiman while  addressing  newsmen  in Abuja.

The group who earlier  called the UN to speed up referendum  process for the Biafra agitators  after a 3 months quit notice ultimatum said they would  like Nnamdi Kanu  and IPOB declared  criminals and necessary  actions taken against  them.

He said

“As  law-abiding citizens, we wrote officially to the United Nations and urged for its urgent intervention in the following two key areas:

 “That the UN invokes the relevant statutes to which Nigeria is a signatory to pronounce Kanu and IPOB as terror outfits, proscribe their activities and initiate criminal actions against them.

“Since it is becoming all the more obvious – by the way, IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu enjoy massive support from the Igbo back home – that the issue of the drive for Biafra nation is still a boiling issue, we urge the UN to intervene by initiating processes for a peaceful referendum as the only option to finally settle the Biafran issue.”
