Police begins action against Arewa youths over quit notice to igbos

The police in Kaduna have launched a manhunt for Arewa youths who signed a declaration issuing a 90-day ultimatum to Igbos in the north to leave.A coalition of northern youths in what they tagged ‘Kaduna Declaration’ on Tuesday, June 6, ordered Igbos to vacate and return to the south east.In response, Governor Nasir El-Rufai on Wednesday, June 7 ordered the arrest and prosecution of the signatories of the quit notice.
“The Kaduna state government takes exception to the fact that the “northern youths” did their irresponsible press conference in Kaduna. This government has been consistent in taking action to punish hate speech and incitement. People who may feel unhappy about irresponsible comments or actions that have taken place in other states must know that two wrongs cannot make a right, and they cannot use our state to do or say things that threaten the peace.
