A PRESS STATEMENT RELEASED IN KADUNA BY NORTHERN ANTI-CORRUPTION FRONT IN RESPONSE TO THE PRO-BIAFRA PROTEST; OUR STANDS
It is no longer news that the pro-biafra agitators have stretched their demands beyond the limit of tolerance, as they attack innocent citizens of Northern extraction for a no justifiable reason. This has started in a similar manner in which the Biafra war started in 1967, as well as Boko haram in 2009. We will not in any way hence forth tolerate this form of rascality coming from criminals in the name of agitation for freedom.

In as much as we seek for a one united Nigeria, we will not regret the secession of Igbos from Nigeria as long as that is what they want. We will even encourage and support them with strategies to succeed if their agitation is done lawfully without harming innocent people from other parts of the country.
We do not wish for any form of reprisal attack by anybody from any part of the country hence, Igbos living in other parts of the country, most especially in Northern Nigeria must come out in strong terms and disassociate themselves from the activities of the so called Biafrans and the attack on Northerners, if not, their silence will be read to be a nod to the treacherous activities of Nnamdi Kanu and his co-travelers.
Igbo communities in the North should as matter of immediate effect rebuke and disassociate themselves from their kinsmen in south-east and south-south calling for war and attacking innocent northerners residing there.
We call on south-east and south-south governors, leadership of igbo traditional council and Ohaneze ndi Igbo to distant themselves from the violent and unlawful activities of this so called Biafrans, which is capable of disrupting the peace and stability of the whole country.
Igbo owned media outfits are advised not to promote the activities of these criminals in the name of Biafra in any guise, and should immediately initiate programs that will help deradicalize the ignorant followers of the fraudster called Nnamdi Kalu.
We call on the federal government to treat these miscreants with the same gloves Boko haram is treated in order to avoid escalation.
Our demands are to be met within the next 7 days to avoid further action.
Comrade Yusuf Amoke
