In his statement, Professor Ango Abdullahi said, ”The government owns the power to arrest whoever they want to arrest, but I hope that they would arrest the youths and put them on trial in the court of law that belongs to Nigerians and not the ones they set up. “We know that the government of El-Rufai doesn’t even obey the law or court orders. I support the youths’ declaration. They did a good job and by waking up Nigeria from its sleep.” 

The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG), has since withdrawn the notice given to the Igbo’s after the intervention of Borno state governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima.

The Kaduna state police has however maintained that despite that the warrant of arrest on the Arewa youths will be fully implemented. The state commissioner of police Agyole Abeh, issued a statement saying, ”any warrant of arrest from a court will be carried.”

The Kaduna state government on Thursday September 28 announced that it collected a bench warrant from the court,  for the arrest of the Arewa youths in lieu of the October 1st quit notice they served the Igbo’s living in Northern Nigeria.

The details of the arrest warrant of the Arewa Youths which showed the offences allegedly committed by the youths are;

– Inciting disturbance punishable under section 78 of the penal code laws of Kaduna state 2017.
– Disturbing public peace punishable under section 77 of the penal code laws of Kaduna state 2017.
– Injurious falsehood punishable under section 373 of the penal code laws of Kaduna state 2017.
– Unlawful assembly punishable under section 66 of the penal code laws of Kaduna state 2017
– Criminal conspiracy punishable under section 59 of the penal code laws of Kaduna state 2017.

 

Recall that the Igbo’s have been advised by three lawyers in Anambra state to return home to the Southeast whether or not the threat made by the Arewa youths is carried out.

One of pages removed by Facebook on Thursday, as revealed by Frank, was loaded with viral false news and targeted attacks on Abubakar, Nigeria’s former vice president.

According to Timi Frank, the report reads:

“that on the overall, the misleading accounts had reached some 2.8 million users, and the pages had engaged over 5,000 followers, according to Facebook’s estimates.”

After praising Facebook, He went on further to say:

“Nigerians ought to be worried about how the APC-led government is spending huge amount of money just to discredit the rightful winner of the 2019 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar.

“I believe that if a lie goes on for 20 years, truth will definitely catchup with it one day. It will not be long before Nigerians will realise how desperate and fake President Muhammadu Buhari is in his bid to hang onto power.”

The political nationalist called on the rest of the world to acknowledge the press release of the Associated Press as well as the resulting damage accomplished in the last election to Nigeria’s second largest party and its presidential nominee.

He said:

“The AP’s report has clearly shown the level of lies sponsored against Atiku during and after the last general election. The campaign of calumny has not stopped but Nigerians should henceforth disregard malicious reports in the social media against the former VP,”
