The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has urged Northerners that are open to attacks in the South-East to return to their States in the North.\
Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, Director, Publicity and Advocacy, made this statement on Monday.
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) long sides with its Army ESN are moving around as boundary communities continue to experience bloodshed.
The forum demanded that attacks and killings of Northerners and Federal Government employees and destruction of National assets must stop.
“Those who have been involved in it must be arrested and prosecuted”, the elders demanded.
“We support calls for Northerners who are exposed to harassment and violence to consider relocating to the North”,
Baba-Ahmed said unlike “the postures and complacency” of South East leaders, all Igbo and other ethnic groups residing in the North should be accorded the usual hospitality and security.
The Northern elders, however, knocked National Assembly members for being out of touch “with the people they are supposed to represent”.
The NEF told the federal legislature to explore additional avenues that can help redress serious limitations to the federal system before the 2023 elections.
They added that it is willing to discuss all matters relating to constitutional amendments and restructuring with the leadership of the country and other groups, “who see their presence in the future of Nigeria”.
