Ohanaeze Ndigbo asks governors of south-eastern states evacuate Igbos living in northern Nigeria
| January 23, 2012
Ohanaeze Ndigbo (Kano State chapter) has called on governors of the south-eastern states to evacuate their indigenes currently living in Northern Nigeria. In a statement, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Kano chapter said, âAbout a month ago, the dreaded Islamic terrorist gang called Boko Haram issued a threat ordering all Southerners to vacate the north or face annihilation. Though the three day ultimatum they gave had elapsed with some pockets of attacks in Borno, Niger, Yobe States etc. Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Kano foresaw the wreckage that took place in Kano on Friday. âIf we can recall, Kano was the first base of Boko Haram insurgence following their first onslaught in April 2007 when the Boko Haram elements invaded Kano through the Panshekara axis and engaged security agencies in a series of attacks that claimed lives and government properties. âSince then, they have continued to put an eye on Kano with malicious concentration on non-natives. Ohanaeze Ndigbo Kano can also state without fear of contradiction that the January 20, 2012 attack on Kano remains the only biggest coordinated attack by the Islamic terrorist group where about nine locations were bombed and lives (including one Mr. Ibe, an insurance broker was killed) and property lost! âIn this light, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Kano is convinced that there is a planned Jihad on non-natives in Kano, particularly, the Igbos. Security report reaching us indicates that there is a serious plot by the Islamic terrorist group to invade Sabon Gari Kano, an enclave pre-dominantly dominated by the Igbos. âWe are also aware that this Islamic group serving the interest of some Islamic clerics, Northern traditional rulers and ruthless politicians, have a big plan to bomb churches, public places, hotels and selected private homes within Sabon Gari Kano. âFor the fact that in the January 20 attack on Kano, even journalists were not spared with the killing of the Channels reporter, Eneche Akogwu, by the Boko Haram terrorists, means that nobodyâs live is protected in Kano. Ohanaeze Ndigbo Kano, with a deep heart, uses this opportunity to commiserate with the National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Muhammed Garba and all journalists in Nigeria. The killing of Eneche Akogwu brings to two innocent journalists who have fallen victim to the wicked attack and agenda of the Islamic Boko Haram in recent times.â "There is no gainsaying the fact that our people are now are living with naked fear and apprehension. Though there are few of us who may like to stay and defend ourselves, the majority of us, particularly, women and children, numbering over three million are jostling to leave the North because unfolding events indicate that the North is no longer safe for easterners. âOhanaeze Ndigbo Kano, thereby, calls on the governors of the Eastern States and Igbo speaking States in the Southeast to provide means of transportation with adequate security to evacuate our brethren who would want to leave because human life is precious and should be protected as such.â

Is history about to repeat itself? May God help Nigeria to 'disintegrate' peacefully if that is the 'handwriting on the wall'. Nigerians are tired of all this bloodshed.
