Quit Notice: Alaigbo Development Foundation has a message for Arewa Youths

Quit Notice: Alaigbo Development Foundation has a message for Arewa Youths
An Igbo group, Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF), has said it would drag the leadership of Arewa Youths to the International Criminal Court (ICC), The Hague,  and a Nigerian court, to answer questions on its quit notice to Igbo living in the North.

Also to be included in the proposed suit are their sponsors, including undisclosed top government officials in the north.

The group said the legal action was aimed at mounting judicial pressure “to restrain Arewa youths, their sponsors and supporters, including officials of the Northern governments, from executing their threat of quit notice and take-over of property owned by Ndigbo in the Arewa territories by October 1.”

In a statement issued to newsmen in Abakaliki and signed by its President, Prof. Uzodinma Nwala, Secretary, Prof. Nath Aniekwu and Chairman, Media and Publicity Bureau, Chief Abia Onyike, the Igbo leaders warned that any attack on any Igbo man, linked to the threat by Arewa groups, will be interpreted by Ndigbo as an announcement for the final dissolution of the Federation.

“ADF is assuring all that never, again, will any Igbo or Biafran property be declared abandoned or confiscated by any authority or group of persons in any part of the country.

“ADF and Ndigbo will fight that in accordance with international laws and conventions.

“ADF insists the only thing that will convince Ndigbo and Biafrans that the federal government is genuinely interested in protecting our lives and property in the North is the immediate enactment of a law by the National Assembly prohibiting confiscation or declaration as abandoned property of Ndigbo or any Nigerian for that matter in any part of the federation before October 1, 2017.

“ADF stands for a peacefully re-negotiated federation based on the principles of self-determination, truth, justice, equity and equality or a peaceful dissolution of Nigeria if the above is not feasible. This is a matter of extreme urgency.”
