Northern youth coalition withdraws quit notice to Igbos

The coalition of Northern youth groups

that asked Igbos to leave Northern

Nigeria has temporarily withdrawn its

quit notice.

The groups, under the banner of the

Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, issued

the quit notice in June , asking Igbos to

leave before October 1 and claiming

their demand was in response to

secessionist stance of some pro-Biafran

groups, like Nnamdi Kanu’s IPOB.

The quit notice to the Igbos has been

condemned by most Nigerians including

the federal government, several state

governments and traditional rulers.

The groups announced a suspension of

the quit notice on Thursday at a press

briefing at the Transcorp hotel in Abuja.
