Ohanaeze Ndigbo Speaks On Eviction Notice To Northerners In Southeast
The alleged eviction notice reportedly issued to the northerners in Southeast has been described as a mere rumour by the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.
The apex Igbo socio-cultural group in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, said no one is sending away non-indigene from the region.
Ohanaeze warned elites from the two regions shun inflammatory statements and activities that could incite ethnoreligious violence. The group, however, expressed its dissatisfaction with the activities of herdsmen instigating crisis in the region and many other parts of the country.
The statement reads: “Leaders must restrain themselves from sharing the wrong narratives and perspectives. No one is driving Northerners away from the South.
“Ohanaeze calls on Northern leaders to join in the call against lawlessness and impunity by the few who do not represent the majority.
“Surely, no upright and well-meaning citizens will dispute the imperative of having law-abiding citizens who pursue their vocations without harming others.
“We declare that our people demand the observance of due process by all groups. We deplore rash and unlawful retaliatory actions,” the statement added.
