Northern group alleges IPOB set to hijack June 12 protests

Northern group alleges IPOB set to hijack June 12 protests


The Coalition of Northern Groups alleged that members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are set to turn the protests violent.

The Northern group, who made this known at a press conference in Kaduna on Friday, stated that it will not participate in the planned nationwide protests on June 12.

Spokesperson of the group, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, who addressed journalists on behalf of the group, said it was not in their tradition to jump onto a flight without knowing its actual destination.

“We can’t drag the North into an agenda that is not properly stated and for which we are not even contacted. This is in addition to keeping the North away from the trap set by IPOB to sponsor infiltration in some northern states to turn the protests violent. In the event of any ugly incidence, the anti-North schemers would then hold the region up as the volatile section of the country.

“Another reason for our non-participation of CNG and all our affiliates and organs is the fact that we do not recognise the legitimacy of June 12 as Democracy Day in the first place,” Suleiman said.
