‘Arrest Nnamdi Kanu now’ – Yoruba Youth Groups tell Osinbajo
Chairman of the Coalition of Southwest Youths groups who doubles as the National President of Yoruba Youths Congress, Prince Dapo Adepoju who addressed reporters in Akure, called on Nigeria’s Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to arrest the leader of the Indigeneous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.
According to him, Nnamdi Kanu is provoking Nigerian youths with his utterances, and also taking everyone for granted.
Adepoju also backed move by the Coalition of Northern Youth, in making United Nations (UN) declare IPOB a terror group. He further stressed that nobody has the monopoly of violence, and directed that the rising temper of over 25million Yoruba Youths should be pacified.
“We decided to keep mute all along as we felt Kanu and his men will allow for dialogue.
“But we are surprised that despite the fact that the Northern youths who earlier issue quit notice to the Igbo’s has make a U-turn on their decision, Kanu and his men are still moving around spreading hate speeches
“We are tired as we are losing patience, in as much as we understand that Kanu does not have the support of the majority of the Igbo’s, we felt its high time the security operatives do their job in getting him arrested
“Kanu does not have monopoly of violence as efforts are been made at dousing rising temper of over 25million Yoruba Youths who are not happy with the war like attitude of kanu and his men
“We therefore use this medium to call on the acting president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to oder the arrest of Kanu
“We equally support the letter addressed to the UN by the coalition of Nothern Youths to declare IPOB a terror group” he said.
Adepoju also called on president Mohammadu Buhari’s administration to call for national Youths Confab, saying it will go a long way in itemizing the issues affecting the Nigerian youths.
