Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has called on Nigerians to “prepare for the worse”, after the Northern Elders’ Forum backed call by Arewa Youths, for Igbos to leave the North before October 1.
“The Northern Elders Forum has backed call by the Arewa Youths for Igbos to leave north. We should brace ourselves and prepare for the worse.
“We are about to enter a season of carnage, chaos and anomie. God deliver our people from those who wish to drink our blood and eat our flesh,” Fani-Kayode wrote on his Twitter page.
Spokesperson of the Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF, Ango Abdullahi on Friday backed the call by the Coalition of Northern Youth Groups asking Igbos to vacate the region in three months.
Abdullahi, while addressing reporters in Zaria, Kaduna State berated Northern Governors’ Forum for disowning the group, an action he described as a “disappointment.”
The NEF spokesperson said it was hypocritical for the Igbos to continue to live in other parts of the country while agitating for Nigeria’s break up.
