The Kaduna State Government yesterday said it had obtained a bench warrant from the court to arrest members of the Coalition of Northern Youths who gave October 1, 2017 as deadline for Ndigbo in the North to quit or be forced out of the region. This was despite the withdrawal of the quit notice by the group.
This was disclosed by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, while addressing news men at the government house in Kaduna.
He assured residents including the Igbo, of their safety, saying that the assurance was given by the Kaduna State Government which commended all residents and communities in the state for their contributions to peace and harmony.
It would be recalled that a coalition of northern groups, including the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum led by Shettima Yerima, had in July given all the Igbo resident in the 19 states of the North a three-month ultimatum to quit or be forced out after the expiration of the October 1, 2017 deadline.
