We’re Ready For Reprisal Action When Next Northerner Come Under Attack In S/East – CNG A coalition of Northern Group (CNG) on Monday declared that the North would no longer remain idle when next its people are deliberately targeted and massacred in the south-east, or anywhere in Nigeria. Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, CNG spokesperson who made this known to journalists at a press conference held in Kano State said that the power to release IPOB separatist leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kano only wrested, and vested in the judiciary. Suleiman said, “the north will no longer remain idle when its people are deliberately targeted and massacred while the perpetrators are shielded by criminal tribal bigots who pose as leaders.” Abdul-Azeez Suleiman who was flanked by top chieftains of CNG at the conference further demanded the arrest and prosecution of Igbo leaders angling to secure Nnamdi Kanu’s release from the gulag to be treated as an accomplice. He said “we demand the arrest and prosecution of those Igbo leaders, and any other group, or individual who are involved in this complicity to get Chief Kanu freed. The Northern Group at the tension soaked conference tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to reclaim his statesmanship by refusing to be cajoled into interfering with the standard principle of separation of power. Mr Suleiman warned President Buhari that the North has realized that he places a premium on the pursuit for a vote than he does for the sanctity of the lives of Northerners, and security personnel who stake their lives in the service to the nation. The fire-spitting Northern group warned that “any attempt by President to accede to the demand to release, without prosecuting Kanu will inadvertently reduce Nigeria to a lawless state where criminals of all shades will commit crimes against the country and ask their traditional rulers and other regional or tribal leaders to press for their release “ The Coalition of Northern Group stated that ” from 2017 to 2020, at the peak of IPOB’s dangerous campaign, Kanu had instigated the killing of more than 1230 Northern Nigeria citizens living in parts of the south-east. “ Suleiman revealed that “several millions worth of businesses, properties and valuable assets belonging to Northerners and citizens of other regions were destroyed across the Southeastern cities on the instructions of Nnamdi Kanu within the same period “.
