Following the recent calls by a Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, that his people should leave the Northern part of the country, he has been given 72 hours to ensure compliance by Arewa youths.
The Northern youths under the aegis of Arewa Youths Assembly (AYA) in a Thursday statement said should Mr Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho fail to comply with the ultimatum, they will have no option than to enforce it.
Mr Adeyemo had yesterday called on his people residing in Northern Nigeria to return home because the Yoruba nation , according to him, have seceded from Nigeria.
“One Mr. Sunday Igboho issued a press statement in which he was quoted as saying enough is enough that the time for Yoruba nation is now, they will no longer accommodate and accept the presence of Northerners,” the speaker of AYA, Mohammed Salihu Danlami, said in the statement.
“This is despite the fact that the constitution of the country has made it crystal clear that any Nigerian can live in any part of the country irrespective of his or her religious and tribal placements.
“Since it is Igboho who wants his people out of the North to form a Yoruba nation, we will make it easy for him by asking Mr. Igboho to provide a means of transportation to convey his people to the southwest.
“We have kept quiet for the sake of peace and for respect of the laws of our country, but as Mr. Igboho rightly said, enough is enough,” he added.
