Arrest Nnamdi Kanu Now, Yoruba Youths Tells Osinbajo

The Yoruba Youth Congress (YYC) and the Coalition of Southwest Youths groups have called on the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to order the immediate arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.

The groups accused Kanu of taking Nigerians for granted, stressing that the IPOB leader is attempting to provoke the Nigerian youths.

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, the state capital, said the groups are also aligning with the position of the Coalition of Northern Youth which asked the United Nations (UN) to see the IPOB as a terror group.

The Yoruba groups warned Kanu not to provoke violence in the country, noting that nobody has the monopoly of violence.

Adepoju disclosed that concerted efforts are being made at dousing rising temper of over 25million Yoruba Youths who are not happy with the war like attitude of Kanu and his men.

He said “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.

    These Yoruba Youths do not supprise anybody, we have already known about their duplicious nature. The tiger does not change its sports, it remains the same forever, so is the Yoruba.
    I am not Igbo, but as an Itsekiri, it rankles me when Yoruba makes claims about their closeness with the Itsekiris, it an outrage. If the Yoruba are too much a coward to break from the bondage called Nigeria, why persecute the Igbos?
    The Yorubas are acomplices in the corrupt Nigeria system. The SS/SE must decide their future and there is nothing the Yorubas and their Fulani masters can do to stop it.
