EXPLOSIVE SECURITY REPORT: Why It Is In The Safety Of ALL Nigerians, For Us Not To Arrest Any Northern Youth Yet

Report reaching Post-Nigeria, has revealed that the Presidency based on a recent security advice, is weighing its options on how to tackle the Coalition of Northern Youths, and the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for the actualization of the Republic of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

Top sources said yesterday, that the Security Agencies have advised the Federal Government to embrace dialogue, and give the two groups final warning instead of arrest, outright crackdown, and revocation of Kanu’s bail.

It was learnt that some of the options were presented at the sessions which the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, had with the Northern and Igbo Leaders, a few days ago.

At the said meeting, the Presidency was briefed that: “Some war mongers and divisive elements”, were behind the Northern youths and IPOB, and that the objective of “these elements”, is to destabilise the country.

The security reports indicated that some influential Northern Leaders and groups, have provided back up support for the coalition of Northern youths.

They also cited intelligence reports on how key Igbo Leaders, including Senators, had been paying homage to the IPOB Leader, before the group organised a successful sit-at-home protest.

The Security Chiefs, “strongly advised the government to exercise caution, but to read the Riot Act to all the groups, and their sponsors, with a final warning.”

“The government has discovered that some forces were behind the coalition of Northern youths and IPOB. Those behind the ill-fated quit notice to Igbo have been identified, but the government is employing tact in managing the situation”, a top Presidential source said.

Security report available to the government, pointed to the fact that these Northern youths were most likely running errands for some war mongers, he further stated.

He said there is a firm belief in government that the arrest of the Northern youths could trigger spontaneous violence in the North.

He said the sponsors of the Northern youths, were found to be reacting to the successful sit-at-home protest by the IPOB.

“Some Northern leaders were said to be angry that after the IPOB protest, the leader of the organisation neither had his bail revoked nor was he re-arrested for treason”, he said.

They further advised against the revocation of bail for the IPOB Leader, despite the fact that the protest by the organisation, was perceived as an “act of treason.”

They said arresting Kanu might lead to more security challenges in the South-East, which could heat up the polity.

The Security Chiefs however, recommended dialogue with Northern and Igbo Leaders, where a Riot Act will be read, and final warning given to all “divisive groups.”

Next week, the Acting President is expected to hold a joint meeting with South-East leaders and their colleagues from the North.

After the meeting, and once “the dialogue template has been followed satisfactorily”, the government may clamp down on any hate-inclined group in the country.

“The government will no longer spare the rod in arresting leaders of groups undermining the peace and unity of the country. Also, all their sponsors will face the wrath of the law.

“There will be constant surveillance on all pressure and sensitive socio-cultural organisations nationwide”, the highly placed source disclosed.

Recall, that Sixteen Northern youth groups, under the aegis of Coalition of Northern Youths, on June 6, gave the Igbos up to October 1, to vacate the three geo-political zones in the North.
