“ALL NORTHERNERS SHOULD LEAVE NIGER DELTA BEFORE OCTOBER 1” – MILITANTS REACT TO IGBO QUIT NOTICE

Niger Delta militants have issued an October 1 ultimatum for northerners to leave their region, in response to the quit notice given to the Igbo by some Arewa youth groups. The militants also said the FG should hand over all oil blocs controlled by northerners to the people of Niger Delta.

In a joint statement released on Friday, the coalition of Niger Delta militants also said they will declare the independence of the region on October 1. “A coalition of the Niger Delta militants met today in Port Harcourt to review the recent call by the Arewa Youths groups that the Ndigbo should vacate all the Northern states within three months,” it read.

“We see the declaration by Arewa Youths as a declaration which the northern elders, leaders, political elite, security heads from the North and governors were fully aware of . We demand 100% control of our resources.

We demand that the FG should hand over all oil blocs owned by northerners to Niger Delta indigenes. All the companies operating in such oil blocs/wells should vacate within three months.

The FG should immediately relocate NNPC and all the offices that have to do with oil/gas sector back to Niger Delta states and immediately replace the Group Managing Director with an indigene of Niger Delta.

All northern indigenes working in NNPC and any other board that has anything to do with oil/gas should be sacked with immediate effect. We demand an independent and sovereign Republic of Niger Delta. .

Our money has been used to fund Boko Haram, a problem created by the Northerners in order to use it as conduit pipe to siphon the resources of Niger Delta. On October 1, 2017 we shall declare our independence come rain, come shine. .

We shall take our destiny in our hands and free ourselves from the slavery of the North as they are tired of one Nigeria. From October 1, 2017, we don’t want to see any northerner close to (the) Niger Delta; any attempt to penetrate shall meet fierce resistance. This time, we are not going to play defence, but attack.”

“WE NORTHERNERS ARE READY FOR WAR IF BUHARI DIES” – NIGERIAN FACEBOOK USER ALIYU HASHIM

A Facebook user, Aliyu Hashim has been putting up threatening posts concerning the rumors about President Buhari’s death.

According to him, if President Buhari dies, they won’t spare Niger Delta, Igboland and even Obasanjo. He also went ahead to say the northerners are ready for war to divide Nigeria.

He also insinuated that some northern leaders were killed by southerners, hence, the imminent war on Nigeria as a whole.

Rumours about the death of Buhari has thrown many Nigerians into frenzy. Just recently, a young Onitsha pastor took to social media to wish the president ‘a quick death’.

The man, Mmadukolu Christain Ejike, took to his Facebook page to post that he wished President Buhari can die just like former Nigerian presidents, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and Sani Abacha, who died while on seat.

“Stop Building Mosques And Start Educating Our Daughters” – Emir Of Kano Tells Wealthy Northerners

Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammad Sanusi II called on wealthy Northerners to use the wealth Allah has blessed them with, not only in building mosques but to also educate young girls and discourage their early marriage.

The royalty made the call on Thursday in his keynote address at the 3rd international conference on Islamic Banking and Finance, organised by the International Institute of Islamic Banking and Finance, Bayero University, Kano.

He said,

“I’m just tired of people coming to me to say I want to build a new mosque. You know, we keep building mosques and our daughters are illiterates.

“So, my appeal is that if you really want to help Kano, don’t come to me with a request to build a N300m mosque because I have enough mosques everywhere. And if I don’t have a mosque, I’ll build it myself. If you really want to help, go and educate a girl child in the village.”

According to him, over 50 per cent of girls between the age bracket of 18 and 20 were given out in marriage in this part of the country.

He added that the worrisome dimension of it was that 75 per cent of them could neither read nor write. Calling for a review of laws to prevent early marriage and encourage girl-child education, he said,

“It is not a mere coincidence that this is where you have the highest levels of illiteracy, early marriage, divorce and the highest levels of domestic violence…

“People need to understand that the law has to change. If you look at the medical data on maternal health, girls who get pregnant below the age of 15 are five times as likely to die as girls who get pregnant at the age of 20. Those who get pregnant under 18 are twice as likely to die as those who get pregnant at the age of 20. So, it is important that we look at this issue of early
