Allow S’East Go To Avoid Repeat of Civil War, Northern coalition Urges Court

Some members of Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) have appealed to the National Assembly through the Federal High Court in Abuja to facilitate the exit of the Southeast region of the country, in order to avoid a repeat of 1967 to 1970 civil war.

The group pleaded that the exit of the region could be actualised before the ongoing constitutional amendment could be concluded.

They lamented that the past Civil War had brought nothing short of pains and agonies to the country, as millions of lives and property worth billions were lost during the War.

The plaintiffs, led by Nastura Ashir Shariff, Balarabe Rufa’I, Abdul-Aziz Sulaiman and Aminu Adam, explained that their action is informed on the need to curtail violence and destruction as a result of the agitation for secession championed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

They noted that they are strongly against a repeat of the 1967 to 1970 civil war in Nigeria that cost the country millions of lives and property worth billions of naira.

The Attorney General of the Federation, the Senate president, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the National Assembly were listed as defendants in the suit.

It is no longer news that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been agitating for self-determination.

They has over the years bemoaned their state of marginalisation by the government, hence their insistence on the conduct of a referendum.

It would be recalled that Kanu was last week sent back to the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) after his plea to be sent to the Kuje Correctional Centre was turned down at the Abuja Federal High Court.
