Quit notice on Igbos: Ben Bruce reacts to ultimatum

 Ben Murray Bruce, Senate Committee Chairman on Privatization,has reacted to the notice of eviction issued by Northern groups that Igbos should vacate their region in three months.
The Senator who is representing Bayelsa East in the upper chamber said all those behind the threat should not go unpunished.

Bruce, who took to his twitter handle wrote: “Those who issued the ultimatum against South-easterners did a severe damage to the unity of Nigeria and must not be treated with kid gloves!.”
Recall that the spokesperson of the Northern Coalition group, Coalition of Northern Youths, CNY, Abdulaziz Suleiman, had ordered Igbos to vacate the north.
Speaking on Tuesday, Suleiman had said the entire Northern Nigeria was tired of coexisting with the Igbos and asked that, “all Igbos currently residing in any part of Northern Nigeria are hereby served notice to relocate within three months and all northerners residing in the East are advised likewise.
“The persistence for the actualization of Biafra by the unruly Igbo of South-Eastern Nigeria has lately assumed another alarming twist which involved the forceful lockdown of activities and denial of other people’s right to free movement in the South-East by the rebel Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its overt and covert sponsors.”
