The Democratic Youth Congress (DYC) yesterday gave the federal government a one-month ultimatum to rearrest IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The youth group said should the federal government fail to rearrest the IPOB leader, it will mobilize the entire Nigerian youths against what it described as Kanu’s treacherous menace.
National chairman of the group, Hon. Kassim Kassim, who stated this in Abuja while briefing journalists said even though the DYC has always stood for peace and the unity of the country, it will not fold its arms and watch one man plung the entire country into another avoidable civil war.
Kassim who is also a member of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly said, “Much as we are solidly in the vanguard for the unity, peace, progress and development of our dear country, Nigeria, we will not sit on the fence and watch the actions of one man plunge our country into avoidable civil war.
“We therefore give the federal government twenty one days to rearrest Kanu who has breached all his bail conditions and is jeopardising the peace and security of this country. Enough is enough. We the Nigerian youths have had enough”.
DYC also commended the South East governors for their timely intervention, which it said had been able to quell the confusion created by Kanu and IPOB.
The group also declared support for Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, who it described as one of its national patrons, for condemning “in totality the activities of Nnamdi Kanu and also demanded for his rearrest in order to avert crisis in the South East and Nigeria at large”.
