Kaduna Governor, Nasir el-Rufai has ordered the arrest of members of the Northern groups that gave the Igbo three-month ultimatum to leave the North.
el-Rufai, who gave the order through his spokesman, Samuel Aruwan, condemned the action of the northern groups and assured every Kaduna resident that “nobody can tamper with their freedom to reside where they choose to’’.
“The Kaduna State Government took exception to the fact that the Northern youths did their irresponsible press conference in Kaduna.
“This government has been consistent in taking action to punish hate speech and incitement.
“People who may feel unhappy about irresponsible comments or actions that have taken place in other states must know that two wrongs cannot make a right and they cannot use our state to do or say things that threaten the peace.
“Kaduna state government has therefore ordered the arrest, investigation and prosecution of the signatories to the statement.’’
