Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council has raised alarm over plots by security agents to arrest its National Leader, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, warning of the dire consequences of such action.
The National Secretary of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, who raised the alarm yesterday in Umuahia when the leadership of the youth body visited Nnamdi Kanu, said the plot to arrest Isiguzoro was due to OYC’s support for Biafra independence.
He said the plot was heightened because of the recent letter by OYC to the United Nations demanding referendum for Biafra.
According to him, those behind the plot are working with some dishonest Igbo leaders and politicians who feel threatened by the position of OYC on Biafra agitation.
He said that the safety of the Igbo leaders recruited by the Northern cabal would no longer be guaranteed in Igbo land should anything happen to Isiguzoro.
The OYC Scribe advised Igbo leaders cooperating with the enemies to execute the plot to retrace their steps or be ready to relocate from Igbo land.
Nnabuike said that the leadership of OYC was in Umuahia to identify with Kanu on his quest for Biafra restoration.
He disagreed with the call for restructuring Nigeria, saying that it is a ploy to scuttle the agitation for Biafra.
He said he was suspicious of the sudden support for restructuring by Northern leaders, insisting that Nigeria cannot restructure under a Northern leader.
OYC insisted that if Nigeria must restructure, it has to be under a Southern leader, particularly an Igbo as President.
“It is either Nigerian President of Igbo extraction in 2019 or referendum”.
He wondered why the security agents have failed to arrest the Arewa Youths who issued quit notice to Ndigbo living in the North, saying that Nigeria is set to collapse.
Nnabuike said the United Nations had confirmed the receipt of the letter addressed to it by OYC over the quit notice by Northern youths.
