Ohanaeze youths raise alarm over plot to arrest leader

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.
