- President of Evangelical Church Wining All, ECWA, Rev. Jeremiah Gado has revealed why Nigeria may engulf in more crises
- Rev. Gado said that Nigeria may boil if Arewa youths are not arrested over quit notice threat
- Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) had issued three months quit notice to Igbos living in the region
President of Evangelical Church Wining All, ECWA, Rev. Jeremiah Gado, has stated that Nigeria will never remain the same if the leaders of the coalition of Arewa youths who issued quit notice on Igbos are not arrested.
NAIJ.com gathered that Gado said major crisis would engulf the country.
He said this in a statement issued in Jos Saturday June 24, adding that the quit order was capable of splitting the country if the matter was not properly handled.
Gado said: “Why is it difficult, for instance, to arrest the Arewa youths issuing threats of eviction to the Igbo several days after their arrest order was issued by the Kaduna State government and the Inspector General of Police.
“Yet the recalcitrant youths are walking the streets free and issuing further threats through media briefings held in a government Arewa House facility under a security cover.
“Why has it been difficult to arrest and bring to justice the Fulani herdsmen destroying farms, churches, killing and maiming people while security agencies are always active and responsive to arrest peaceful agitators in the South-east, South-west and some parts of the North. Who is fooling who?
“The call for the eviction of the Igbo by a section of misguided Arewa youths has become even more worrisome due to the backing of some Arewa elders who obviously are the sponsors of the youths issuing the threats.”
“Elders as the name implies are supposed to be the conscience of society and custodians of communal values to provide guidance to the youth.
“When such elders derail and behave in the opposite, the outcome of such society can best be imagined.

“It is important to state that other regions such as the South-west are also clamoring for self-independence and several other calls as the restructuring of Nigeria.
“To single out the Igbo on account of their ethnicity and religion for threat of attack and eviction from the North is a move taken too far.”
NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano state, said Nnamdi Kanu has the potential to win presidency, come 2019. Kwankwaso so the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, may ride on his popularity to contest in the 2019 election.
Kwankwaso (APC, representing Kano Central in the Senate), also admonished South-East leaders to do more in dissociating themselves from Biafra agitation to prove they are truly for Nigeria’s unity.
