Quit notice: Why we cannot arrest Arewa youths – FG

The Nigerian Government has given reason it cannot arrest members of the coalition of Northern youths.

The Federal Government said the group had already stated that they were misquoted by the media.

 

“Of course they later claimed that the media quoted them out of context. I am very much aware that the DSS invited all of them, held a meeting with them to which they made a statement to the effect that what was reported in the media was not what they said.

“They further wrote to the acting President indicating that they did not make inciting statement as to the issue of violence or forceful ejection of the Igbos in the north.

“However, it was on the basis of that, the northern elders called them to also reaffirm from them that what was reported is not exactly what they meant.”
