The leader of the group known as the Peoples Movement for a New Nigeria (PMNN), Yahaya Ndu has said that Igbos living in the North will not be able to defend themselves if things get out of hand.

According to Daily Post, Ndu said “It would be difficult for the Igbo, who could not contain the herdsmen attack against them in Enugu, Abia and other part of the South East, to defend themselves in the northern part of the country.”

The PMNN leader said this while condemning calls by Ohaneze Ndigbo to Igbos in the North to defend themselves.

The National President of Ohaneze Ndigbo Youth Council, Okechukwu Isiguzoro had earlier called on Igbos in the North to defend themselves.

Speaking further, Ndu said “It is wrong for Ohaneze to have said that Igbo people in the North should defend themselves. It is in bad taste and I find it frightening. If Igbo cannot defend themselves when herdsmen attack them in their villages in the South East, is it in the North that they can defend themselves?

“The issue of Biafra should be discussed. Town unions in Igboland and Igbo people living in the North should discuss this. I do not believe in secession and I also do not believe in the injustice against Ndigbo.

“You (Ohaneze) cannot stay in Enugu and ask defenceless Igbo people in the North to defend themselves. The first civil war was not discussed and 50 years after, we want to make the same mistake again.

“Some are saying the Igbo in the North should start returning, if they return, what would they train their children with? What would they feed their family with.”

Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has also warned that there will be reprisal attacks in the South if Igbos living in the North are attacked.
