The leader of the group which asked Igbos living in the North to leave the region before October 1, 2017, Shettima Yerima has dared security operatives to arrest him.

Yerima told Vanguard that he is not hiding, adding that he is ready to be arrested and questioned.

The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum leader also insisted that Igbos must leave the North.

He said “I did not go into hiding and will never go into hiding. We need to put the record straight.

“For now, nobody is looking for me and I am ready to submit myself if I am called. I am not a joker. Nobody is looking for me and I am not hiding anywhere from anybody. I am in my village, I am a Nigerian.

If anybody looks for me, I will submit myself. I am not above the law. I am not on the run.

“Why should I go into hiding? I have a name, I have a face. I am not faceless. I am not hiding anywhere.

“Why should I hide? Where did I go wrong? Somebody wants to go and I said, go, you’re free to go. What is wrong about it?
