The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) in a meeting held yesterday accused Southerners of provoking people in the North so that they can react and put the nation in state of crisis.
The National Chairman Chief Audu Ogbeh made this known while speaking extensively on the things bedeviling the northern part of Nigeria. He spoke extensively on terrorism in the north as he wondered why Boko Haram and Banditry are prevalent in the region.
Chief Audu Ogbeh said that something must be done quickly so as to reduce the rate of insecurity in the region, adding that the North is sick. He highlighted cases of kidnapping by bandits and the killing of northerners in the south, and called for a good cordial relationship between the north and other regions in Nigeria.
He likened the killing of northerners in the south and the agitation by secessionists as a means of sparking reactions from the north so as to cause crisis in Nigeria. The National Chairman said that no amount of inhumane treatment melted on northerners in the south will make them react violently that may make the nation go up in flames.
