IPOB: Northern NGO calls for restraint

A group, Arewa Development Support Initiative (ADSI), has called on all youths in the north to continue maintaining peace in view of the current happenings in the country.

The group made the call against the backdrop of the attacks being carried out by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), on both governmental institutions and northerners in the South East.

In a statement on Sunday signed by ADSI’s president, Hajiya Khuraira Musa, the group stated that it firmly believed in the peaceful co-existence and progress of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It said that its main vision and mandate is to see all Arewa citizens working together for the betterment of the region and Nigeria in general irrespective of religion, political affiliation or tribal inclination.

It also admonished youths in the region to steer clear of trouble.

The group stated, “Please, keep a listening ear to our elders and leaders and duly follow the rule of law to avoid any involvement in any kind of violence in whatever guise or form.

“The best way for progress and prosperity in a democratic society is through peaceful dialogue and tolerance in the face of provocation.

“Violence can only breathe destruction and pains, not progress.”

It, however, called upon the federal government to do everything within its powers to protect the lives and property of all citizens.
