Arewa Youths Vow to Shut Down Govt Activities if Nnamdi Kanu is Not Re-arrested

A northern youth group, the Arewa Youths Assembly, AYA, on Wednesday staged a peaceful protest in Abuja following the expiration of the 10-day ultimatum it gave the federal government to re-arrest IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu.

The group had earlier warned that it would shut down government activities if Nnamdi Kanu is not re-arrested.

On Wednesday, Mohammed Salihu, its spokesman, reiterated the group's threat to shut down government activities in Abuja if the acting president fails to act as it had demanded.

“I will be very brief. We organised this peaceful protest as a warning and reminder to federal government to arrest Nnamdi Kanu now.

“The Arewa Youth Assembly will not make a U-turn on its decisions. We intend to carry out our proposed plans and nothing can stop us.

“We will mobilize thousands of youth to shut down government activities in Abuja after our congress meeting next week Saturday,” he said.

A team of police officers monitored the group’s procession from a distance before the group dispersed shortly before noon.
