•Protesting Abuja indigenes . . . on Tuesday.

Barely a week after the Coalition of Arewa Youths issued a 90-day ultimatum asking Igbos living in the North to leave, the ‘original inhabitants’ of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) seem to have joined the bandwagon as they on Tuesday threatened a quit notice to all other residents of the territory if their demands are not met by the government.

The natives, who besieged the Three Arms Zone naked, stated that the threat became necessary given the level of what they described as “gross marginalisation” in federal appointments and “deprivation” of their rights over the years.

Working under the auspices of a group, FCT Natives Marginalised Youths, the protesters promised to carry out their threat if government failed to hearken to their warning by addressing alleged persistent injustice against the natives of Abuja who they said have become internally displaced people (IDPs) in their ancestral land.

However, unlike their Arewa Youths Coalition counterparts, the FCT Natives Marginalised Youths did not give any ultimatum as to when the quit notice would be issued.

‎Determined to be heard, the protesters, who carried placards and other traditional communication tools, defied security operatives who barricaded the entrance to the National Assembly, insisting on occupying the complex.

Some of the inscriptions on their placards read, ‘Non-inclusion in the FEC’; ‘Natives demand constitutional right’; ‘We are tired of starvation’; ‘We need native minister’, etc.

Amongst their grievances is the exclusion of what they referred to as “a real” native of the FCT in the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
