The Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has called on the people of the Southeast and South-south to leave the north following threats by Northern Elders’ Forum and Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) asking the Fulani people to leave the South and return to the north.

In a statement signed and issued by its Chief Press Secretary, Comrade Kufre Obot, the group appealed to the people of their region to return home or risk been killed on after the expiration of the July 30 ultimatum by CNG.

BNYL claimed that it was because of its threats to retaliate any unfortunate incidence against the people of the old Eastern region that prompted the call by Northern elders and CNGs for Fulani to leave the South.

Speaking in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, Comrade Obot said the group met at a closed door meeting to react to statements by Northern elders and youths, which has made them to call on the Easterners to return before July 30.

“We met at a closed door today after reading the statement from northern elders and their CNGs; we resolve to equally call on the Igbo, Efik-Ibibio, Ejagham, Ogoni, Uhrobo, Ijaw and other tribes from the South-south to return home before the 30th ultimatum only if their life is more precious to them than their business, they should return and at least observe if the ultimatum is a joke or not before concluding,” the statement said.

The BNYL vowed not to tolerate killing of any easterner in the North even as it stated that the call for Fulani to leave the South was a signal stating that “it is a signal and we are ready to face it in whatever ways they want.”
