It was shocking, as the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, called on President Muhamamdu Buhari, to crush the Igbos who are behind the alleged attack of the Hausa community, in the South-East.
This came against the backdrop of purported attacks by the Igbos against the Hausas residing in Aba, two days ago. The attack came in response to the alleged Military invasion of Nnamdi Kanu’s residence, in Umuahia.
Ganduje made the call, while addressing the leadership of Northern Youth Coalition, who paid him a courtesy visit in his office, in Kano.
Ganduje said: “if those behind the attack were not punished, such incident will keep recurring.”
Ganduje who noted that two wrongs do not make a right, warned against actions or inaction, that would lead to reprisal attacks.
According to Ganduje: “The Federal Government should quickly investigate the violent attacks on Hausa community in Rivers, and ensure that those behind it are not only punished, but also sanctioned, to serve as a deterrent.
“If those behind the attack are not punished, the case will keep recurring, and possibly lead to something else.
“IPOB is wrong in their violent response to issues, and this cannot be a yardstick upon which somebody could use to cause mayhem against innocent citizens.”
“This disposition of the Northern Youths, show that they stand by one united Nigeria, devoid of rancour and instability, and this should be commended and also be emulated”, he said.
