Anambra youths threaten to shut down Southeast over IPOB, restructuring

Anambra Youth Movement, AYM, on Sunday said it would liaise with youths from other South-East states to shut down the region over the onslaught against the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, ‎as well as refusal of Nigerian government to heed calls for restructuring.

AYM coordinator, Christian Nwakaeze, in a statement in Awka, warned the government to release all detained members of IPOB, and dialogue with the group to ensure lasting peace in the country.

He said while AYM was not calling for secession, it believed that a restructured Nigeria through a referendum would go a long way to making everybody understand why IPOB members were making their demands.

The statement read in part: “It is unfortunate that those in power, who are shouting one Nigeria everyday are even the people who are causing the division through their unpopular decisions.
