Gulak’s murder: Plan by Igbo to replicate events of 1966 – Northern group
The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, said assassination of Ahmed Gulak, a prominent northern leader, is part of a wider plan by the Igbo to replicate the ugly events of 1966.
The Coalition made the allegation in a statement signed by its Spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, adding that coordinated incessant attacks on police formations in Imo, Ebonyi, Aba, Ibadan, Enugu, Anambra and most recently the police headquarters in Kwara are part of the plan.
Suileman said that was the more reason why it cannot be reasonably expected to live with the Igbo as a nation any longer.
CNG faulted the zonal meetings of the Senate Constitution Review Committee, saying it “ is equally insensitive for Senate to come up with such dubious exercise at a time the whole of the northern region is literally abandoned at the mercy of a rampaging insurgency and sundry security issues designed to continuously weaken the region politically and pauperize it economically.’
“We find it quite unreasonable for leaders to contemplate any form of constitution review that will involve an unwilling Igbo population that is violently agitating for secession by attacking people of other regions, killing security personnel at will and destroying the nation’s public and security assets.”
“Reasonably, those who call themselves custodians of our laws ought to concentrate first on a process for the separation of the irritating Igbo secessionists from the rest of the country before contemplating a future Constitution,” CNG said.
The CNG said it is no longer in doubt that the “violent rascality by the IPOB, the ESN and other assortment of armed Igbo gangs is funded, fully supported and emboldened by every component of the Igbo society at home and in the Diaspora.”
“The CNG considers it an insult to our collective sensibilities and ordinary rules of decency to expect other parts of the country, particularly the North to continue to coexist as one country with the Igbo as federating partners.”
