Besides, from the Arewa group press conference held in Abuja,  urged the UN to intervene by initiating the process of referendum as a way of settling the agitation by the IPOB.

The group’s spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, who spoke on behalf of the coalition, said,  “As  law-abiding citizens, we wrote officially to the United Nations and urged for its urgent intervention.

“That the UN invokes the relevant statutes to which Nigeria is a signatory to pronounce Kanu and IPOB as terror outfits, proscribe their activities and initiate criminal actions against them.

“That Since it is becoming all the more obvious – by the way, IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu enjoy massive support from the Igbo back home – that the issue of the drive for Biafra nation is still a boiling issue, we urge the UN to intervene by initiating processes for a peaceful referendum as the only option to finally settle the Biafran issue.”
