Attack Against Northerners In Southern Region Poses Threat To The Country – Unongo
President of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), Dr. Paul Unong, has warned against unprovoked attacks against Northern settlers in the South East and South South region of the country.
Unongo, said this on Thursday at a news conference in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
His words: “The recent unprovoked attacks against Northerners in some states in the South-East and South-South of Nigeria pose an existential threat to the entire country.
‘’NEF notes and commends the restrained and mature reaction of the Northern leadership represented by the 19 Northern state governors, senators, members of the House of Representatives and state assemblies, traditional rulers, religious leaders, community associations, politicians, elders, coalition of youth groups and the millions of citizens of Nigeria from the North who recognized the value of peace, and did not respond against the people from the states from where killings and recent atrocities were perpetrated against Northerners.”
