The Federal Government has been urged to declare Sunday Igboho as a terrorist in view of his activities that they say are inimical to peaceful coexistence of Nigerians.
The Council also expressed concerns on the alleged constant attacks against northerners, especially recent attack in Sasha market of Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo.
Mock Kure, the spokesman of NYCN said in a statement on Sunday that- “The attention of the Northern Youths Council of Nigeria has been drawn to the ongoing Carnage against Northerners, particularly in Sasha Market of Akinyele Local Government, Oyo State, South West Nigeria wherein so many lives were either killed or injured, business premises and vehicles were burnt by Yoruba hoodlums.
“We wish to condemn such an attack in the strongest terms possible and call on security agents to arrest the perpetrators so as to serve as deterrent to would be hoodlums.”
They noted the hidden agenda to expel northerners in the region started with calls on all herdsmen by Ondo Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, to leave Forests Reserves.
“We believe strongly that the inability of the government at all levels to tame the lawless wings of Sunday Igboho and his co-travelers has led to the emergence of his variants, hence, the renewed attacks on settled business people and many others that can’t speak Yoruba at Sasha Market,” the statement explained.
