The Coalition of Southwest Youths groups and the Yoruba Youth Congress (YYC) have urged acting President Yemi Osinbajo to order the arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

The group said Nnamdi Kanu is attempting to provoke Nigerian youths.

Speaking to newsmen in Ondo state, the Chairman of the Coalition of Southwest Youths groups, Prince Dapo Adepoju, said the groups are also aligning with the position of the Coalition of Northern Youth which asked the United Nations (UN) to see the IPOB as a terror group.

He also warned the IPOB leader not to provoke violence in the country, stressing that nobody has the monopoly of violence.

”We are surprised that despite the fact that the Northern youths who earlier issue quit notice to the Igbo’s has made a U-turn on their decision, Kanu and his men are still moving around spreading hate speeches

”We are tired as we are losing patience, in as much as we understand that Kanu does not have the support of the majority of the Igbo’s, we felt its high time the security operatives do their job in getting him arrested

”Kanu does not have monopoly of violence as efforts are being made at dousing rising temper of over 25million Yoruba youths who are not happy with the war-like attitude of Kanu and his men

”We therefore use this medium to call on the acting president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo to order the arrest of Kanu,” Adepoju said.
