Meanwhile, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has described the withdrawal of the quit notice issued to Igbos in the northern part of the country by the Arewa youths as inconsequential.
The coalition of northern groups had on Thursday August 24, in Abuja withdrawn its order to all Igbos residing in the north to vacate the region before October 1, 2017.
