Following the call by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) asking people from the southeast to observe a sit-at home on October 1st, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council said the order should be disregarded.
Also, Ohanaeze called on southeast governors to disband Market Unions in the region that adhered to the sit-at-home directive of the Pro-Biafra group.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by its secretary-general of the group, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike.
Specifically, Ohanaeze distanced the Igbo youths from the IPOB directive. The group also reiterated its stand on indivisible Nigeria.
Meanwhile, they warned security agencies against extra-judicial killing of innocent Igbo youths in whatever guise.
Going further, they urged agitating youths not to take laws into their hands by challenging armed security agents.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that apparently dissatisfied with the way things are going in the country, a former chief of defence staff, Lt. General Alani Akinrinade, has sent a crucial message to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The retired army chief advised the president to allow the restructuring of Nigeria now otherwise there may soon be no country.
Legit.ng gathered that he issued the warning on the night of Monday, September 14, at a dinner in Osogbo, the capital of Osun state in honour of the visiting chief of army staff, Lt General Tukur Buratai.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that five apex socio-political groups in the country fired back at the presidency over its reaction to former president Olusegun Obasanjo's statement on the state of the nation.
