The Eze Ndigbo of Kano, Igwe (Dr) Boniface Ibekwe, has appealed to the federal government and the Boko Haram members to dialogue for peace to retun in the restive states of the north.
Dr. Ibekwe also condemned in strongest terms the dastardly killing and maiming of innocent worshippers at the Bayero University, Kano (BUK) old campus and noted that they should know that “they our children.”
He said: “Members of this group should end their hostilities and consider dialogue as a road map to the peaceful resolution of whatever grievances they have.”
The Eze Ndigbo also commended the Joint Task Force (JTF) in handling the situation “and it is in this vein that we wish to call on all Igbo’s and indeed other ethnics groups in Kano not to see the problem as targeted at Igbos but should rather to know that it is a general calamity.”
Addressing reporters in Kano Monday, the Eze Ndigbo said: “Igbos should go about their normal lawful business without fear, molestation or intimidation and always commit the situation in prayer for divine intervention”.
Dr. Ibekwe then commended Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso for his untiring efforts to contain the challenges and for his ability to continue with his infrastructural development in the state, despite distractions.
