The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has divulged that the North can no longer continue to live peacefully with the people of Igbo in Nigeria after the assassination of Ahmed Gulak, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan in Imo State.

Spokesman of CNG, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, released a statement as the group claimed that the murder of Gulak’ is a signal sent by the people of the South East that they want to go down memory lane and replicate the ugly events of 1966.

The statement partly read: “violent rascality by the IPOB, the ESN and other assortments of armed Igbo gangs is funded, fully supported and emboldened by every component of the Igbo society at home and in the Diaspora.”

“The CNG considers it an insult to our collective sensibilities and ordinary rules of decency to expect other parts of the country, particularly the North, to continue to coexist as one country with the Igbo as federating partners.

“The coordinated incessant attacks on police formations in Imo, Ebonyi, Aba, Ibadan, Enugu, Anambra and most recently the police headquarters in Kwara and Sunday’s cold-blooded assassination of Ahmed Gulak, a prominent northern leader, are part of a wider plan by the Igbo to replicate the ugly events of 1966 and the more reason why we cannot be reasonably expected to live with them as a nation any longer.”

“It is equally insensitive for the Senate to come up with such dubious exercise at a time the whole of the northern region is literally abandoned at the mercy of a rampaging insurgency and sundry security issues designed to continuously weaken the region politically and pauperize it economically,”
