Orji Kalu vows 'war' if Igbo are attacked

Former Abia State governor, Orji Uzor Kalu has said that the Igbo will only leave the north if asked by serious minded people. He made mention of this on AIT's People Politics and Power programme hosted by Okhiria Agbosunremi.

According to him, he would lead a war should any of the youths attempt to actualize the ultimatum.

“Anybody that touches any Igbo man in terms of saying that we should quit; the country will go into war, and I will lead the war if Igbos are touched. I do not believe that in 2017 we should be attacking each other. The quit notice means nothing. No reasonable northern elder will do that. Did Adamu Ciroma sign? Did Babangida sign? Did Abdulsalam sign? Aliko Dangote? When you say northern elders, I don’t know whether Sultan of Sokoto, Emir of Kano, Emir of Zazzau and his likes are asking us to quit. If all these people come out and say we should quit, we will quit. We are not afraid of quitting, we have a place to go. But Nigeria’s unity is more important”he said.

He also described the call for secession by the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, as a waste of time.

Orji Kalu reacted to this because the Arewa Youth Organization had issued a letter to the Igbos living in the North to vacate on before October 1.
