The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) has given a warning Igbos following the of Ahmed Gulak, a former presidential aide.

CNG on Sunday said the can no longer continue coexist people of Igbo extraction in Nigeria.

CNG said the of Ahmed Gulak, a former aide ex-President Goodluck Jonathan in Imo State, was an indication that the can no longer coexist southeasterners in Nigeria.

Spokesman of CNG, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, said Gulak’ is a wider plan by the people of Igbo extraction to replicate the ugly events of 1966.

In a statement by Suleiman, CNG claimed that people of the Southeast are funding “gangs” like the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security Network (ESN) to cause havoc.

CNG said it is no longer in doubt that the “violent rascality by the IPOB, the ESN and assortments of armed Igbo gangs is funded, fully supported and emboldened by every component of the Igbo society at home and in the Diaspora.”

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

“The coordinated incessant attacks on formations in Imo, Ebonyi, Aba, Ibadan, , Anambra and most recently the headquarters in and Sunday’ 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 reason why we cannot be reasonably expected to live with them as a nation any longer.”

Suleiman also reiterated its rejection of the just concluded public hearing on constitution review organized by the , stressing that it came at the wrong time and with the wrong motive.

He said the constitution review was just another exercise in futility with the sole motive of diverting the huge public funds allocated for it as with all previous attempts.

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