Regarding the quit notice issued to Igbos residing in the North by Arewa youths, Federal government has affirmed that whoever is found wanting would be brought to book after investigations.
According to Abubakar Malami, Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation; “The way the government works is that a lot of considerations naturally come into play. One is investigation, which is not time-bound; two, security consideration; three, expeditious determination and consideration of public interest.
But one thing that is certain is that the government is ever alive to its responsibilities and whoever is found wanting, regardless of the length of time, will definitely be brought to book.
That is the way it works. I assure you that the government will, within the context of its responsibilities, work to ensure good governance, justice, peace and fairness in the nation.”
Recall that the Arewa group had called-off the quit notice which the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) rejected.
