You Will Soon See Us – Southeast Youths Fume Over Attacks On Igbos, Shops, Churches

The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, the apex socio-political youth group in the South East has warned against further attacks on Igbos residing in Sokoto State and their shops.

There was a report that pandemonium broke out in some parts of Sokoto State on Saturday following a violent protest by Muslim youths who stormed the streets to demand the release of the suspected killers of Deborah Samuel.

Recall that Deborah, a 200-level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto, was lynched on Thursday for allegedly insulting Prophet Mohammed.

After outcries across the country condemning the incident, some of the perpetrators were arrested by the state’s police command.

A large number of Muslim youths stormed several streets destroying churches and shops belonging to Igbosas a result of the arrest.

COSEYL in a statement by its President-General, Goodluck Ibem, warned that any further move to attack Igbos and their properties would cause them to take a reprisal attack.

These attacks on law-abiding and innocent Igbo businessmen who have done nothing wrong to warrant such vicious and barbaric attack on them is uncalled for and we condemn it in its entirety.

We warn the Sokoto indigenes to stop the attack and destruction of Igbo properties and goods forthwith.
Nobody has the monopoly of violence, they should stop or else, they will see us soon.

The same way Igbos are living in Sokoto doing their legitimate business is also the same way Sokoto indigenes are living in the South doing their business.

The coalition called on the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal to immediately arrest and prosecute those involved in the destruction of Igbo properties and churches.
