Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) warned Northerners against traveling to The Southeast because of insecurity there.
Audu Ogbe, National Chairman of ACF, issued the warning on Monday, May 31. In his words, he expressed concern over an increase in attacks and killings against northern residents in the southeast. The travel advisory was issued taking into account the 1966 killings of northern leaders, which, he said, precipitated the civil war.
"The ACF advises all northerners who may wish to travel to the southeast to be very careful. It is important for northerners to weigh the necessity and importance of such travel. According to the statement, "Such trips should not be made unless they are absolutely necessary and of a compelling nature, such as matters of life and death."
A travel advisory follows the murder in Imo state of former presidential aide Ahmed Gulak, who was killed by members of IPOB.
