At a press conference in Enugu, Ohanaeze leaders, shocked fedral government by saying that Igbo land belongs to Igbos and that the Hausas should go home.
Ohanaeze leader, who spoke at a conference in the multicultural city of Enuhu, said Igbo is “morally responsible” for helping “ Hausa men really facing danger against their life”.
“Receive them, help them, educate them… but ultimately they should develop their own northern part,”
He added that he believes “Igbo land belongs to the Igbo people and that “they [the Hausa’s]ultimately should rebuild their own state”.
His remarks caused anger amongst the Northerns residing in Enugu who were present at the Enugu press conference on Friday.
