All southerners are at the risk of attacks by Almajiris and other restive youths in the north following the quit order issued to Ndigbo by some northern youths. Afenifere has said.

The Yoruba socio-cultural organisation through a statement called for the implementation of the last national conference as a way out of the challenges confronting the country. 

The group noted that the nation has been wobbling and pretending that its unity was settled since the annulment of the June twelve, nineteen ninety three elections believed to have been won by Chief Moshood Abiola.

Afenifere, through the group's spokesman, Yinka Odunmakin, argued that the failure of the security agencies to arrest the groups that issued the threat, indicated that the youths were merely voicing the position of the northern political establishment

Mr. Odumakin said, “We now mark another June 12 amidst an October 1 quit order to Ndigbo by Arewa youths who have also secured endorsement from the Northern Elders Forum, with the Arewa Consultative Forum conceding what they called “the frustrations of the youth” with Ndigbo.

“While the primary targets of the Arewa youths’ quit order are the Ndigbo residents in the North, we are not deceived that when the rubber hits the road, the Almajiris and the Mujaheedin would pick and choose among all southerners in the north for the baying of blood.”
