In a video obtained by Arewa Agenda, the scholar who noted that the community located in Zungeru Road, behind Kano Airport said, “they have their massive gates, security and other facilities that prevent other people, especially indigenes from accessing. Government should not allow such to be happening when we can’t go to Onitsha, Aba or Enugu an create an exclusive place for Northerners or Muslims like that.”

Dr. Abdallah, known for his clear stance on topical issues, called on the state Government to promote policies that will harmonize the Hausas and Igbos in the area and bring about peaceful coexistence.

“We should not have such exclusive places, government should ensure there are mosques there and Kano indigenes should be given access to build houses too in such highbrow area,” Gadon Kaya insisted.

Arewa Agenda learnt that many people are heeding the call.

Speaking on the matter, a Political Commentator and Secretary Arewa Youths Council (AYC), Bello Shehu States that, “It dangerous, especially when some ethnic groups are clamouring for separation from the rest of the country to now allow one tribe to exclusively occupy an highbrow. Even though Arewa people are denied such privileges of owning business premises and estates in Igboland, we need to mix up to promote national unity, tolerance and brotherhood. That way, we can appreciate each other more and live peacefully together.”

“During the unfortunate Nigerian civil war led by the late Ikemba of Nnewi Chief Colonel Odumegwu Ojukwu (Rtd) Igala land was attacked and severally bombed. The people that attacked us years ago cannot come around now and claim we are part of them.

“We are not part of Biafra. We will never be part of Biafra. Though we do business with them and even intermarry, that does not mean we are part of them.
