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.”

Also, a security analyst who would not like to be mentioned states that, “let those from Kano be allowed to buy land and build houses there. Allowing this to continue will create another Igbo land within Kano and this is not good for security reasons otherwise anything can happen, especially with IPOB’s agitations by Nnamdi Kanu for Biafra Republic and other secessionists

“Once there is a crisis for example, such place can become a direct target, but with the coexistence, it will be difficult to target one tribe.

Mr Omattah who was the former Kogi State Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), stated that the age-long trade relations and intermarriage between Igbos and Igalas should not be enough reason to draft them in to the agitation for Biafra entity.

“We are not part of their agitation. IPOB and Biafra cannot annex Igala nation. We are calling on Igbo people to stop including Igala nation lin their map.

“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.

“We believe in the Nigeria project. We believe in the leadership of Nigeria nation. We have our issues with the Nigeria nation but we are not antagonistic. We will address our issues at the appropriate time, not by carrying guns and fighting. We believe in the corporate existence of Nigeria.This is the position of Igala nation,” he said.

Speaking on the alleged leadership crisis in ICDA, Omattah said the socio cultural group is being repositioned to fulfil its mandate.
