Attacks on northerners in the South were targeted to provoke the north, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has stated.
Deputy Chairman of ACF, Senator Ibrahim Ida, stated this at Arewa House Kaduna on Wednesday while speaking at the Northern People’s Summit.
He said the North must ensure that nobody takes it for granted or underestimates the region as it is the fabric holding the nation together.
According to him: “We are being provoked by the incessant attacks on Northerners in the South.
‘’We must therefore ensure at the end that nobody takes us for granted or underestimate us. Let us change the template, portray our interest in the way we want it.’’
