The President-General of the association, Mr. Ebenezer Chima, made the position of the association known at a joint news conference in
Kano on Friday.

“We want to state categorically here that we, the Igbo residing and doing business in Kano State, unequivocally state that we dissociate ourselves from the activities of IPOB and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu. “We are strongly advocating peace and unity in the
land,” Chima said.

While condemning “in its entirety’ the unfortunate and avoidable crisis in Abia,” he called on all Igbo
resident in the state to remain calm, promising
nothing would happen to them.

According to him, “the state government under the
leadership of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and
security agents have given the assurance of adequate security of our lives and property.

“However, we join the South-East governors, the
leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo and other notable
Igbo leaders, to ask the Federal Government to
address the issues of equality and even distribution of our common wealth.

“This, we believe, will bring an end to the agitations
in the country.’’ On his part, President of Ethnic Community Leaders Association in the state, Dr. Jimpat Ayelangbe, assured all non-indigenes of adequate security of their lives and property.

He said the assurance stemmed from the meetings
they had with various leaders and security agencies in the state.
“ECLAK got the mandate to speak to the media by allaying fears of our people over the concern of their lives and property.

“ECLAK is interested in a united Nigeria because we
believe that those not living in their states of origin
should not contribute to disorganise the country.’
