Boko Haram: Ohanaeze Evacuates 500,000 Igbo From Kano by manchy7531: 3:45pm On Feb 21, 2012
In the aftermath of the January 20 bomb attacks that rocked the commercial city of Kano when militants of Boko Haram sect struck, a total of 500,000 Igbo in the state are known to have been evacuated to their respective country homes in the South-East.

This was confirmed at the weekend by the Kano State chairman of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Tobias Idika, who also revealed that the exercise was continuous.

He told our correspondent in a chat that so far, the figure represents mostly women and children who were traumatised by the devastating Boko Haram attack

According to Idika, over 300,000 of the 500,000 evacuees were handled by Ohanaeze through the Igbo Elders Forum, adding that they dispatched six for the operation.

The remaining 200,000 he said, sponsored their respective movements at different times during the crisis, adding that the exercise was very successful.
He recalled how hundreds of women and children eager to flee the troubled states following the bomb blasts slept on bare floors at the Ohanaeze secretariat in Kano for over a week waiting to be evacuated.

“We remain grateful to the Igbo Elders Forum for this wonderful support and Ndigbo in Kano especially, the beneficiaries have also sent their gratitude to the Forum, for coming to their aid at the time of need.

Idika said at the moment, the evacuation exercise has been suspended to enable them evaluate the situation which outcome will decide the next step to take.

if this report is anything thing to go by then i think the igbo leaders must be commend.they must not stop until they have evacuated all the igbos(SS & SE) not just in Kano but in all the trouble cities of the north. am also sure they will render help to some SW,SS citizens trapped in kano.

If all igbos are evacuated from all the trouble states in the north. I wonder what Hausa/Fulani will be doing in SS & SE.

Well the Igbos are not totally gone.That aside the Northerners to left in this two areas(SE,SS).Even at that they would hardly make up the number of Igbos migrating.Yes alot of northerners have come home and more are still moving too.Quietly just like how the Igbos transfered over 300k Igbos from kano alone!!!! We still have more igbos up north without doubt and in terms of ratio you could say far more igbos here than northerners there.If you include Nigeriens and chadians o!!Otherwise they are almost a 50:1 ratio.Igbos just have an issue staying back home and that is why they litter all parts of the world.So for now a northerner would rarely consider going south compared to an Igbo trader going north.

Good development, let them go and leave us with our Almajiri nation so they'll no longer have any more reason to blackmail us or insult the North and religion of Islam.
In fact this idea of splitting the country doesn't seem so bad after all; let it begin now, let everybody find his square root and go back to his fatherland and develop at their own pace according to their own value system. No big deal really.

500k at a go? Mehn, thats pretty much. But this is only about 18% of the supposed igbos in kano.

How did they arrive at this figure and also how were such a large number transported in a short period of time without anyone knowing.

Just asking is all.

. . . .500,000, thats too much for the land in East to support. . . . If nobody knew or noticed their migration from North to East, then guess what? No one will know as the refugees slowly trick in from East to West to join other refugees living in Yorubaland.

Yorubas tolerate nonsense, I tell you! Our own children are insufficiently provided for because we have too much mouths to support. Meanwhile ibo children in East are not so overwhelmed. In another 20yrs, their children will be at top of the pole because of this imbalance and overburdening of facility and infrastructure per million headcount in our urban cities. This idea of omoluabi is the wrong treatment for a political challenge. Hausa understand it very well . . . "I welcome you but not at the detriment to my own children and society".

Really? Almost 1/4th of the people in Anambra State live in Onitsha? Come on now . . . . lol


Even a state like anambra will feel the impact of 100,000 migrants running back to it in a matter of weeks. So my question still stands, were are the 500 thousand people ohaneze blockheads claim migrated back?
Re: Boko Haram: Ohanaeze Evacuates 500,000 Igbo From Kano by BlackPikiN(m): 12:59am On Feb 22, 2012
There are thousands of people returning back to the east.

That I can conform.
Re: Boko Haram: Ohanaeze Evacuates 500,000 Igbo From Kano by Kobojunkie: 1:02am On Feb 22, 2012
Where are they? Where is the list of these 1000s Where dem dey? Abi this no simple enough again??

During Christmas when 1000s actually migrate back to Ibo land, the effect is felt across the towns and states. And this happens not just in Iboland. So, where is the evidence of these 1000s moving back to Ibo land?
Re: Boko Haram: Ohanaeze Evacuates 500,000 Igbo From Kano by DuduNegro: 1:19am On Feb 22, 2012

Stop playing hard to get noticed.
In this world and in the coming world, you will never be Igbo.

They settled down in the south. Do you think all the returnees will relocate to the east?

Fagge in kano is almost becoming a ghost town as the threat to life continues.

efulefu, why is ibo in fagge? even in peaceful times Fagge is a hotbed, much more when the city is gripped by crisis. You are not the casualty of Hausa hatred. . . you are casualty of greedines for money by any means and anywhere possible. of all places to live in Kano, ibo go live in Fagge and you come complain of slaughter, what else would you expect to get at that place?

Another lie . . . its not easy to absorb half a million people to an already very dense environment (the SE is the densest, in terms of population per unit area, among all regions) without trouble and anarchy. Only the unintelligent would be deceived by this[b] PROPAGANDA![/b]
