Zamfara: Ohanaeze Calls For Arrest Of Traditional Rulers Promoting Banditry by Blue3k2: 8:08pm On Apr 14
Okechukwu Isiguzoro, President of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, has called for the arrest and prosecution of traditional rulers found culpable in escalating banditry in Zamfara and other states in Nigeria’s North-West.

In an Interview with Punch Newspaper, Isiguzoro said the arrest of culpable traditional rulers would be a major step in tackling the rising violence in the area.

Isiguzoro said: “The recurring death of scores of innocent Nigerians is worrisome. The marching order of President Muhammadu Buhari to security chiefs is timely and there is no need to entertain any fear in ensuring that they quell the rebellion and insecurity in Zamfara.

“The acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu, has identified the nefarious activities of some traditional rulers, who are deeply involved in gold mining, as one of the causes of the rising violence and banditry.

“We are calling for the immediate arrest of these traditional rulers to save Nigerians from bloodshed; otherwise, the North-West could be another North-East.

“We believe President Buhari’s marching order should begin with the immediate arrest and prosecution of these traditional rulers that are promoting banditry across the North.”

The group also warned armed herdsmen involved in the destruction of farmlands in the South-East to vacate immediately, adding that Biafran agitators from the region would soon react if nothing was done.


“The problem in Zamfara is not about banditry alone. You have some socio-economic interests also because of the illegal gold mining activities.

“On the issue of bandits coming from Niger Republic, we believe that there are some cross-border bandits and this makes it a multi-faceted task before us. That is why we believe the efforts should be all encompassing. Of course, we have that effort under the auspices of the Multi-National Joint Task Force in the North-East, and in the North-West region, it will be done also.

“There is this flow of arms coming in from the Maghreb. The porosity of our borders is a problem. Perhaps after the clearance of the bandits’ hideouts in Zamfara, those agencies in charge of the borders must be empowered to prevent such cross-border criminals.”


He added that all the security agencies had ongoing operations in the North-West, which were all in support of Operation Sharan Daji being carried out by the Armed Forces.

Isiguzoro should stop parading himself as president of Ohanaeze youth council, he has long been removed from that position by Ohanaeze President, John Nwodo.

Im impressed this dude knows his stuff. He covered the full spectrum of the issue. Th banditry is done by Nigerians mainly. There could be a few foreigners but you dont read about them doing same in Niger Republic. There needs to be a permanent security build up in region. The bandits just runaway during opperations then return.

Ohaneze, calm down.
So when illegal oil refining and bunkering happens in the south you go arresting the Traditional rulers? No. The navy go bombing those boats and arresting the criminals, let the traditional rulers now come to tell them to stop, then arrest them.

The source has been identified according to security operatives, seal the fronts and arrest the miners. Mop up the arms. They only came to the south and ceased all weapons, even those with licenses, but we still here 'there is free flow of arms' in the North.

Buhari and his boys think they can fool us.

Ohaneze, be there threatening with Biafran agitators until the fulanis finish your people and turn your regions to islamic territories - it's closer than you think if you don't know. By the time you realise it, it may be too late.

The last time i met Guro, i was mad at him for his election period goof, but am glad my boy is coming to his senses. But Guro, i want you to know that Buhari will not dare touch those traditional rulers. They are sunni and Buhari is an ethnic jingoist. Needs i say more!

With all due respect, can Ohaneze just shut up. What's their business with banditry in the North? We have big problems facing the East and that should be their mandate.

I am with ohaneze on this. Crime is crime no matter who the perpetrator is.
Re: Zamfara: Ohanaeze Calls For Arrest Of Traditional Rulers Promoting Banditry by MyGeneration: 9:31am On Apr 15
Who is advising these our Ohaneze leaders. Who?

That adviser is the true enemy of Igbo land.

This press statement is not necessary neither is it diplomatic. The northern monarchs released a statement about extra judicial killings of there subjects in there domains by the Naf, something the Fg is trying to investigate. Then out of nowhere you release a statement accusing the monarchs of supporting the bandits and demanding for there arrest.

Common that's very wrong.

I am an Igbo youth and I condemn and disown this statement.

Well, its time to remain silent, you talk and you become alienated in the affairs of things despite saying the truth.

Nigeria is a world different from the normal.... the next thing ultimatums starts flying from the NE and the SE retaliates while other regions bank on the quarrels and profiting politically from the issues leaving the main reason for the quarrel abandoned..

You call this caring Bro pls let these dudes just mind their business and defend their own territory and Zamfara defend their territory.

Herdsmen came to attacked recently in the East where was this dude then? But he is now dive nosing to Zamfara headachr.Pls free us from all these blabla.

If Buhari hasn't give marching order to curb every criminal ruthlessly with no mercy these animals will keep disturbing Nigeria peace. Buhari need to change guard and replace all his security chiefs and handed the new ones a stern ultimatum and failure to meet up its to be fire or be retire with immediate effect.

But this same Ohaneze is pleading for pardon for Kanu. They supported his madness throughout the time and never saw anything wrong in it.

It is easier to advise others than to take advice yourself.

That so called ohaneze youth president is an impostor, he should be arrest immediately and his paternity properly investigated. we have no business whatsoever about the killings in the north, we encourage them to increase the tempo of killings cos it make sense. The news of killings there is a hoax and is needed to stabilize their bloated populations. it beat my fancy how the think news of killings up north will curry any sympathy from us. we are not one and never will be.
