Vice President Atiku Abubakar has condemned the ultimatum given by some groups of northern extraction, asking Igbo to leave the North on or before October 1, 2017.
He said the ultimatum "is provocative, and a grave threat to national security."




The coalition of Northern groups, including the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, on Tuesday,  had given all Igbo resident in the 19 states of the North a three-month ultimatum to quit  or be forced out after the expiration of the October 1, 2017 deadline.
He made this known in a series of tweets he posted on Twitter. 
"The ultimatum issued by a Northern youth coalition to the Igbos to quit the region is provocative, and a grave threat to national security.
The counter response by a South-east group to Northerners is also reckless and thoughtless." he added.
