Kano bombing: Northerners flee Onitsha….Igbos Planning War?

Hausa residents in Onitsha closed shop and fled the city today in fear of reprisal attacks.
Non-indigenes mainly northerners closed all their businesses at the
Head Bridge market and other parts of the city to seek protection in
various security stations including the Army barracks in the city and
police stations. They feared that the Igbos will revenge yesterday’s bomb attack in Kano….

Meanwhile, the leader of the Movement for the
Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has said there would be no reprisal attacks on northerners
inhabiting the South East following Monday’s bus bombing in Kano where
more than 30 people were killed.
Calling for calm, Uwazurike said, “We
are not known for bloodletting and Ndigbo cannot be cowed into shedding
blood but we want an end to this senseless bloodletting of Igbos in the
North in whatever name called.”
