The Coalition of Northern Groups has urged the federal government to begin the process of referendum.

The group said the recent arrest of Kanu cannot stop calls for agitation across the country.

The group noted that it remained apprehensive about the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu until the full course of justice takes effect.

It claimed that Kanu’s arrest will not affect Biafra agitation as a referendum was pertinent.

The spokesman of the group, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman commended the effort of the federal government and the agencies in a statement, thanked the International Police and authorities of the United Kingdom for honouring their obligations to Nigeria.

The group said, Nnamdi Kanu has a pending trial for treasonable felony and jumping bail, saying that he must now face additional charges of incitement to violence and killing of people of other ethnicities particularly northerners, security personnel as a result of his open incitement.

The statement said, “More importantly, we don’t see Kanu’s arrest affecting the issue of Biafra. While he faces trial hopefully, the CNG is insisting that this is the right time to tackle the Biafran issue once for all.”

The coalition explained that nobody should make the mistake of assuming that the arrest is anywhere near the end of the Biafran affair, insisting, “We stand our ground that a referendum must be held to determine this and all other agitations for self-determination from any part of the country.”
