The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) on Monday, expressly warned Northerners against travelling to the South-East for now in view of the current security situation in the country.
It also decried the attacks and killings of northerners residing in or visiting the Southpart of the country, particularly the South-East.
The ACF made the call in a statement issued by its National Chairman, Chief Audu Ogbe, in Kaduna.
The forum was reacting to the Sunday’s murder of the All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Ahmed Gulak, by unknown gunmen in Owerri, Imo State.
The ACF advised the people of the region to engage the services of security agents before embarking on any trip to the Southern part of the country.
The forum warned that continuous attacks on northerners in the South would not augur well for Nigeria, saying such situations were responsible for the country’s civil war of 1967 to 1970.
