The Northern Elders Forum (NEF) has warned that the continued killings of northerners in many parts of the South will no longer be tolerated.

The Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the Forum, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed in a statement issued Friday called on governments, communities and law enforcement agencies to protect northerners living in the South.

The Forum drew attention to the dangers of the escalating incidents and provocations.

The forum noted that the recent murder of Nigerians in Imo State apparently on suspicion that they were northerners was one incident among many recent ones that involve harassment, illegal arrests, attacks and killings of Nigerians from the North.

“The impression that northerners are fair game for groups and organizations in the South is forcing northerners to exercise their rights to travel and live peacefully in any part of Nigeria only under great danger and fear. This is intolerable and unacceptable.”
