According to a resent report, Bar­rister Vincent Egechukwu Obetta, an Enugu based lawyer, has approached the Fed­eral High Court in Abuja seeking an order of mandamus compelling the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, to ar­rest Yerima Shettima and his colleagues who, un­der the aegis of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF0, on June 6, this year, issued a quit notice on all Igbos living in northern Nigeria to vacate the region on or before October 1, 2017, or be forced out.

Barrister Obetta had told newsmen in Enugu that the recent suspension of the quit notice as widely reported in the media is not an excuse to for­feit trial of the Arewa youths who issued the quit notice and those backing them as prescribed by the law.
