Northerners, particularly Hausa residents in Onitsha in Anambra State, have taken refuge at various security formations in the state and neighbouring Delta State for fear of possible reprisal attacks following Monday’s bomb blasts at a motor park in Kano in which many South Easterners were feared dead.
As news filtered in of the bomb blast in Kano, the northerners hurriedly closed down their shops at bridge head in Ose Okwodu and other parts of the city fled to the 302 Artillery Regiment Barracks and other police stations in fear for their lives.
However, leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) Chief Ralph Uwazuruike has dismissed any possible reprisal in the entire southeast and called for calm.
Uwazuruike told newsmen that there will be no retaliation attack on Hausa residents in various cities across the southeast. “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 it is called”, he said.
