Alhaji Shettima Yerima, the leader of the Arewa Youth Coalition, which issued the now withdrawn October 1st quit notice to Igbos in the North, has said that he has no personal problem with Igbo people.
“A lot of my friends are Igbo people. I have nothing against the Igbo,” The Sun quoted him as saying.
“It did not end there; let me also demonstrate that to you; my first wife is from Calabar, the old south-eastern region. We have two kids. I have a good relationship with the Igbo.”
