The group which was reacting to a threat issued by the leader of IPOB, urging his members to stone Chief Nwodo at sight for failing to protect the zone against the rampaging Fulani herdsmen in the region, warned that Kanu should be warned against instigating internal crisis in the region.
A statement According to the group’s coordinator and the convener, Chibueze Nwoga and Gwiyi Solomon explained that an average Igbo man in the contemporary Nigerian Nation feels marginalized and ill-treated and chief Nwodo has been speaking out against this untowered development as well as fighting to protect the interest of the region by every means available to him.
“When Kanu’s House was invaded by the military, Nnia went to Chartan house in London, where he sought for intervention of big powers while telling the world that Nigerian government has committed genocide against his people
“When during Donald Trump’s victory match by IPOB in Rivers State, where some of the protesters were killed by the military, Chief Nnia cried foul, gave government ultimatum to bring the killers of his children to book
“During his inauguration speech as president of Ohaneze, he called out the President, while protecting the zone.
“The other day again, a bomb blast went off at Nnia’s residence at Ukehe, fuelling speculations that IPOB wanted to kill the Igbo leader
“So what else does Kanu want from Chief Nnia Nwodo? ” Gwiyi queried
The group further called on the Governor of Enugu State to ensure protection of life and safety of Nnia Nwodo as any attack on his personality would be met with stiff resistance by the youth group
“If there is anybody that Kanu listens to, let the person prevail on him to withdraw his threat on Chief Nnia as any attempt on the former minister of information would be met with stiff resistance
Meanwhile the youth group said the association will organise a protest match to Government house, where the body will remind the Governor of Enugu state, Rt Hon Dr Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi his avowal to protect life and properties of Enugu citiz

Jerusalem Remains Our City, We Must Recover It At All Cost – Turkey President Vows
Addressing lawmakers in Ankara, Turkish president says the Palestinian people have lived in the capital ‘for thousands of years’

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Thursday implied that Jerusalem belongs to Turkey, referring to the Ottoman Empire’s control over the city for much of the modern era.
“In this city that we had to leave in tears during the First World War, it is still possible to come across traces of the Ottoman resistance. So Jerusalem is our city, a city from us,” he told Turkish lawmakers during a major policy speech in Ankara. “Our first qibla [direction of prayer in Islam] al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem are the symbolic mosques of our faith. In addition, this city is home to the holy places of Christianity and Judaism.”
The Ottoman Empire ruled over Jerusalem from 1516 to 1917. Modern Turkey, its successor state, has long stressed its enduring connection to the holy city, regularly condemning Israel’s alleged efforts to “judaize” it and the US administration’s December 2017 recognition of it as Israel’s capital.
Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since the country’s founding, and the Jewish people have thousands of years of history in the city, backed up by extensive archaeological finds.
During a lengthy speech at the opening of the Turkish parliament’s new legislative session, Erdoğan spent several minutes lamenting the fate of Jerusalem and the Palestinians’ plight.
President @RTErdogan: “We consider it an honour on behalf of our country and nation to express the rights of the oppressed Palestinian people on every platform, with whom we have lived for centuries.”
“Another crisis that our country and our nation carefully follow is the oppression of Israel against the Palestinians and the indifferent practices that disregard the privacy of Jerusalem,” he said toward the end of his address.
“The issue of Jerusalem is not an ordinary geopolitical problem for us. First of all, the current physical appearance of the Old City, which is the heart of Jerusalem, was built by Suleiman the Magnificent, with its walls, bazaar, and many buildings. Our ancestors showed their respect for centuries by keeping this city in high esteem.”
The Palestinian people have been living in Jerusalem “for thousands of years,” but they were occupied and had their rights violated, the Turkish leader went on.

He went on to vow to “pay close attention” to the Palestinian issue.
“We consider it an honor on behalf of our country and nation to express the rights of the oppressed Palestinian people on every platform, with whom we have lived for centuries,” he said. “With this understanding, we will follow both the Palestinian cause, which is the bleeding wound of the global conscience, and the Jerusalem case to the end.”
