Nigeria Independent Youths Forum, NIYOF and National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, on Wednesday called for immediate arrest of the leaders of “Concerned Nigerians” “Our Mumu Don Do” Movement, Charles Oputa, (Charlie Boy) and Deji Adeyanju.

This was stated by Yunusa Yusuf, Coordinator of NIYOF, while briefing journalists, on behalf of the two groups, in Abuja.
They allegedly accused “Concerned Nigerians” “Our Mumu Don Do” Movement, of causing tension in Abuja.
According to them, “We want to believe that Charlie Boy and his cohorts like Deji Adeyanju are not above the laws of the land. Yesterday, their actions at the popular Wuse market can best be described as breach of security and Nigerians are still wondering why they haven’t been invited by the security agencies for questioning and further containment of the needless act Because Nigeria youths have vowed to take citizens actions against them should the security agencies further allow them to continuously unleash the menace of their protest on our innocent atmosphere.
“This act yesterday at wuse market took away food from the table of so many Nigerians and will lead more Nigerians to hunger by the closure of that act and has now invoked security tension in the FCT and Nigeria
“Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, it has come to our notice that there is a calculated agenda sponsored by politicians who are power hungry against 2019 and has paid handsomely for sponsorship to their illiterate willing tools who are now parading themselves as ambassadors of “Concerned Nigerians”

“We wish to tell the world that this country called Nigeria is bigger than one person and that it is not a sole proprietorship entity. Nobody or party can assume the ownership and control of Nigeria not even in their wildest imagination. We also wish to use this opportunity to quickly draw the minds of Nigerians back to 2010 where a former ruling party plunged Nigeria into a constitutional crisis by way of not allowing a peaceful transfer of power as constitutionally demanded to the Vice President in the case of the absence of the President”.

Yusuf noted, “It is in this vein, we also wish to call on the illiterates parading themselves as “Concerned Nigerians” to go back and study very hard the document on which the Nigeria project is being piloted with. Where were the so called self-acclaimed Leaders of “Concerned Nigerians” when Boko Haram was mercilessly killing Nigerians?”, he said.
The National President of NYCN, Murtala Muhammed, said Nigerian youths should not allow themselves to be used to cause violence in the country.
“What happened in Wuse Market was unfortunate and uncalled for. I want to urged Charlie boy to respect himself”.
