The former education commissioner in the old Anambra state, Prof. Nduka Eya, has called on Igbos living in the North to defend themselves against any possible attack.
He said this at the University of Nigeria, UNN, Nuskka.
According to him, asking Igbos to vacate the North is a matter that must not be treated lightly and Igbos have to defend themselves in order to be called true Nigerians.
