A statement issued by the groups spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, Wednesday, said, “Our attention has been drawn to an audio recording in circulation that tends to incite people to violence against some ethnic groups in the country purportedly made by one Ibrahim Mohammed Jajere.

“We emphatically wish to distance ourselves from such pronouncement and its maker and restate that we have never called anybody to violence.

“We find the audio quite unfortunate and an attempt to divert attention from the current commendable efforts made by the Acting President and other well-meaning regional leaders.

“It is unfortunate that such pronouncements are coming at a time when meaningful strides are being made towards dousing ethnic tension in the country.

“Just last week, a leader of our Coalition Amb Yerima Shettima told the world that we would review the earlier position of the Coalition in appreciation of the recent position of the Southwest governors that denounced Biafra.

“That of course, is the main borne of contention as we found it ridiculous for a people to be in one country and claim another independent nation at the same time without recourse to due process that regulate the right to self determination.”

The groups assured that they were in the process of making a positive pronouncement when the death of their respected father and northern elder occurred.

“We are restating our commitment to peace and obedience to the Nigerian state and its institutions, we call on the public to disregard any pronouncement purportedly made in our name unless it came from our spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman or Amb Yerima Shettima or N. A. Sheriff.

“Meanwhile, we extend hands of friendship to all ethnicities of Nigeria as we expect to make a definite positive pronouncement soon. We once again commend the effort of the Federal Government, regional leaders, other youth organisations across the country and the understanding of the public,” the groups affirmed.
