The Coalition of Northern Groups CNG, has warned Zamani Lekwot regarding his recent attempt to smear former Military President Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida in his role in the Zangon Kataf crisis.

CNG Spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman who issued the warning in a statement in Abuja, says Lekwot should keep his frustrations to himself and avoid making baseless accusations.

According to the CNG, Lekwot’s accusations are baseless, misguided frustrations borne of pent-up ethnic jealousy aimed at promoting a separatist agenda that will harm the unity and stability of Nigeria.

The CNG recalled that Zamani Lekwot, who was a retired army colonel, emerged as a key figure in the Zangon Kataf crisis of 1993, using his influence to mobilize the Atyap ethnic group against the Hausa-Fulani.

It therefore warns Lekwot and others in his league that it is no longer acceptable for anyone to deploy hate campaigns, propaganda, and senseless ethnic agitations, aimed mainly at instigating conflict.
