Northern women group the Amalgamation of Northern Women Associations, on Saturday, embarked on a peaceful protest in Abuja.

The protesting women demanded a referendum to allow those clamouring for Biafra to choose whether or not they want to remain in Nigeria.

Speaking during the protest, Hadiza Adamu who is the coordinator of the group explained that history has shown that women carry the heavy burden of war and acts of insurrection and terrorism.

“Nigerian History has shown that women carry the heavy burden of war and acts of insurrections and terrorism. We have gone through it from 1967 to 1971, our men died and left us with the children to cater for out of nothing, other men that survived simply moved on but we never moved on,” she said.

Adamu said the women came together to say they won’t another war, stressing that the aftermath of war is suffering which leaves a lifetime scars.

“The aftermath of the war and the sufferings left lifetime scars in our hearts and on our bodies. It is for this reason that we (have) come together today and say we don’t want another war, another insurrection.

“We, therefore, unanimously call on President Muhammadu Buhari as the leader and father of the country; and the leadership of the National Assembly, President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmad Lawal; and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila; to immediately call for a referendum in the country.

“Let people choose to live in peace in Nigeria or leave, other groups or nationality that wish to secede to exercise their rights of self-determination like the South-East has been agitating for decades to be allowed to leave Nigeria peacefully, without resorting to a second civil war,” she said.

“Today the Igbo nation has turned the entire South-East to almost a war zone, northerners irrespective of their tribes are no longer safe, states’ infrastructures are no longer safe, service personnel from police to army are not safe, INEC offices and other symbols of democracy in the country are being destroyed on daily basis”

“Our husbands that go to do business in South-East no longer return home safe, our political leaders who travel to the South-East on national assignments are assassinated in broad daylight,” Adamu said.
