This is following the recent ultimatum given to the Igbos residing in the North by the Arewa youths to leave the region on or before October 1st.
The Arewa youths claimed they were reacting to the sit-at-home order on the 30th May by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, at the end of the Federal Executive Council meeting chaired by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, said that all Nigerians are free to live anywhere in the country.
According to him; ‘’The Federal Government is on top of the situation’’.
The Minister said that the series of consultation meetings the Acting President is holding is to calm the situation and to reassure all Nigerians of their safety anywhere in the country.
He said: “We want to make comments on what is agitating the minds of Nigerians, that is the call for people from certain parts of the country to relocate to their region, generally very disquieting voices.
“So there is no need for anybody to panic, there is no need for anybody to move from any part of the country. The security agencies are on top of the matter and there is no reason for anybody to panic,” he added.
