Anti-Igbo Song Calling For “Genocide” Now In Circulation In Northern Nigeria

 

The northern leaders have continued to be silent over Igbo hate-song originating from the North. The Ohaneze had accused northern leaders of giving the impression that they support Arewa youths and expressed their unhappiness over it.  The song described the Igbo people as ungrateful with the singer reportedly giving other reasons why he hates the people from the region.

The president-general of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, expressed shock that the leaders from the north had remained silent days after the song was reportedly released. They said that the current Hausa hate song trending in the social media is despicable, sad and disappointing and norther leaders have  allowed this development to flourish without reproach. “The Arewa youths have stoked the embers of hatred to a discomforting temperature. “The toleration of their criminal conduct has portrayed the federal government as biased and unfair,” Nwodo said in a statement reported by The Sun.

The apex Igbo organisation noted that the quit notice to the Igbos, who up till now are still Nigerians, to leave their country strikes at the fundamental rights of citizenship. “It is a call for the dissolution of the country. “Their call for an inventory and seizure of assets of Nigerians living in the north is conversion. It amounts to a daylight robbery of lawful property. “The declaration of mop up action after October 1, 2017 to deal with those who resist their quit notice order is a declaration of war.

“It is surprising that on top of all these a hate song calling for more hatred, despise and ‘abortion’ has been allowed to fester. Yet no one had been arrested. “All the orders of arrest from Kaduna state and the IGP seem to be ambivalent and unreal. “The youths meet freely with governors of northern Nigeria and northern leaders showing that they enjoy their support.

“This development signals the beginning of a national catastrophe, which if not nipped in the bud will snowball into incalculable damage to our continued existence as one country.

“Ohanaeze gives notice to the federal government to deal with this situation decisively or forever be held responsible for the consequences this abdication of responsibility provokes. A STITCH IN TIME SAVES NINE,” the report said.
