Former Special Assistant on New Media to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has berated the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government for not condemning the anti-Igbo hate song circulating in the North.
Reports have it that there is a song in circulation with lyrics disparaging people from the south-eastern part of the country and wishing them dead.
In a post on his Facebook page, Omokri said the refusal to arrest the Arewa youths that issued an exit ultimatum to Igbos leaving in the north, resulted in the release of the hate song.
5 days after it became public knowledge that an anti-Igbo hate song is circulating in parts of Nigeria we have radio silence from the Presidency.
Vacationing President Muhammadu Buhari, who condemned the Ozubulu killings in a statement, has nothing to say about the anti-Igbo hate song.
How won’t the anti-Igbo hate song take root when the Arewa Youths who gave the Igbo quit notice are walking around freely in public.
In the wake of the anti-Igbo song, I remind the Buhari administration that we’ve not forgotten the speed of their one sided arrest during the Ife Yoruba Hausa clash.
