The Igbo socio-cultural group,
Ohaneze Ndi-Igbo has accused the Federal Government if doing nothing to
stop those making hate speeches against Igbos.
The group made the statement following the circulation of a song purportedly done by some Northerners, insulting Igbos.

Ohaneze said that the calls for Igbos the leave the North is a call for the dissolution of Nigeria.
The group’s leader, Chief Nnia Nwodo, who described the anti-Igbo song as a declaration of war, wondered why nobody has been arrested.
Nwodo said “The
current Hausa hate song trending on the social media is despicable, sad
and disappointing. Ohanaeze is appalled that prominent leaders in the
North, with the exception of a few, 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.
“Their
quit notice to fellow Nigerians to leave any part of Nigeria 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 daylight
robbery of lawful property.

“The
declaration of mop up action after October 1st, 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
is arrested.”
Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar recently condemned those behind the release of the anti-Igbo song, and called on the government to bring them to book.
