There is an anti-Igbo song being circulated in northern Nigeria – Top media house alleges



The Foundation for Peace Professionalssays it has in its possession, a hate song obtained through the social mediaand currently circulating in northern Nigeria.

According to Sahara Reporters the songwhich was voiced by an unknown female artist in Hausa language, was carefully worded, with the intention of causing deliberate mass incitement of Nigerians from the North against those from the Igbo extraction.

Below is the statement released on their website:”In our candid estimation, the song is a threat to national security and we can’t imagine the extent of genocide that may likely occur, should the Federal Government not mobilize all resources within its capacity to avert the catastrophic response that may break out in the next few weeks, if not days.”The song is dangerous, inciting and capable of drawing the country into another civil war and we must act fast to stop it.

“We are using this opportunity to call onthe federal government of Nigeria underthe leadership of the acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, all security agencies, all Northern Governors and traditional rulers, particularly in fragile states like Kano, Kaduna, Jos, Bauchi, Borno, Yobe and others to immediately take steps.

“Not only to withdraw the song from circulation and embark on extensive media advocacy in Hausa to counter the deadly incitement, but to also mobilize strategic security responses toaddress any reaction that may break outas a result of the hate song. This is an emergency that must be taken with all seriousness.

“All Northern leaders must with immediate effect, condemn and dissociate themselves from this barbaric song and urge the people never to attack any Nigerian of Igbo extraction living in the north.

“While we strongly condemn those who produced the song and circulated it on the social media, we urge them to understand that the fire they are about to light may not spare them.”Finally, inciting the masses into committing genocide against a people is not the best way to respond to whatever situation. We urge all Nigerians to cherish peace and continue to work towards building a better Nigeria.

A man named Musa Aliero, who reportedly listened to the song had this to say:”I have listened to the song and I didn’t hear any part that says people should start killing igbos or commit genocide. Sahara reporters u have a responsibility to report things objectively the way theyare not twist them and misrepresent them to achieve sinister motives.

“Yes the singers are useless people definitely paid rogues used to incite chaos. In summary they called igbos fools and wished unborn igbos miscarriage in their mothers womb! Lol.

“They said they want the break up to happen and mentioned how northern money was used to develop Nigeria before oil. No genocide incitement. I condemn the singers and sponsors of this song in its entirety.

“Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris,has given reasons why the leader of the Indigenous Peopleof Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu,has not been re-arrested for flouting his court orders.

Explaining why Kanu and the President of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF), Shettima Yerima have not been arrested for inflammatory comments, hesaid the police was on top of the situation adding that they have to analyse the pros and cons.
