    igbos Must be Eliminated in Nigeria. – Dr Abraham Ariyo.

    In tunes with the hate and threat speech by Oba of Lagos, Oba Akolu, a son of a monarch in Ijeshaland, Dr Abraham Ariyo, has called for immediate elimination of Ndi Igbo in Nigeria.

    Dr Ariyo, an n American Based Cardiologist took to his Facebook to express his planned Xenophobia against the Igbos.

    He said that the victory of the Buhari will change the attitude of Nigerians about the Igbos, “All is about to Change soon. You see How they (Igbos of Nigeria) are being slaughtered in South Africa, that is what is going to happen to them in Lagos”. “because they will continue to provoke the natives, wherever they go until the natives will say enough is enough”.

    Ariyo who cals for genocide against Igbos went further to say that, “Do you know that last week, Igbos were demanding from Buhari to select an Igbo man as FCT Minister, This is because Igbos claim that they won 70% of the businesses in Abuja”.
    “Why are they not going to be slaughtered in Abuja, when they keep insulting Abuja natives and want to take over.”. God Might have put a curse on them”.

    He praised the Fashola Government for deporting Igbos. ” We will continue to bus them to Onitsha, otherwise we look for war with them”.

    These Xenophobia by the Oba of Lagos and now the Son of a monarch in Ijeshaland must not be treated as an isolated case, there must be a secret forum where an attack on Igbos and their properties must have been discussed and concluded, before these people through the act of God, revealed it.
