Until Nigeria apologize to Igbos, the country will continue to wallow in blood, death, poverty — Kayode


Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that "Nigeria will continue to wallow in blood, death, sorrow, failure, shame, poverty and carnage" until an unreserved apology is given to the Igbo people for the genocide, ethnic cleansing and mass murder that was unleashed on them during the Nigerian/Biafran civil war.

The former minister in a statement on Tuesday, said that killings and ethnic cleansing that is going on in the country  today is a spiritual consequences of what  the civilian Biafrans suffered in 1967 and 1970.

He called on the Nigerian government to tender a genuine apology to the people of the South-east which according to him, is the only solution and the way forward for the country. 

His words, "I have said it before and I will say it again, Nigeria must offer an unreserved apology to the Igbo people of the South East for the genocide, ethnic cleansing and mass murder that was unleashed on them during the Nigerian/Biafran civil war. 3 million Biafran civilians were slaughtered (1 millon of them children) in the space of three years during that conflict.

"This represents the greatest and most cruel act of black on black violence and genocide on the African continent in history.

"It is only surpassed, in terms of brutality and casualties, by the bestial acts of King Leopold 11 of Belgium when he and his white Belgian subjects slaughtered over 10 million Congolese in cold blood during the colonial era.

"Nothing can go right in Nigeria until a genuine and heartfelt expression of regret for what we did to the Biafrans is tendered by the leadership and people of our country and some form of restitution and compensation is made.

"The mass murder, ethnic cleansing and genocide that we are witnessing today in Nigeria and which is being inflicted on us by a callous, brutal, heartless, cold-blooded and wicked horde of strangers and homicidal maniacs that came from a distant foreign land 200 years ago is a spiritual consequence of what we did to the civilian Biafran population between 1967 and 1970.

"The only way that the carnage and bloodfest can be stopped and the vicious and endless cycle of violence can be broken is when we repent for what we did to those innocent and defenceles Biafran civilians during the civil war and apologise for it.

"Until then Nigeria will continue to wallow in blood, death, sorrow, failure, shame, poverty and carnage. Why? Because we are a nation under God's judgement.
