Chief Bola Tinubu, All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain has come under heat over his comment during a recent visit to Afenifere leader, Pa Fasoranti,

Tinubu had paid the visit to commiserate with Fasoranti over the killing of his daughter by suspected herdsmen, last weekend.

The Indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB whe spoke through it’s spokesman, Mr Emma Powerful said Tinubu’s attempt to drag Igbos into the killing of their daughter, would not be supported by the Yorubas because they are enlightened.

Parts of the release read, “You cannot sacrifice the blood of your brethren on the shrine of your greed, conceit and unbridled 2023 presidential political ambition.

“I must remind you today that your Fulani masters will never do for you what you are slavishly doing for them. You know in your heart of hearts that murderous Fulani herdsmen are culpable in the brutal murder of a Yoruba daughter and that Igbos had no hand in the Ore Highway Massacre.

“An influential newspaper reported that nearby villagers, who are Yorubas, informed the police that the killer Fulani herdsmen have their base in a nearby forest. These are eye witness account from Yoruba people living in the surrounding areas where the tragic incident occurred. Or are you saying the villagers can no longer distinguish between a gun wielding Fulani terrorist and an Igbo man?

They opined that Tinubu’s comment has only added to the pain of Fasoranti’s family “Your unguarded utterances only succeeded in doing more harm to the Fasoranti family, insulting the memory of their daughter and will be seen for what it is, an affront to the dignity of the Yoruba race.”
