Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the statement credited to the Second Republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, who described the Indigenous people of Biafra IPOB, as “bastards”, if they fail to cause another civil war.
Junaid in an interview had said, “We have to be very careful. We know the history of those who are making agitations in Lagos. At first, they told the Igbo: ‘Go. When you go, we would go.’ The Igbo left. You know what happened? They took over all Igbo premises, all Igbo businesses, Igbo bank accounts.
“If Igbo are not stupid, will they like to go and do the same thing again? It was MKO Abiola who said that if you volunteer your head for some people to break coconut, you will not be alive to eat the coconut.
“The Biafra side lost about one million people and all the destructions. If the IPOB people want to try it again, I challenge them to try it. If they don’t try it, they are bastards. Let’s see what happens.”
Fani-Kayode, in reaction to the statement, in a tweet on Tuesday, warned Mohammed not to use this type of language.
He wrote: “Junaid Mohammed says “IPOB are bastards if they can’t cause another civil war”.
“I urge him to stop using this type of language. War is evil.”
