Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari over an inciting statement he made on the Nigerian civil war.
He described the statement as wicked and insensitive.
He also welcomed Twitter’s deletion of the offensive tweet of the president.
Buhari had said “Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
Reacting to the development, Fani-Kayode said the president’s statement saddened him.

“This statement from President Buhari saddens me. The suggestion that another 3 to 5 million Igbo, including 1 million children, may be subjected to genocide again for whatever reason is unacceptable and I condemn it in the strongest terms.

“Nigeria should be apologising for what she did to the Biafrans in the civil war and not threatening to do it all over again. State-sponsored genocide, ethnic cleansing, religious cleansing and mass murder has no place in a civilised country. Only savages animals and barbarians indulge in such things,” he said.
He added: “No matter how you feel about the Igbo, you have no right to threaten to visit them with death and destruction.

“They are not animals and they are not slaves: they are human beings and like all the rest of us, red blood flows through their veins!

“I am glad that Twitter removed Mr. President’s tweet. It did more damage to the psyche and confidence of the Igbo than all the killings that have taken place over the last 5 years. It has also traumatised millions of non-Igbo Nigerians who believe that the same treatment may be visited on them.

“Mr. President’s comment is insensitive, irresponsible and wicked and I sincerely hope that he will never say such a thing again. Can you blame those that want to establish Biafra when the President of Nigeria can say such things and issue such threats?”
