Goodluck Jonathan Reacts To Hate Song About Igbos And Ozubulu Massacre


Nigeria’s Former President Goodluck Jonathan, has expressed worry over the reports of hate songs against the Igbos circulating in the north. He also sent out his condolence over the Ozubulu church massacre on Sunday.

Reacting to the ill developments on his Facebook page, the former President reminded that, the Rwandan genocide was ignited by a similar hate song.He wrote:

“I have taken my time before commenting on the killings at the St. Philips Catholic Church, Ozubulu, in Anambra state, in order that I could be accurately briefed on the truth of the matter. “However, I condemn the killings and express my shock at such an event which is outside our culture of respect and reverence for religious places of worship and love for our fellow man.

“I condole with the survivors and the families of the victims and pray for the departed. In order to ensure that such occurrences never reoccur, we must rededicate ourselves to our principles of being our brother’s keeper and that without delay.

“I am also disturbed about the news of a song celebrating hatred against a particular Nigerian ethnic group. Given that a similar song is what ignited the Rwandan Genocide, as a nation, we must not take these reports lightly. I urge the security services to do their utmost to nip this wickedness in the bud.

“As I have said previously, we must understand and accept that all Nigerians are brothers and sisters born from the womb of one Nigeria. May this be uppermost in our minds as we pray that God may bless Nigeria. GEJ.”
