APC pastor under fire over ‘genocidal’ comments against Igbos

A member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and self-styled prophet, Godwin Ikuru has come under criticism from Aloy Ejimakor, the special counsel to the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that in a viral video apparently made after the February 25 presidential election, Ikuru threatened Igbos living in Lagos, ordering them to pack their bags and leave Lagos for voting Peter Obi of the Labour Party.

“All the Igbos in Alaba, all the Igbos in Idumota, all the Igbos in Lagos, as you wickedly voted for Obi, just pack your loads and leave Lagos. I’m just sending a message across to the country. If you play games against this movement, then let me tell you, I remain prophet Godwin. If not Asiwaju, there is no president, there will not be a president, Peter Obi will not be, so you better know what you are doing.

“It’s only Asiwaju that can be a president of Nigeria that will transform this country. All the Igbos that voted for Peter Obi in Lagos, pack your loads and leave Lagos, all the pastors who talked against Asiwaju in Lagos, pack your churches and leave Lagos. Lagos is not your land, leave,” Ikuru had said in the video.

Reacting, Ejimakor asked Tinubu to denounce Ikuru’s threat or else, he “may be held responsible for any bloodshed that ensues”.

“Dear @officialABAT, the man in this video is threatening GENOCIDE against the Igbo in Lagos for voting for @PeterObi. If you don’t disclaim him, you may be held responsible for any bloodshed that ensues. And as @MBuhari used to say: ‘baboons & dogs may soak in their blood’,” Ejimakor wrote on his known Twitter handle with an accompanying clip.
