‘Totally unacceptable’ – Fani Kayode knocks Igbos for supporting Israel

A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said that it is completely unacceptable for some Igbos to applaud the State of Israel for committing genocide against the women and children of Gaza.

Fani-Kayode said it’s an irony of fate that the overwhelming majority of the very same Igbo people, who were slaughtered in their millions between 1967 and 1970 and subjected to the worst form of ethnic cleansing that Africa has ever seen, openly support Israel.

The former minister, in a post on his X handle on Monday, noted that some Igbos erroneously call themselves the Jews of Africa, while some have adopted the Jewish faith.

“It is an irony of fate that the overwhelming majority of the very same Igbo people who were slaughtered in their millions between 1967 and 1970 and who were subjected to the worst form of ethnic cleansing that Africa has ever seen are now openly applauding the State of Israel for committing genocide against the women and children of Gaza.

“As a sign and symbol of solidarity with Israel and the atrocities they are committing in Gaza some of them erroneously call themselves the Jews of Africa, some have adopted the Jewish faith whilst others call themselves Zionists.

“This is totally and completely unacceptable and it is most unfortunate,” his post partly read.
