Hate song in circulation must not be taken lightly, says Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned a song said to be wishing the Igbo dead, warning that it shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Jonathan gave the warning via a post on his Facebook page on Tuesday.
He recalled that a similar song had led to the Rwandan genocide in which hundreds of thousands were killed.
While calling on the security agencies to respond to the situation, he urged Nigerians to continue to live as brothers and sisters.
“I am disturbed about the news of a song celebrating hatred against a particular Nigerian ethnic group,” he wrote.

“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.”
