A popular Nollywood producer, Dickson Iroegbu sounded a note of warning of severe consequences if detained Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu is harmed.
Kanu who has remained under the detention of the Department of State Security (DSS) is standing trials on terrorism charges.
Iroegbu made the statement via his facebook.
His words, “Should Nnamdi Kanu be harmed, Nigeria shall burn – Remind them that in Tunisia, just one youngman setting himself ablaze changed the Arab world forever. Tell them the Igbo can never be intimidated. Our demand is Justice and Equity for all in Nigeria. #iamIgbo.”
However, the controversial filmmaker later apologized for his comments.
I’m shocked and flabbergasted – indeed, may Nigeria never burn. Friends, my post was only an innocent projection into the unknown. As a filmmaker, I simply soliloquize at will, but the reactions from everyone simply points to one known fact, Nigerians are a great people. My humbly appeal to all of us is to pls forgive and forget – let us joins hands together to build a great nation. Let all tribes unite – WE ARE ONE PEOPLE! Our demand is Justice and Equity for all in Nigeria. Warm regards. #iamIgbo
