Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation has criticized those rejoicing that the five Nigerians, arrested for allegedly robbing a bureau de change in Sharjah, Dubai of Dh2.3 million Dinars, are all Igbos.

The names of the suspects, who had gone to the UAE country on a visitor visa, were given as Chimuanya Ozoh, Benjamin Ajah, Kingsley Ngoka, Tochukwu Alisi and Chile Ndunagu – making them all from the Igbo extraction of Nigeria.

Speaking on the matter, the former minister said the rest of the world view the robbers as Nigerians and not as Igbos and their behaviour is a  reflection of us all.

He wrote; I pity those rejoicing at the fact that the boys who were caught robbing a BureauDeChange in Dubai were Igbo.

They fail to appreciate the fact that the rest of the world, including the Arabs, rightly view them as Nigerians and not Igbo and their behaviour is a reflection of us all.

    How did Fani know that people are laughing because they are all Ibos? To be quite brings dignity.

Femi Gbajabiamila

Josephine Okereke, wife of the Abuja-based vendor killed by a security aide of Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, has rejected the family’s demand of N500 million compensation.

Okereke while speaking to newsmen on Thursday stated that what she wants is justice for her late husband, and not the compensation being sought by his family.

Days after the Speaker promised to ensure justice, the family of the slain vendor wrote the speaker, demanding a N500 million compensation.

Okereke, however, told journalists in Abuja that she was not privy to the N500 million compensation requested by the family.

“I was in my house when within 10 minutes my father-in-law came from Abia, he went out along with his other son and the next day I heard that my husband’s people are demanding N500 million as compensation,” she said.

“I was shocked and asked how will they be doing that and how will the speaker help the children again with such demand. All I want now is that the person that killed my husband to face justice.”
