Nigerians have gone to Facebook, a popular social networking site in their numbers, to denounce terrorism and state clearly that Nigerian’s do not support any form of terrorism. A Facebook group started to condemn the alleged attempt by Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab to blow up a US passenger plane has attracted more than 52,000 members.
The group named “We Condemn Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s Action: Nigerians are NOT Terrorists” was created by Henry Omoregie an oil and gas recruitment consultant and freelance online journalist in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
The description of the group says it was formed to “condemn the behaviour of a lone numbskull who has just dragged Nigeria’s already sodden image more into the mud. “Nigerians are good people, we are not terrorists, we love life!” the page says.
“I started this page because it has been years of global disgust at Nigeria and Nigerians for acts done by a micro unit of actually peace-loving people. Even without this latest episode, innocent Nigerians have been scapegoated for acts done sometimes by impostors and habitual never-do-wells in our society,” Omoregie said in response to a question.
“We Nigerians cannot fold our arms and watch while the acts of just one over-bloated son of a big-gun smears the already sodden image of our great Nation and put the travel comfort of over 150 million in jeopardy,” said the Facebook page creator.
“With the fuming retorts on the group page, any right-thinking non-Nigerian will see the real emotions and hatred of this dastardly act by well-meaning good people of a great nation.”
I Believe Nigerians are not terrorists.. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is not a Nigerian, He is only a Nigerian by Name.
Terrorism is not part of Nigerian culture.No Nigerian can get up and die unnecessarily for anybody.Farouk is a vandal,infact he is not a Nigerian,period!God will never forgive those people that drag our name to the mud for ever and ever.AMEN
