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.
