Nigerian Music legend, Eedris Abdulkareem has said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government will soon start arresting Nigerians for speaking Igbo.
Eedris said this while condemning the arrest of Veteran Nollywood actor, Chiwetalu Agu.
Chiwetalu Agu was arrested on Thursday by the Nigerian Army for wearing Biafra regalia.
The Nigerian Army confirmed he was arrested for inciting members of the public and soliciting support for IPOB.
In a post on his Instagram page, Abdulkareem said Agu deserved to be honoured in the East for his brave act.
Describing Buhari’s government as a useless one, he wrote: “No matter the kind of film Chiwetalu Agu acts he’s more wise and brave than other actors in the East and must be honored.
“People will soon be arrested for speaking Igbo in Nigeria.”
