Speaking in the Igbo dialect Chiwetalu Agu asks where they [the Hausas] were when the Igbos were hustling to build and invest in various parts of the nation.

Chiwetalu Agu likened the squabble between the Igbos and Hausa as that of the Israelis and the Egyptians, adding that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has failed to curb the activities of the herdsmen.

In his lamentation, the actor said:

“You the northerners, where were you when Igbos were building hotels and different things. Where were you, people? You people were asleep, busy eating money gotten from Niger Delta and you have the mouth to say Igbo should leave, if it is done that way, Hunger will kill you people.

“Whatever they want to do to the Igbos, this country Nigeria, let them do. . . But I want to warn the Hausas, the Fulanis and others, take it easy. Because when the fire of God that burns comes, it will roast all of you.



“If you want to know who you are oppressing, compare us to the Israelites. We are the people of God. Pharaoh was begged to leave the Israelites to go, Pharaoh refused, what happened later?
