Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw his statement about the people of the South East and stop reminding the Igbo tribe he(Buhari) took part in the civil war.
According to HURIWA, Buhari should desist from persecuting the Igbo people on all fronts with his nepotistic nature as they condemned his hate speech.

In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA, however, asked Buhari to stop threatening war against any section of the country and behave like a statesman except if he wants to tell the world that he is a warlord.
The statement read: “Please President Muhammadu Buhari stop reminding us the Igbo of how you participated in the pogroms that resulted in the killing of over 3 million Igbo in the late 60’s and even after destroying the then Eastern Region, General Yakubu Gowon the then war time junta leader failed to rehabilitate or reconstruct the destroyed Eastern region but after the people through their efforts rebuilt South East of Nigeria, President Buhari is now threatening to launch another civil war against Ndigbo only because a bunch of boys are constructively canvassing self-determination.
“This is outrageous, provocative and sadistic. We condemn this dangerous rhetoric and hate speech with all our hearts and minds and we are putting the World on notice that Muhammadu Buhari plans to carry out another pogrom against Ndigbo”.
