Retired Archbishop of Enugu Anglican Diocese, Most Rev Prof Emmanuel Chukwuma has revealed why the northern part of the country is plagued with banditry.

According to him, banditry is the punishment God sent to northerners for what they did to Igbos.

Chukwuma stated this during an interview with Vanguard.

Chukwuma added that the only thing that can stop it is if they apologize to Igbos.

He said;

“Gowon is very apologetic and that was why he started ‘Nigeria Praise’ and we have to commend him for that. That ‘Nigeria Praise’ was to revive the spirit of the people back from the Civil War and to reconcile people back to God and to go on with one Nigeria.

“Well, he has done it many times when he was doing ‘Nigeria Praise’; when he was moving around, he apologized but that’s not enough. The thing is that the Nigeria government should do that because the Nigeria Civil War dealt with us in Asaba, it was a real genocide and we’re asking for apology and more compensation as they do in other places. What is happening now in the whole of northern Nigeria – the banditry, kidnappings etc – is God’s punishment for what they did to us, yes! And until they apologize and ask for forgiveness, at no time will this banditry, kidnapping and killings stop. The blood of innocent people is crying and that’s what you are seeing there. So until they apologize and make some restitution, the banditry and mayhem you have in the North will not stop.”

Meanwhile, Nigerian singer, Timaya has finally reacted after he was called out by a group of singers over theft.

The group with the Instagram handle united.boys.culture.of.etche accused the singer of stealing their song with the title ‘dey your dey’.

Timaya released his own song with the same title a few days ago.

The group urged the singer to leave their song alone, accusing him of trying to make money from their own hard work.

Reacting in a recent interview with BeatFM, Timaya claimed that he was inspired by what he saw that made him sing the song.

He said:

“I said make dem dey their dey, make we dey our dey. And you know, actually, to be honest I get inspired by things I see, the people and environment. Anytime I go to PortHarcourt, I hear sound. These are stuffs we grow up with. Like me singing something like ‘ I will never follow you to that station’. [Nobody knows where it came from]. Even the song I sang, same song that said ‘rain, rain, go away.’ That means everybody for don come arrest me say I stole my childhood song. It’s a sense of entitlement, but it still goes with the promotion.”
