Dickson Nnamdi Iroegbu, a Nollywood movie producer and director made a statement on Facebook that was in poor taste and earned him the fury of Nigerians.
Dickson, who originates from Imo State and is Igbo wrote that Nigeria will burn should Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Biafra people be harmed. He wrote,
Should Nnamdi Kanu be harmed, Nigeria shall burn – Remind them that in Tunisia, just one youngman setting himself ablaze changed the Arab world forever. Tell them the Igbo can never be intimidated. Our demand is Justice and Equity for all in Nigeria. #iamIgbo
