    ….Fani Kayode is an intellectual who is from a privileged Yoruba elite family, with parents that gave him the best of education obtainable around the world. I have also noticed that he is an articulate consistent social commentator and critic. However, as a concerned Igbo, I will be doing my people a disservice if I failed to bring to attention what I see to be not only a hypocritical pattern of behavior, but also a deliberate attempt by Kayode to speak through both sides of his mouth in a failed attempt at luring the Igbos into falling victim to yet another ethnic genocide as was experienced during the civil war…….and this has nothing to do with the aesthetic appeal of the article…..

    Why are we bent on figuring out who is luring the Igbos? Do we have our own mind and can Igbos truly figure out what they want and stand by it without dividing and separating… The article at hand is well written and it does not mean he likes the Igbos but he stated good points.

    ……the one million dollar question for Fani Kayode is: why the negative obsession with Ndi Igbo…..from tales of how he dated Bianca Ojukwu back in their days as students in UK to “the bitter truth about the Igbos”, and now this (Nnamdi Kanu and Biafra)….????

    I think the problem, Mr Eze is the disconnect between the aspirations of grassroot Igbos and their political leadership as presently constituted. What we are in dire need of is a Bola Tinubu that harness the present anger in Igboland and galvanised into a well articulated platform. Their silence and poverty of vision and courage are the problem not the ordinary Igbos.

    Titus Kolade Siwoku, “Igbos play the fool all the time. But they think they are smart.” I agree with you completely on this. It is time we told ourselves the truth. It is almost clear that our “smartness” as a group of people perpetually threatened with extinction, is a cruel farce! Let it be said for once. Until we begin to react like any endangered species would; apply rigour to a serious process of self-evaluation, begin to silently organise ourselves, begin to map out a future for our ethnicity and begin to build brick upon passionate brick of sincere brotherhood, our famed “smartness” remains a fancy thought.

      i think you are very confused. what brotherhood. the current resolve and protest for Biafra is not enough brotherhood. If you dont want to be igbo. fucking ask a yoruba or hausa guy to give you a name. the igbo is tired of igbo bashers.we already have enough enemies in nigeria. In Biafra we stand. Achebe, Ojukwu, all these people supported Biafra to their death

    If you are loosing your fights as a boxer, you do not quit to form your own boxing federation. You will stay in the association, re train and rekindle a resolve to win and become a champion one day. Igbos play the fool all the time. But they think they are smart.

      we are not intereted in fighting any more. we want out of nigeria. how hard is that. but yes you are the smart one and then entire igbo are foolish. Achebe whose last book advicated biafra is foolish, dr ikedife is foolish. we are all foollish and you the wise one

    Just sharing this post I read and agree completely with…..,,I want us to compare the current Biafran related op-ed by Femi Kayode and his op-ed last year when the Igbos reacted to the mass deportation of some Igbo indigents from Lagos by Lagos state government. He titled that op-ed, “the bitter truth about the Igbos”. After we have read both articles by Kayode, comparing and contrasting, then we can come to a conclusion whether we are dealing with an individual who is bent on luring us (Ndi Igbo) into yet another massacre or ………
