The Anglican Bishop mentioned this in a video obtained by SaharaReporters on Sunday.

“There was one boy who was not happy about the way his people are being treated. So, he started talking about the ill-treatment been meted out on his people and was talking too much (both what he should and shouldn’t talk about) so the government got hold of him and arrested him.

“So the uncircumcised Hausa/Fulani with their governors were jubilating that their enemy has been arrested. And you the Igbo in the East you are also jubilating that he was arrested. Those Igbos jubilating have a mental problem,” Obi mentioned.

He mentioned additionally, “whenever the enemy is jubilating that your brother has lost a battle or an election, and you also are joining them to jubilate, then you have a problem.”
