Minority groups will be exterminated if Nigeria breaks up – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo said calls for secession could lead to the destruction of minority groups in the country.

The former president made the remarks while receiving a Tiv Professional Group (TPG) from Benue State, who paid a courtesy call on him in Abeokuta on Wednesday, May 5th.

While his military friend told him that the main tribes in the country were selfish and did not care enough about minority groups, Obasanjo agreed with his friend’s opinion and also wondered what would happen to these minority tribes if the larger tribes decided to separate. said he was worried. and begin to operate as separate countries.

He said;

“If the Yoruba can stand as a country, if the Igbos and the Hausa/Fulani can stand as separate countries, where do we want the minority groups to be?

“Now, by virtue of the present situation, they are a little bit protected, but if Nigeria breaks up, they will be oppressed and exterminated."
