OPEN LETTER to @FBI. I have been saying this for 20 years. Nobody listened. Nigeria is a great country. I lived in America close to 30 yrs. My children are American. Youngest @Richkjtmusic is American-Nigerian. We have ETHNIC TRIBES. We are a tribal country #IgboYahooBoys
@FBI It is important you know our ethnic tribes #Igbo #Hausa #Yoruba which represent East, North and West. When we had Nigerian men killing their wives in 2001 they were Igbo names. I covered 6 murder trials. It was a trend. A cultural bad habit. All the police saw was Nigerian
@FBI This list comes after #invictusobi Obiwanne Okeke the Forbes celebrated billionaire was arrested while working in his dark corner of the net. The whole country is in tribal mode. A country that picks ministers and lawmakers via tribe before experience #IgboYahooBoys
