A twitter user who goes by the name Mcvaaey was banned earlier this month for hate speech against the Igbo, a major South Eastern tribe of Nigeria. He asked for “every igbo from the Eastern Nigeria” to be murdered for the alleged role they played in the last elections. He is now back to twitter with another handle and has continued his hate crusade.
This is after a statement made by the Oba of Lagos just before the Lagos State gubernatorial elections when the monarch, Oba Rilwan Akiolu threatened that the igbos will die in the lagoon if they do not vote for his candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode. In that same period, multi award winning movie director Kunle Afolayan also referred to Igbos as pirates but made a u-turn to apologize for his statements.

Mcvaaey (suspected to be an alias) earlier said, to the alarm of every sane Nigerian, through his twitter account that
The igbos have been used as agents of evil to rig and manipulate the Elections..Nigerian can’t move forward so long as igbos exist… Single out every igbo from the Eastern Nigeria and murder them..
Nigerians have condemned these utterances and have termed them “careless”, “evil”, and “unfair”.

The operators of Fashion Police Naija also said that their
hearts goes out to all my lovely Igbo fam that got to see this 1 nigga show his hate for a complete tribe just cuz of the evil done by some people. I feel really offended #BoycotMcvaaey #ArrestMcvaaey
Undeterred, Mcvaaey is back on twitter promoting anti-hate. When will he stop?
Lawal B. Alex a Public Relations practitioner said
He will likely not stop if he continues to get the attention he has received already. His IP needs to be traced to facilitate his arrest. These things are not difficult to do these days.
On the implications of Mcvaaey‘s crusade, experts have said it can lead to terrorism and worse, genocide.
