    RE:

    Exactly, it was tagged 'Igbo coup'. Giving a dog a bad name to murder it, the level of Marginalization, the inexhaustible hatred Igbo people have received starting from 1966 till today is so painful. You don't build a nation on hatred and spilling of innocent blood and expect things to be free flowing and prosperous.
    It doesn't work like that!
