Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji has chided one of Nigeria front line newspapers (name withheld) that reported her making case for Igbos in Lagos.
The 2019 general elections, especially that of the presidential, has witnessed division between the Igbos in Lagos and Yorub’s. A development which led to crises between the two ethnic groups.
The newspaper had thereby, reported that Genevieve warned against killing her Igbo brothers.
The report partly read: “Genevieve advised that there is need to stop killing the Igbos anywhere they are because they rarely foment troubles, and if they do, they know that “Isi Kote Ebu, Ogbaa Ya” meaning “the head that pushes the wasp hive receives the sting.”
But reacting, the international actress chided the newspaper and warned it against carrying fake news.
“Fake news. I didn’t say any of that. Stop peddling rumors and enabling those who start it. Do better,” Genevieve tweeted.
The newspaper has, however brought down the report.
