The Economist Magazine Takes An Unfair Swipe At Igbos And Other Nigerians

The Economist just insulted Ndigbo gratuitously in the article linked to. It said;

Southern Igbos dominate trade in hard drugs, proving adept at creating networks of buyers and sellers in the diaspora.

I have to ask the Economist (one magazine I otherwise admire: What have Igbos done to you to make you treat them this way? Was it necessary to insult Ndigbo in this way in the midst of your ‘reportage’?

Can you substantiate what you published if called to do so?

Look at what you wrote about the Benin People, that they dominate the prostitution trade. Was that necessary?

And this is the second time in 20 years I’m reading that there is a school in Lagos, Nigeria where fraud is taught. Please, why not name the school? You shouldn’t have stopped at the allegation, you should have named the school.

If you dont name the school, The Economist, then you are engaging in cheap political blackmail, racial hate, and character assassination.
