There are mixed reactions on Twitter as the leader of the proscribed IPOB group, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu prayed for Israel. The country is currently facing a battle with the terrorist from Gaza. The fight escalated on Monday after series of rockets were fired at both sides.
According to Arise TV, the United States and other European countries have called for calm but to no avail. In a video shared by a popular Nigerian political activist, a former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, Israel intercepted some of the rockets fired at her.
According to information gathered from various online news sources, over 20 people have been killed as a result of the attack from both parties. It was also reported that the holy city, ‘Jerusalem’ may be the major reason while both are fighting (more details soon).
However, Kanu in his tweet said, “I pray for the peace of Israel. May those that love thee prosper”. His statement has drawn the attention of some Nigerians reacting in different ways. The screenshots below show the reactions from some Nigerians.
