Nigerian journalist, Kiki Mordi has stirred mixed reactions online after she said Igbo people are very harmful to women.

The staunch feminist had made this generalized statement in reaction to the call for a Swiss woman, identified as Nwanyiocha, married to an Anambra man, to be made the state’s commissioner for tourism by Governor-elect, Charles Soludo.

Many people have kicked against the call because they don’t want a foreigner in government.

Reacting to this, Kiki Mordi stated that she is pained by the “race gist”. According to her, there are many white women married to Igbo men that are being maltreated by their husbands and concluded by saying “Igbo men are very harmful to women”.

She wrote,

“This race gist is painful to me because there are a lot of white women married to Igbo men in some rural Igbo community and they have actually suffered. Once Igbo men get past the whiteness, they become women deserving of misogyny. Igbo men are very harmful.

I’m sorry point of correction, Igbo people are very harmful to women.”
