Igbos have too much bad blood in them — Yul Edochie



Igbos have too much bad blood in them -- Yul Edochie

Nollywood actor and occasional controversial figure, Yul Edochie, has voiced his concerns regarding the prevalent envy and discord among his fellow Igbo people of the Nigerian divide.

In a post on his Instagram platform, Edochie addressed the disturbing trend where families and cousins engage in quarrels fueled by negative comments passed down from their parents.

He highlighted instances where individuals struggle to recall the origins of their disputes, emphasizing the deep-seated animosity prevalent within Igbo extended families.

Expressing bewilderment, Edochie questioned the paradoxical behavior of attending church services on Sundays while harboring bitterness towards relatives. He pointed out the incongruity of witnessing animosity within families despite religious observances.

“Many families, cousins are bearing malice against each other, cos of something their parents told them that the other parents did to them donkey years back. Some can’t even remember the reason for the quarrel. There’s beef and envy in almost every extended family in Igbo land. Yet, every Sunday they’re in Church. Makes no sense,” remarked Edochie.

This is not the first time Edochie has addressed this issue. Last year, he expressed dismay at the pervasive jealousy among Igbos and urged for a change, particularly noting how some prosperous Igbo individuals harbor resentment towards their own family members.

In his call for action, Edochie emphasized the urgency of spreading love and eliminating hatred and envy from society. He underscored the importance of fostering unity and harmony, urging his social media followers to embrace love as a powerful antidote to discord.

Yul Edochie’s remarks have sparked introspection within the Igbo community.
