Outcry over US Nigerian Doctor, Dr. Adeniran Abraham Ariyo who called for xenophobic attack against Igbos.

Adeniran Abraham Ariyo and Family

A Nigerian Medical Doctor based in Texas, United States few days ago made scathing statements online mocking the Igbos of Nigeria who lost their lives in the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa.


This was obtained from screenshots taken from his facebook page where he made inciting statements condemning the Igbos for demanding the position of the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory. He also made some other hateful remarks where he alleged that the Igbos are cursed and that they should be sent back to Onitsha.



In one post he is quoted as saying, "...You see how they are being slaughtered in South Africa, that's what is going to happen to them in Lagos...". He is yet to react to the backlash he is getting from concerned Nigerians on social media who have roundly condemned his hateful stance. Below is a screenshot of the conversation obtained from Facebook.



Dr. Adeniran Ariyo is a cardiologist in Dallas, Texas and is affiliated with Dallas Regional Medical Center. He received his medical degree from University of Ibadan and has been in practice for 27 years. He is one of 10 doctors at Dallas Regional Medical Center who specialize in Cardiovascular Diseases. Following general outcry on social media, Dr Ariyo has gone into hiding. He has removed all his pictures on Facebook and deleted his post.
A few days ago, a Change.org petition was filed against him, asking the Texas medical board to investigate him and for his medical license to be revoked. , states:

This is important because the massacre or extermination of any ethnic group is against UN law and of course the laws of United States. No ethnic group should ever have to be massacred due to hate for any reason whatsoever since there are legally accepted ways of dealing and settling differences. The world can not allow this to happen.”

So far, the petition has 4,618 supporters. Some of the reasons given by the supporters for signing is as follows;

I wish I am from the space right now! This is just sickening! A medical doctor that ought to be humane? A public figure? May God forgive us all & heal the world!

  9. Akiolu the first "offender" was not roasted why ariyo. I can assure nothing is likely to come out this. Free the man he simply shared his thoughts.

    1. U will be shocked that sth will come out of it cos he's not living in a society where such comments will be embraced.nigeria is a lawless country not america. That petition will be his downfall I promise u.how can people make dangerous statements like that. Does it mean he will kill an igbo or any other tribe he detests?

      Delete
    2. Shared his thoughts?? And that makes it right?? People like u are dangerous to condone such hate and call it merely sharing ones thoughts.oba akiolu, the zulu king should all appear human rights court.the zulu king had killed and hurt and displaced thousands of people with his dangerous comments.

    1. Serious insecurity. He's on his own, even the yorubas will deny him.

  11. Inciting anyone to attack another person because of their beliefs,colour,race,tribe,tongue,etc is totally wrong and unacceptable. This man has clearly crossed the line. What he thinks in his head should not concern us,but we should be mindful when he shares his hateful thoughts with others on Facebook or the social media because many people look up to him. He needs to retract his words and apologize to the world,especially the Ibos.

  13. so only Igbo people were killed in SA - no other people. Dr. Adeniran A. Ariyo, i believe your certificates were bought, not based on intelligence. You must be human animal. You support killing and you claimed to be Doctor. Killing versus Doctor=Witch Doctor. Evil Animal Beast.
