Kola Alapinni (LLM in International Human Rights Law, Essex BL) a yung Nigeria astute lawyer and human rigt activist has spoken on dangers of leaders talking negatively about  fellow tribe son part of a country
SPEAKING LAST NIGHT TO world industry leaders Blog,Alapini stated that:  "The comments are highly inappropriate. The Oba must be reminded that he has only one vote. Just as everyone else. He can cast his votes anyway he likes, but he cannot intimidate other voters. It is criminal and triable as an electoral offense.
' His speech also borders on the criminal, I wouldn't be surprised if the International Criminal Court receives a communication as regards his speech. He would have a case to answer. His speech is no different to the type that ignited the Rwandan Genocide where Hutu leaders called for the killing of Tutsis by saying they should be 'stamped out like cockroaches'.
