APC calls for the arrest of Peter Okoye
The brothers via their Instagram pages had questioned the federal government’s purported move to ban production of music videos abroad.
They said the federal government was trying to control what it never supported, adding that one day, a law would surface that will monitor how they sleep with their wives.
Reacting in a statement signed by the APC youths national secretary, Collins Edwin, the group described Peter Okoye as a “son of darkness.” According to APC, “We read the scurrilous remarks credited to Mr Peter Okoye of the Psquare group against the Federal Government’s job-saving policy in the entertainment industry with great anger and vexation.
“After the government have used its policy to brush them up from nothing to something; instead of giving opportunity to other people, they are taking Nigerian jobs to foreign countries through the shooting of music videos abroad. “Now that government have intervened to raise great and better entertainers again, Peter Okoye has the gut to insult the entire Federal Government by calling our great leaders ‘Ndi Ala’ which means mad and stupid people. How dare you say that Psquare? “We, therefore, urge the security agencies in the country to arrest Mr Peter Okoye for disrespecting our government and bringing it to a disrepute. “If you cannot produce in Nigeria and hire Nigerians, then leave the industry. We must export Nigerian culture to the outside world through our music and videos.”
