Nigerian media personality, Uti Nwachukwu, has come under heavy attack on social media after he suggested he would remain loyal to a family member over anybody else even if that relative was Clifford orji.
Recall Clifford Orji was the first documented Nigerian cannibal who was also indicted in serial killings, kidnappings, and sale of human body parts and was arrested in 1999.
During the course of his arrest, Orji showed no remorse and maintained he would continue in the despicable act even if he were to be released.
Orji died on August 12, 2012, in Nigeria’s only super-maximum penitentiary where he spent 13 years.
Well, the comments didn't sit well with a lot of people who questioned why he would choose a convicted serial killer and cannibal over the love of his life.
Below are some reactions from Twitter:
"What Uti Nwachukwu said is tantamount to saying if he belongs to Clifford Orji's or James Nwafor's family or any notorious killer out there, he would support them because they're family. Let's condemn evil when we see it. Support Harry/Meghan without citing stupid analogies."
"Dear @SirUTI, this tweet is filled with good intentions but bad execution, please. This tweet sounds like your wife isn't family. Just an acquisition. Loyalty and wickedness don't dwell together. I can be loyal to Clifford Orji yet want him behind bars for his wicked act."
It's Uti Nwachukwu's mumu-ness for me and fact that I rated him is disgusting and wait! Clifford Orji??? The serial killer, kidnapper, ritualist among others.....Nobody stands you when it comes to being stupid Uti, the glory is all your honey, take it."
"Uti Nwachukwu needs to shave Dat his hair so Dat breeze can penetrate his brain, sometimes his reasons are dumbfounded, I think he needs to go to a rehabilitation centre, cos his stupidity is top-notch, Clifford Orji, Anticipate Wagwan Anticipate Fall For Me"
"Of all people to compare with, it's Clifford Orji? The serial killer, organ trafficker & Ritualist Clifford Orji? And you'll choose him over your spouse? How bad could she be for you to choose a murderer over her? Dear Lord, it's your girl once again. Keep calamity away from me."
"Uti Nwachukwu lost his Dad but stayed back in Big Brother Africa house. Now, he's shouting "family first". This guy will side wit even Clifford Orji as far as he's a family member over his own wife."
"Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but opinions like this means that you've set yourself up to end up in a dysfunctional union. Imagine rating Clifford Orji higher than a person you claim to love. I don't think you've encountered evil family members, pray you never do."
