Abdulkadir Erkahraman; The Turkish Hate Monger – By Bamidele Ademola-Olateju
Yesterday, six people urged me to call out Abdulkadir Erkahraman on my wall and urge my friends to report his profile. I was hesitant at first because I had earlier dismissed him as inconsequential. This morning, I succumbed and wrote about him. Within minutes, I deleted the update. A few people noticed. I deleted that update because I had no information about him beyond facebook. This afternoon, I dug in for information and him.
Who is he? He is an ordinary Turkish man with no affliation to the diplomatic circles or the government of Turkey. He is a friend of the Eze-Ndigbo in Istanbul. He was sent to Nigeria to give Kanu the impression that he has International support. Abdulkadir Erkahraman was denied Nigerian visa in Istanbul. Determined to come to Nigeria, he headed to Ghana where he was given visa and came to Nigeria.
You might ask, why can’t Nigeria arrest him and let Turkey ask for his extradition? Well, he slipped through the cracks as usual. Back in Turkey, he is busy making stupid videos and incendiary statements capable of rupturing relations between Nigeria and Turkey. The government of Turkey is looking the other way because of their grudge against Nigeria on Fethullah Güllen. Nigeria has resisted pressure to close down the 17 Fethullah Güllen schools and hospital in Nigeria.
I am told the government of Nigeria is keeping tabs with his activities and his sponsors.
