Na wa for this Igbo vs yoruba tin on nairaland. I don't think Igbo pple on nairaland want non-Igbos commenting on their threads or any thread about Igbos. IMO, yorubas on nairaland should hands off Igbo threads so only Igbos can talk about Igbos.

Hahaha... I treat people the way i meet them. But Bros, why do you assume that if a person is an Igbo, he is evil. And Yorubas are Angels and Saints? Why do you despise Igbo people like you do? Let us be honest and truthful with our comments and avoid antagonising people. Stop breeding tribalism you IDIOTS!

Gridlock at Onitsha Bridgehead, security agents clear Abuja-Lokoja Road
December 22, 2012 by Agency Reporter 11 Comments

Security agents and traffic officials on Saturday battled to clear congestion at Onitsha Bridgehead and Gwagwalada on Abuja-Lokoja Expressway on Saturday.

For the second day running, motorists groaned for hours at the Asaba and Onitsha ends of the River Niger bridge linking Delta and Anambra states, as hundreds of travellers headed home for the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Meanwhile, soldiers, policemen and the Federal Road Safety Commission managed to clear long lines of traffic at Gwagwalada, caused by a broken truck.

They had a hectic time clearing the vital road linking Abuja with the South-South and Kogi State, as travellers headed to their hometowns for the Yuletide.

More details later.

THESE GOES TO SHOW THAT THERE IS A MASSIVE MOVEMENT OF PERSONS, PROPERTIES AND GOODS TO ALAIGBO FROM NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST AND OVERSEAS. ARIK, AERO CONTRACTORS AND A HOST OF OTHER AIRLINES NOW OPERATE MORE THAN ONE FLIGHT TO VARIOUS PARTS IGBOLAND. AIRPORTS IN IMO, ENUGU AND ASABA ARE A BEEHIVE OF ACTIVITIES THIS PERIOD. BIGOTRY SHOULD STOP.

Fear of kidnapping stems Igbo Xmas travel


TRADITIONAL Christmas travel to southeastern Nigeria has been severely reduced this year as many Igbos chose to either stay abroad or enjoy the holidays in Lagos for fear of kidnapping.




There are believed to be about 30m Igbos living in Nigeria and as many as about 5m living in the diaspora. Traditionally, Igbos both at home and abroad, always travel back to southeast Nigeria for Christmas in what has become an annual pilgrimage.



However, this year, the figures are reported to be down with Lagos transporters saying that business is quieter than usual. They attribute the lull to the incessant menace of kidnapping, which has become very rampant across the southeast lately, with wealthy and influential Nigerians being abducted in exchange for huge sums.
[b]


Over the last week, Nollywood actress, Nkiru Sylvanus and former Mr Nigeria, Kenneth Okolie were both kidnapped in Owerri and were only released after large ransoms were paid. For the last fortnight, luxury bus motor parks at Jibowu, Yaba, Ejigbo, Ikotun, Igando and Alimosho parts of Lagos, mostly patronised by Igbo travellers, have reported slow trade.



Apparently, the situation is so bad that luxury bus operators have been forced to reduce transport fares during what should be their peak period. Ekene Dili Chukwu Motors in Jibowu for instance cut its fares to N6,000 from N7,000 for luxury buses and to N5,000 from N5,500 for mini buses going to the southeast.



Similarly, at the Ifesinachi Motor Park, the fare was for a journey to Onitsha, Enugu or Owerri in a luxury bus was reduced to N6,000 from N7,000. Ejike Madu, a manager with Peace Motors, Yaba, conceded that transporters were forced to reduce their fares because of low patronage.



He added: “Things are very hard and this is responsible for the considerable drop in the number of passengers travelling to the East. Most passengers are also afraid of the men of the underworld. They are afraid of kidnappers.”

[/b]

It is not clear what number of Igbos from the UK have flown to Nigeria and decided to stay put in Lagos
. In the US, Igbos constitute a majority of the Nigerians there, while they are the second largest ethnic group in the UK. http://www.nigerianwatch.com/news/1029-fear-of-kidnapping-stems-igbo-xmas-travel-

Will you keep quiet...

From the article, it's obvious that it's a general trend. That's why Akure, Ondo was cited in the article. The writer focused on Igbos because we all know Igbos are the ones who usually travel home in large numbers. A lot of people i know traveled home.

Btw, the mods have started their tribalistic ways this new year. I don't see why tribalistic topic opened by the likes of ekoile and Aishatu should make the frontpage.
Yorubas and tribalism! They can never change. SMH

Christmas: Travellers Trek To Avoid Asaba-Onitsha Expressway Traffic

As the Yuletides season approaches commuters who travelled to the South Eastern part of Nigeria to join their families in celebrating this season are contending with heavy vehicular movements and poor state of the roads.

In this report, Channels Television’s correspondents spoke with some commuters who recount their experiences on the road which is a major gateway to the southwest, including the Enugu-Onitsha Road, the Onitsha-Owerri Road, 9th Mile-Obollo Afor Road, as well as the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway.

It is true! I am from Anambra State.

Each time I travelled to the village, crossing River Niger becomes entering the war zone. I become more apprehensive and vigilant than normal.

If you go to Enugu, Owerri, Awka and other major Igbo towns, returnees are hiding in hotels.
It is disheartening when one's parents will not want their returnee family members to sleep in the house.
If you want to drive out, na wahala. There is this level of fear everywhere.
No one knows who will be the next victim. There are still diehards who go out.
As typical Nigerians, they only anchor their hope on "not my portion".
They go to their houses in the day time and sneek out to sleep in a hotel at night.
Not that it is any safer, but kinda gives them a false sense of invicibility.

The contemporary ala Igbo is a hot mess. This is not a tribal issue but reality.
