Igbo Appeal To Lagos Govt, Police To Protect Them After Elections by CHM11: 8:08am On Apr 12, 2015
The Igbo in Lagos have appealed to Lagos State government and the state Commissioner of Police,

Mr Kayode Aderanti, to put security measures in place to ensure the protection of their lives and property after the general elections.

The appeal came just as they demanded an apology from Oba Rilwan Akiolu of Lagos over his comment that the Igbo would perish in the Lagos lagoon, in seven days, if they did not vote for his choice governorship candidate in yesterday’s elections.

The Chairman, Ohaneze Ndigbo in Amuwo Odofin local government area, Chief Akalika Emmanuel, explained that the call for the protection of life and property became necessary to avoid unforeseen circumstances.

Acknowledging the intervention of the president elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, and opinion leaders from Igbo and Yoruba land, Emmanuel stated that the Igbo had sheathed their sword in demonstration of their love for Lagos State, as well as their maturity and willingness to be each other brothers’ keepers.

Nevertheless, he demanded that a documentary prove that such threat from Akiolu would not repeat itself be made available, adding that the property of Ndi -Igbo would not be unduly taxed nor demolished, no matter the direction of the victory of yesterday’s governorship election.

Continuing he said: “We also demand that our business premises and other matters of interest will not come under any form of intimidation now or in future”.

Funny set of people.

Why ganging up against a candidate?

Common sense should mean that Igbos in Lagos will be neutral in Lagos gubernatorial election and allow individuals vote as they wish.

I Thought they will only be in trouble if Agbaje wins. Since Ambode won, what's the issue.

My take on this is that yoruba land being known for her hospitality and peaceful co-existent can assure the igbos of the safety of lives, business and properties but they should also prepare to respect us in our own land and stop acting as though they are co-owner of the land with us, they should stop treating us with hate and disdain. If they know they cannot comply with these they should go back to their land.

Lagos will continue to accommodate all ethnic groups BUT there must be sanity. All shops in Ladipo, Alaba, Idumota need to be rebuilt and re-allocated - those places are just too filthy. If you dont like it, Ekene Dili Chukwu to the rescue- onward to your village
