When you declared sit at home, did they not complied?


Racoon:
And No Yorubas in all those places you mentioned? Are they living in servitude or enjoying oppression because they are living in the middle of their hosts?

An election that was marked by voter suppression, ethnic discrimination, political thuggery, and violent attacks on voters, electoral staff and security personnel alike. Don't worry. It will reach everybody every where.

Ibos, living with the people you don't like is not by force..

At least , you are not the only tribe living among the Yoruba people in lagos. .

And , if any of you felt that he or she is being cheated...

instead of constituting nuisance to the society. .abeg leave


The post said they wanted to vote but the thugs said they should not vote. What wrong was done here? I hope you understand that most conflict in Africa is as result of things of this nature.

Let's see how long the people will ensure.

LAGOS—The Supreme Council of Ndi Eze Ndi Igbo in Lagos, yesterday, called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the state to release one of their traditional rulers, Eze Chinedu Mozie, detained by the police after he challenged thugs that stopped him and his people from voting in the just concluded governorship and House of Assembly elections at the riverine community of Ibasa Satellite town.

The council alleged Eze Mozie was manhandled and beaten up after he resisted an attempt by the thugs numbering over 50 to lynch him, as he ran into the palace of the Bale of the community for refuge only for the Bale to hand him over to the police, who arrested and took him to the State Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Bureau, SCIIB, Panti, Yaba and is still being detained.

In a statement by the Chairman, Vice-Chairman and Secretary of the council, Eze Lawrence Eze, Eze Vincent Iwobi and Eze Edwin Obi, they said the victim and Igbo community have lived peacefully with their host until the ugly incident and wondered why they should be restricted from exercising their constitutional rights in the same community.

According to the statement, “On March 18, 2023, Eze Mozie went out as the leader of Igbo community in Ibasa riverine to exercise his constitutional right of voting. In the course of doing this, he was accosted by Oba of Ibasa community, who bluntly told him that the Igbos were no longer allowed to participate in any electoral process in Lagos State, that it was an order from above.

“Eze Mozie explained that he has the constitutional right as a tax-paying citizen to exercise his voting right in his place of domicile. This explanation fell on deaf ears as the Oba authorised the youths of the community with masquerades to resist the Igbo community led by Eze Mozie from casting their votes by manhandling him.

“In a twinkle of an eye, it degenerated into physical exchange of blows with the use of cudgels, broken bottles, cutlasses and all manner of dangerous weapons by the Oba and his people against the Eze and other Igbos.

“Consequently, Eze tried to defend himself to avoid being lynched and ran into the palace of the Oba, who immediately summoned the police to effect the arrest of Eze Mozie by the police from Panti, while Eze Mozie was bleeding profusely from all parts of his body, unable to walk or talk and he is currently being detained at Panti.”

When contacted, Lagos State police spokesman, Benjamin Hyndai said he would investigate the report.

Lesson must be learnt. He should go and exercise his voting right in Biafra republic.
The IGBOs overstepped the gestures given 2 them on a platter of Gold.
Time up
The earlier, the nicest thing to do for those ungrateful IGBOs in Lagos "move your biznesses to Biafra republic.
Tinubu and Sanwo Eko do not need your cooperation to move Nigeria and Lagos forward.
Go and wail with your Twitter president.
Frustrated people rejecting a free and fair election.
Always crying villain.

With the number of Yorubas in the se and ss am yet to hear any story of disenfranchisement meted against them in those regions, but as they say "the hen always comes home to roost", it's just a matter of time but for now let us allow them have Thier filled day....

So when have u seen yorubas interfere or threaten the indigenes of se & ss in their state.. We don't... We respect people, we don't pass our boundaries nor insult their leader...


If you are not okay wit us, U can pursue them to SW, we will gladly have them back.

But will igbos ever leave SW, never.. They rather die here than go back to alaigbo

Look at what APC has turned yoruba into, because according to them "Igbos taunted" and like cry babies they decided to throw tantrum. Now we know what APC/Yoruba mumu button is. Trust that the button will be pressed countless time, maybe one day, yorubas will burn Lagos down with everything in it because 'Igbos are calling Lagos a No Man's Land' according to them. I've never seen this childishness in my entire life, and trust me I have lived quite long.

APC on behalf of Yorubas have opened Pandora's box. They can blame Igbo all the want, but every other ethnic group they have offended with their barbarism know where the fault lies. They know who turned them away from exercising their rights to vote. And it isn't Igbo.


Jesus this is so disheartening, can't believe this.
We yorubas aren't like this before Apc came into our lives, we were a sophisticated tribe and accommodators, what happened to that?

Now the whole world have seen through us and what we are, just because of a simple election.

Let us not our those bad eggs among us, soil our name to the general public.
Yoruba ronu oooo...
stop blabbing you are not Yoruba but Igbo, I think next time you will respect your host, this is the last time Igbo will dab into Lagos politics

Can you swear with your life that your kinsmen where stopped from voting Thier APC or any of Thier choice party in any of the se states?.....

That is where you all get it wrong, every great enterprise starts very small...you all feel that the ala-igbo is some dungeon or something, if I where you I will try and put a call over to those your kinsmen living in the se and learn more about that place but no you all choose to believe the lies your people publish in the media 😊 which I really love, you people should keep living in your delusions.

If the Igbo nation make up Thier minds that they want to leave the entire SW today believe me all it will take is a few years and you people won't even notice it until everything is done.

The se has alot of uncharted lands for instance the vast lands that extends from aba goin to pH or is it the one from Enugu going to imo?, There are alot of them I mean alot, so wether they sell or don't sell I think you should leave them to worry about that my friend 😊.

For Police to have arrested him means he started the fracas and probably injured one of the indigenes.. the prayer now is that whoever the man injured recovers if not Igbos go hear am in Lagos. Make e no be say dem go sacrifice many of them to Yoruba deities in the coming days grin

Igbo ma n wa wahala ni.. when the wahala starts, they always run or start begging.

Same thing one Ezendigbo did in Akure at Deji's palace that they flogged hell out of him.

Lagos is Yorubaland and Police or Soldiers won't save you when gbege burst cos y'all are surroumded.. It takes wisdom to understand that but it's like these folks aren't in any way wise.. no offence.

Police arrested him, they are not calling on police to release him, or hire lawyer to go to court and fight for his release, they are calling on governor instead. Sanwo should ignore them. Ibo always like short cut into everything.
