HOW OBA AFEEZ ALLEGEDLY HIRED MASQUERADES, ATTACKED EZENDIGBO & HAD HIM DETAINED DURING ELECTION

A monarch, the Oba of Ibasa riverline community in Satellite town, Lagos, Oba Oriyomi Shittu Afeez, was said to have allegedly hired masquerades, brutally attacked Ezendigbo in Ibasa, Eze Chinedu Mozie and had him detained at SCID, Yaba, during the Governorship and State Assembly elections.

P.M.EXPRESS reports that presently Eze Mozie is lying critically ill at the SCID Clinic in Yaba without adequate treatment as ordered by Oba Afeez as efforts to get him released have proved abortive.

This was disclosed by the Supreme Council of Igbo traditional rulers (Ezes) led by their Chairman, Eze Lawrence Eze, who raised alarm and is seeking for Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s intervention to save his life.

The Council, which comprises Ezes – Dr.Vincent Iwobi, Eze Ndi Igbo Shasha and Obi Anioma of Lagos, Eze Dr Vincent Iwobi, Eze Oriade, Eze Chukwuakalikamadu Emmanuel, Eze Ndigbo Okota/Isolo, Eze Jude Nnaemeka Arinze, Eze Ndigbo and Asiwaju Ndigbo Mushin, Eze (Dr) John Nwosu and Eze Chukwuemeka Sylvanus Onuaha, Eze Ndigbo Iba, held a press conference on Monday in Lagos.

They stated that their detained colleague, Eze Mozie, had earlier hinted them about threat to life by some people of Yoruba extraction in his community on the need to stay off the streets on the election day because any Igbo speaking person who comes out for the purpose of casting his vote on the day would be severely dealt with.

Speaking on behalf of the Supreme Council of Ndi Eze, their Deputy Chairman and Ezendigbo in Shasha, Eze Iwobi, demanded his immediate release and urged the Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to treat the matter with the urgency it demands in order to avoid further breakdown of law and order in the State.

Narrating what happened, Eze Iwobi stated that on Saturday 18th March, 2023, when Eze Mozie went out to vote, he was accosted by the Oba of Ibasa Riverline, Oba Afeez, who bluntly told him that Igbo people are no longer allowed to participate in the electoral process in Lagos State and that it was an order from above.

However, Eze Mozie, who went to cast his vote with other members of Igbo community in the area, told him that he has constitutional rights to cast his vote as a tax paying citizen in the State.

Unknown to the them, Oba Afeez, who had already arranged youths and masquerades in the community, manhandled the Igbos, attacked them with dangerous weapons alongside the youths and masquerades.
While Eze Mozie was trying to defend himself to avoid being lynched, he ran to the palace of Oba Afeez and the monarch contacted the Police to effect the arrest of Eze Mozie by the SCID Yaba even in the pool of his blood.

For the past three days, Eze Mozie was detained in the SCID Yaba Clinic bleeding profusely from all parts of his body, unable to talk and walk and not receiving adequate treatment Eze Iwobi stated.

It stated that prior to the election, Eze Mozie and the Igbo residents in the area had been living peacefully and therefore, called for the release of Eze Mozie from the Police custody in order to enable him visit the hospital to receive adequate medical attention.
Eze Iwobi also stated that Eze Mozie did not commit any crime and it is the inalienable rights of any Nigerian to live in any place of his choice and that the security agencies should investigate and arrest those behind the dastardly act in order to serve as deterrent to others who might try such in the future.

In my opinion I don’t think thread like this should be posted on this forum, you know it’ll trigger a lot of things. It’s time to preach peaceful coexistence, elections are over let us move on and hope for a better Nigeria with Asiwaju. Be mindful of your posts in this delicate period, opposition are already embracing peace gradually.

This election must be an eye opener to those young igbos .. since history is abolish..let them learn
Rude boy has learnt his lessons too.. and so many others

MC Oluomo spoke and the police that was supposed to act much more long before now downplayed it. The rest is history. Now, even traditional rulers that are supposed to play the role of Peace makers have become another instrument of state terrorism, racial discrimination and injustice.

Imagine what an oba is doing to an eze. When have you heard that a Yoruba traditional rulersl was treated this way in alaigbo? You can build a good society or country based on what the touts, thugs, hooligans, brigands and miscreants metted out to the Igbos during the last election without repercussions.

A lot of things needs to be corrected & the correction is that they should remind all the Eze their main job. Once that is done and obeyed, we all live at peace together..

"...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.

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....effect the arrest of Eze Mozie by the police from Panti, while he 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.

The cant be peace when there is no justice. And where there is no fairness, justice and equity, there can't be develop-ment. Injustice is a grave crime that can't be atoned for. Unity without veracity and agreement is a conspiracy.

This is the same faulty foundation Nigeria was built right from the post-indepedence era. The same scenario throughout its 63 years of forced and failed nationhood. And so will it continue till eternity. Nobody builds on a wrong foundation and survives.
