Apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth
Council Worldwide has described the continual assaults on the Igbos residing in
Lagos State as unacceptable.


Assaults on Igbos in Lagos have continued after the
presidential election. The President-elect, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives
Congress, APC, misplaced his dwelling state, Lagos, to Peter Obi of the Labour Celebration.



The Igbo group was reacting to the arson on Akere market,
dominated by Igbo merchants. A safety guard was killed through the incident
carried out by suspected political thugs, with over 200 retailers burnt.



Ohanaeze youths, in an announcement on Friday by its Nationwide
President, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike stated some personalities, together with Femi
Fani-Kayode must be arrested for making inciting statements earlier earlier than
the assault.


DAILY POST remembers that the APC chieftain had accused the
Labour Celebration governorship candidate in Lagos State, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour of
enjoying Igbo playing cards.



Based on Fani-Kayode: “How can such a effectively introduced up
& distinguished younger man be a type of that joined the mob to burn buses
through the Endsars riots?


“How can he be a type of that turns his again on his personal
Yoruba folks, hero worship secessionists like Ojukwu & conspire handy
over Lagos to the Igbo. Can any Igbo man do this for a Yoruba within the East? Is
he conscious of what the Yoruba have been subjected to in components of the east through the
simply concluded presidential election?



“Does he know the variety of Igbos that have been killed, tortured
& whose properties have been burnt within the east just because they dared to vote for
Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a Yoruba man?



“I really like the Igbo & I consider in a plural society which
welcomes all ethnic nationalities & creeds however handy Lagos over to them
as a manner of compensating them for his or her previous woes is absurd.


“That may be absurd and suicidal and we’ll NEVER permit
it to see the sunshine of day. What occurred to this in any other case good and
cerebral younger man known as Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour? What has received into him? Is he
possessed? Is he in want of prayer and deliverance?”

the spare components market was a case of “a witch crying within the night time and a child

the bottom for the mayhem being unleashed on the Igbo folks in Lagos. Aside
from the market hearth, many Igbo folks have been attacked in numerous components of



“There are additionally stories of some Igbo merchants being chased
away from their retailers. That is completely uncalled for, unacceptable and will
finish forthwith.



“Ndigbo have suffered sufficient injustice on this nation and
it shouldn’t be allowed to proceed. It’s incomprehensible that Fani-Kayode
ought to model the LP candidate as an IPOB apologist. What it means is that
Fani-Kayode’s youngsters from his estranged spouse Chinwendu are all IPOB members.


“We all know Fani-Kayode as a person with out character; he says one
factor within the morning and one other within the afternoon, modifications once more within the night time
as soon as meals is dangled earlier than him.



“Nevertheless, he ought to let Ndigbo be and never drag us into his
inconsistent character. His claims of supporters of Tinubu being killed in
the South-East through the presidential election is simply a type of his
moonlight tales and must be discountenanced.


“Each native and worldwide observers have been within the
South-East through the polls and attested to the truth that the folks of the
South-East disenchanted bookmakers, together with Fani-Kayode who ready the zone
for a massacre. He’s offended that Ndigbo got here out to vote.



“Having stated this, we urge the President Muhammadu
Buhari-led Federal Authorities and Governor Sanwo-Olu to make sure the safety
of Igbo folks in Lagos.



“No one is above the legislation; this is the reason Fani-Kayode and his
paymasters must be held liable for all of the atrocities in opposition to Ndigbo in
Lagos. He should certainly be held liable.


“No one, I repeat no person can intimidate Ndigbo on this
nation; every other additional assault on Igbos in Lagos will probably be resisted, irrespective of
these behind the preparators.



“Ndigbo ought to exit on March 18 and solid their votes for
the candidate of their selection.


“Might we remind Fani-Kayode and his ethnic jingoists {that a}
Fulani man from Sifawa in Sokoto Caliphate – Mallam Umaru Altine, in 1952,
grew to become elected as the primary Mayor of the Metropolis of Enugu, the center land and
heartbeat of the Igbo Nation. He was in workplace until 1958.
