Only Political Rascals in Lagos; No War Between Igbo and Yoruba, according to Ohanaeze Ndigbo

Posted by

Igbos and Yorubas in Lagos State are not at war in any way, according to Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, the Chairman of the Council of Elders, Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

Iwuanyanwu, who made this announcement on Saturday at a ceremony in Anambra State to mark Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s first year in office, also denounced those he called political rascals for their racial rhetoric against Igbos in the State.

Voters of southeastern ancestry were specifically targeted during the elections, especially last Saturday’s governorship election.

“I want those in Lagos to understand that there is no war between us and Yorubas. They are merely political rascals, and we will deal with them, Iwuanyanwu said.

“The elders have ordered the secretary general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, [Okey] Emuchay, to form a commission of inquiry to ascertain what was destroyed; people will be held accountable. “.

The Igbo elder said he called a meeting of the Ohanaeze Council of Elders from around the world, who examined the events in Lagos during the meeting that took place on Wednesday.

He said, “I want to tell you that people who attended from our branches in America, Canada, Europe, London, and Nigeria have resolved, and I want those from Lagos to go home and tell those in Lagos.”.

“We have decided that we will never again stand by and let someone take an innocent person’s life. We will all engage in combat with the offender. In no way again!”.

The leader of the Ohanaeze party claimed that residents of the southeast were fellow Nigerians who had “so much” invested in the nation. He responded to the rhetoric urging Igbo sojourners to return to their home country by declaring, “We are not leaving.
