The president of Ohanaeze Lagos, Chief Solomon Aguene, has debunked the rumour that the Igbo are under attack in Lagos.
Aguene said this in a statement on Saturday.
“There is nothing like that, the leader of all Igbo in the state has said. What appeared to have caused the rumour is the problem arising from the collection of voters cards.
“The Igbo ethnic nationality is not in contention with any tribe. There is harmony, cordiality and friendliness between the Igbo in Lagos and their Yoruba hosts. The Igbo have invested massively in the development of Lagos and would not do anything that can jeopardise these investments,” he said.
Aguene appealed to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to intervene in the matter so that the Igbo in Ojo, Ikotun and some other suburbs in Lagos could get their cards without stress at INEC registration centers.
He said contrary to the claims in the social media, the Igbo have no threat to their peace in Lagos.
