Eze Ndi Igbo in Lagos reacts to Oba of Lagos anti-Igbo comment

Photo: YNaija

The Eze Ndi Igbo in Lagos, Nwabueze Ohazulike, has appealed to Igbo residents in the state to remain calm ahead of Saturday’s gubernatorial election.

In a press conference at his palace in Lagos, Wednesday, Mr. Ohazulike said that he was not part of the group of Eze Ndi Igbos who paid a courtesy visit to the Oba of Lagos on Sunday.

“Eze Ndi Igbo of Lagos State, the head of the Eze Ndi Igbo structure in Lagos State, had no knowledge and was not involved nor invited to the so called courtesy visit to the first class Oba. This speaks volumes,” Mr. Ohazulike said.

“The Igbos have a long history of cordial relationship in Lagos State with the Yoruba community and other Nigerians and shall continue to cherish such relationship and make concerted efforts to protect and enhance it and to continue to promote the spirit of unity of Nigerians, love, peace and inter-ethnic harmony in the state.”

    I knew it. Mr. Akiolu must have selected his own “ezes” to listen to his bigotry. No wonder!!! Hey Mr.Akiolu, pick me the next time to be one of the “ezes” to visit you so that you can TALK ABOUT LAGOON.

    Lagoon drowning, Mr.Akiolu. I bu onye isi mmebi; I bu onye ara; Akulaa!!!

  • Mary

    It is too late, we are tired of all your problems. Igbos can’t live peacefully with anyone, so please go back to your land. Lagosians don’t need you, we built Lagos to attract foreign direct investment, not for some wretches from the ibo villages who always overvalue their worth.

    Please leave Yorubaland with all your drama. The Oba has spoken and we his subjects stand by it, no ibo will prosper in Lagos anymore till they leave Lagos. God will eradicate you from Yorubaland in the mighty name of Jesus, amen.

    • burning spear

      Lagos was built with the resources of the oil Niger delta people——that was why the British who helped APC to impose Buhari on us declared lagos as a special federal capital territory for focused development–with alhaji ribadu as minister———–separation is the only answer–to the Janweed government of APC-

      • Mary

        You don’t know your history and you don’t know anything about Lagos. Kano is the one that gets the bulk of your oil money from the center. Lagos was built by the hard work of Yorubas. Lagos predates the entity called Nigeria and has always been Yoruba land. Lagos state and Oyo state generate more income than all your ibo state combined together, in fact more than most African countries. Separation is the answer, so you move back to your homeland and we are therefore separated.

        Mark my words, as long as you force yourself to stay in Lagos against our desire, nothing good will happen to you there. The Oba has spoken.

        • Nkuu

          YOUR OBA IS IRRELEVANT. MR.AKIOLU IS NOT OBA OF OTHER NIGERIANS, MUMU. SAAARAAP!!!

          GO TO THE LIBRARY NEAREST TO YOU OR PICK UP A DICTIONARY TO FIND WHAT A “REPUBLIC” MEANS AS AGAINST MONARCHY. EWU…SHAARAAP!!!

            Nkuu, that also applies to the Eze Ndigbo that visited him.

            Thanks for illustrating the point I mentioned to Wahala.

            Let all Nigerians go to the polls on Saturday and vote for whomever pleases them. That is why it is called “democracy”.

      You’re nothing but a wretched, two-bit slot with zero sense of history. Lagos was a federal capital and developed with our common resources, it was never “built” like you erroneously claim, it once was a trading outpost under Benin Empire but now belongs to all. Your Oba is a tout and his curses are words in the wind. No Igbo is moving an inch and the knowledge that your lot is not cut of leather means you can only grumble but you can’t sh*t into the air. You are a huge pfool and bigot. Go and chase the Fulani from Ilorin before woryring about Lagos… Chump!

      • baba

        same way you pple taunted the northerners after killing balewa,ahmadu bello,maimalari,largema etc.always full of empty gragra and false sense of invincibility attracting the progrom on yourself in the process.

        • Wähala

          That was over 40yrs ago. Today, no Arabs and foreigners will be fighting your wars bcos the Cold War has ended. If anybody is fund of gra-gra it’s you Yorubas, but like I said, “start sh*t” lets see who runs to Cotonou when Ndigbo spark. Igbo are in Eko forever and there’s no ewedu lover out there who’s going to piss into the air… Go siddon!

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Wahala, please drop the ethnic warrior toga.

            You are way, way beyond and above that.

            You don’t need to descend to this level to prove a worthless point.

            The Oba goofed. Simple.

            The Eze Ndigbo that visited him did worse by not calling him to order immediately.

            All parties to the meeting are irrelevant in government and politics formally, so why are we rending our clothes because of those who do not matter ordinarily?

    There’s no Desmond Tutu in Nigerian Church

    The difference between PDP and APC is now clear. APC is a coalition of Muslims.
    APC stands for Muslim supremacy while PDP is a secular party for all persons.
    Many Christians voted against Christ’s Law in favour of Sharia Law on 28th March.
    They were wholly misled to commit this sin by their reckless and carefree Pastors;
    Pastors Adeboye, Kumuyi, and Oyedepo – form an axis of evil in Christianity.

    Christians in Lagos now realize by themselves that they are living amongst Jihadists.
    The Christians in Lagos now owe themselves a duty to vote and defeat the Islamists.
    This is a peaceful solution to Rilwanu Akiolu’s declaration of POGROM on Christians.
    Vote PDP all the way and get rid of Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his Islamist Jihadists.
    The alternative is armed struggle: a fact Pastors should have seen, but for ignorance.
    Nigerian Pastors do not know their right from their left hand on Nigeria’s political affairs.

    There’s no Desmond Tutu there.

I agree with you it is indeed a crime and instead of the Federal Govt. to do the needful through the DSS or Police by arresting and charging Akiolu (he has no immunity), they are busy playing politics just as they did with Chibok girls and Boko Haram. As per Agbaje winning the governorship election, you aer a better chance of winning lottery so cutt out the induced hysteria; Akiolu goofed, not Ambode, not APC !

    • mary

      Rubbish! Please get your contentious ass out of Lagos. You are all rubbish and we don’t want to see you anymore. Oba has spoken and his words stand. Lagos is not for ibos, go back to your own land with your ezes, there is no place for you in Lagos. You dare the Oba and stay and nothing will ever go well for you in Lagos ever again. Good luck!

      • Nkuu

        Loser. More one million Igbos will move to Lagos within the next year and another 2 million for the north and 500,00 from SS. These Nigerians liberated your parents & grandparents assess from decades of British enslavement.

        IGBO MUST VOTE AGBAJE/PDP. IGBO MUST STOP VISITING MR. RITUALIST AKIOLU. HE DOES NOT DESERVE IT. FULL STOP TO THE SEMI-ILLITERATE WHO MISUNDERSTOOD IGBO COURTESY TO PROSTRATION.

        DEALING WITH MONARCHIES IS IN THE DNA OF EVERY IGBO MAN FOR 1000 YEARS. IGBOS HAVE THEIR TASK CUT OUT FOR THEM WITH MR. AKIOLU.

        AMERICANS TAECH IGBO LANGUAGE TO UNDERSTAND IGBOS AND HERE WE ARE DEALING WITH A PRIMITIVE PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO GET EDUCATED, IN THE REAL SENSE OF IT!!!

      Jonathan remains the only Nigeria president or head of state that led a Nigeria delegation to the IOC meeting 2013. And for ur information. Nigeria has the 4th largest share in the Islamic bank under the leadership of GEJ. Wat secularism are u really talking about here with the PDP

    • omoba

      My candid advise to you on the arms struggle you suggested here is to encourage your igbo people to go back home and start the struggle. with you the struggle continues, your biafra agenda can be resucicated since you have failed in furher poverisation of the people of Nigeria agenda led by your uncle Jonathan in the3 recently concluded presidential elections. You are allowed till may 29, to do this.You and your tribes are no longer welcome in our mist,You are advise to go and we will not miss you.Unfortunately, these pastors you mentioned here are not even saying the same thing politically. Pastor Kumuyi is one pastor who would not dable into political mog water, a man that is being led by the power of holy spirit second per second, while Oyedepo would not mind sending Jonathan’s opponents to hell. he even vacated the pulpit for Jonathan to deliver the message that God gave him to deliver to the church on a sunday worship ! can you imagine that.!! I never knew that Jonathan has become a pastor that now hears and deliver message to the church of God. You have become so blinded just like your leaders that you no longer know your right from your left hand. good luck to you and your tribe.

        @tunde:

        I don’t think so, because Jones himself is a Pastor, you remember?
        He has been saying this thing consistently here since year 2013.
        Jones has been warning for two years now that Nigeria is at risk
        He is consistent that Nigeria is sleep-walking into ISLAMIC STATE.

        • tundemash

          The fact that you consistently repeat same thing does not mean it is truth. It at times points to a state of insanity. If you do know the sick Jones, help him by checking him into a phsychiatric hospital !

        • omoba

          What has your so call christian brother Jonathan brought to you and your generation, nothing but poverty and shame. see what Jonathan a so call christian has done to CAN, see what he has reduced the pastors to! are the pastors worth what they used to be before the advent of Jonathan, a christian, in power? can any one seriously trust and believe in many of the prophecies and preaching of these pastors, can you objectively compare them with muslim clerics even when we claim that they are unbelievers, see what Jonathan your christian brother has turnred the church to, a mere place of dollar exchange! certainly God’s own jugment will start from the church.say the holy bible. We are on the last days when peoples’ love will wax cold and men will be lovers of money and properties than the love of God. Let no one preach religion here because religion only devide, destroy and kills, but faith build and make trong what the enemies strives to destroy.

      That should be in Aba or Onitsha. Tell me where in the East Yorubas are accorded the kind of accommodation Yorubas in Lagos accorded Igbos.

    • omoba

      I see igbos as bunch of ingrates, they live and transact their dubious business outside of their domain particularly in Lagos and other parts of yoruba land and yet would not respect the tradition and culture of the land. Yorubas have tolerated these ones for too long, time to tell them to go to blazes, they should carry their fake businesses back to their land or is it a course on them not to live in their own land? Both the leaders and the led of igbo race are all yester-years people. always think in the past and never current in thinking. We the Yorubas can certainly live without these fake people, it is so evident now, so let them be shown the way out of our land, we will not miss them.

        You speak like a thug cum arsonists. Did the Igbos in anyway prevent you from economic empowerment. No. Even with only lousy 20 Nigerian pounds then they got to where they are today, does it not tell you that Whom God has blessed no one can curse

        • omoba

          Twenty pounds was even too much, next time, dont ever start what you have no capacity to finish. chikena. listen to the voice of wisdom since your ohaneze leadership can not direct you aright, when they start thinking in the current as against arrears, I mean when they open to same page with others, then, we may start speaking the same language, but for now, they remain in the back seat. what I expect from them is to bring up their national anthem which is “we are marginalize o” the same false message they gave you and which you gullibly accepted that APC and Buhari are muslim jihadists. yet with the turn of events, one would think that some of you will start to see reason and make a U turn, but for you, that is not to be.then one would expect that in your foolishness, go back to your tent oh igbos!

    President Barack Obama’s decision to provide undeclared backing to the All Progressives Congress (“APC”) and General Buhari, violated a long-time American convention of non-interference in the elections of other sovereign nations.

    The series of patronizing actions, sponsored by the White House, culminated in a joint statement on March 30th 2015 by the American Secretary of State Mr. John Kerry and British Foreign Secretary Mr. Philip Hammond, alleging that the election results “may be subject to deliberate political interference”.

    This broadside was released when the vote collation was still ongoing, thereby casting undue aspersion not only on the entire electoral process and the almost thirty million voters who participated in it, but indeed the nation itself.

    This was the second unsolicited and unwarranted diatribe by the American and British pair, the first being the denigrating joint missive authored by the same duo on March 21st 2015, precisely seven days prior to the election.
    The said election has already occurred, but the repercussions from the historic event shall continue to generate reactions for many days, weeks, months, years and perhaps for all time

  • Joe

    HELP! HELP!! HELP!!!, APC is destroying our traditional institutions.

  • Lagos Lawyer

    Editor Premium Times,

    Under no theory of law can Muujaheeden Rilwanu Akiolu remain as the Oba of Lagos.
    Pogrom is an international crime. Genocide is an international crime. Rilwanu Akiolu’s
    declaration of intent to commit both is a direct breach of public peace. Akiolu must go!!
    It is mandatory under the 1999 Constitution that Rilwanu Akiolu be REMOVED from office,
    by an executive order. He is an improper person. Genocide is not redressible by apology.

    • Goodie

      Under the new international law of self-defence lately declared by
      the International Court of Justice, the Igbo in Lagos may lawfully arrest
      Oba Rilwanu Akiolu and dis-able him by any means to pre-empt his
      declared intent to violate international law forbidding genocide; and If
      Rilwanu Akiolu be badly wounded or injured, there shall be no liability,
      because in law – as at today – Rilwanu Akiolu is deemed an international
      criminal who may be arrested and wounded by anybody in this world
      .

        is not funny, please! It is big catastrophe that Lagos Christians still pay tithes
        to those useless Pentecostal Pastors who are hiding under their wives legs,
        when POGROM is being declared on ALL their congregation if they don’t vote
        for the ISLAMIST APC PARTY. Christians should stop paying tithes in all churches.

      • Benny

        Your Oba attracted that insult to himself by opening his basket mouth to say such to the Igbo’s, mind you we are never minority. Why must he on earth say such. He is only trying to disintegrate Nigeria. Yoruba’s and the Igbo’s has a long standing relations, why must he fall prey to partisan politics, how much was he paid to ruin this relationship? Are Yoruba’s not in the SE? My wife is a Yoruba and she has condemned this act. What you guys should be doing is to apologise to the Igbos because they have helped you to develop Lagos and the must be allowed to exercise their franchise. Truly if the gods have chosen ambode, let him rely on the gods and leave the Igbos alone. Igbos please watch your back o this people are not your brothers it is now obvious

It is such clowns who went calling on Akiolu that has attracted insults to Ibos in general and this charade of Eze Ndigbo in any part of Nigeria must be stopped sofort! The only traditional leaders Igbos have are in Alaigbo, that’s where their areas of influence must end instead of these clowns in Kano, Zungeru, Lagos or anywhere else for that matter, masquerading as representatives of the Igbo.

      Oba Of Lagos Locks Up IdumotaTraders Shops And Orders Them To Go To Ambode’s Rally.

      **Oba’s thugs ordered us to shut our shops. They gave us 10 minutes to Lock and join waiting Buses to Ambode’s rally in Orile

      Hundreds of shop owners, especially of Igbo, were reportedly forced to shut-down their shops at the Idumota Market, Lagos Island and ordered to go and join the APC candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode .
      This is coming when the Lagos monarch is under heavy criticism for threatening to deal with Igbo residents of Lagos if they ddid not vote for his APC candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode.
      One of the traders in an sms message to reporters said, “We arrived Idumota market to our shops as early as 8am. Shortly after, some thugs came, ordering us shut our shops on the orders of Oba Akiolu. They gave us 10 minutes to hurriedly close shops and join the waiting vehicles parked in front of his palace, and heading to Orile, venue of Ambode’s campaign led by the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.”

      Some of the Igbo traders who deal on pharmaceutical products in the market said when they arrived the market, some messengers informed them that Oba Akiolu ordered everyone to close shop and join buses numbering over 100.

    I have just google ‘the paramount/first class Yoruba Oba in Onitsha’ and nothing tangible came up. I think what is good for the goose is also good for the gander. I remember when Obasanjo became the president and some Yorubas residents of Abuja paid him a visit, a man in a Yoruba traditional attire introduced himself as the Yoruba Oba in Abuja. Trust baba Iyabo, the tongue lashing the guy got from Obasanjo, he will never forget. He took him down memory lane and told him not to turn a city of unity to a sectional interest city.

      Could Obj have made the same comment to a group of Fulani cow-hands visiting him in aso rock—————Its only when election is drawing close that we hear these types of statements—————-How many traditional rulers in the SS did u see urge Igbos to vote for Jonathan—? The Oba was ordered by Tinubu to talk to the Igbos–now the man has been left in the cold to sweat it out all by himself—The same APC it was that ordered almajiris never to mention the name of Jonathan in public—-or even steal an glance at his posters————-

    Umeh-Nzekwe, who had contested for governor of Lagos state in 2003, said the APC had nothing to offer the Igbo people in the state other that the “peanuts” and “handouts” they had thrown their way in the bid to deceive them, whereas with the PDP opportunities abound.

    “Since PDP has given us opportunities to grow by allowing Ndi Igbo to win three House of Reps seats in LAGOS and go to Abuja to defend Igbo interest and Lagos interest, because we are all Lagosian .

    “Then I’m of the candid opinion that it’s better you support what you are having tha go join APC who have nothing to offer–its better for Igbos to vote for Jim Agbaje who is now one of us-

      Ur rite you have enough to steal in PDP, its your natural greed that take you to where you have monetary benefits, the legitimacy does not matter, thats why most of you are in PDP simply because by nature ur criminals.

    CHRISTIANS ARE IN BIG TROUBLE!!!!

    See O, Adolf Hitler did pogrom on the Jews. Rwanda Hutu did genocide on Rwanda Tutsi.
    Now, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu wants to do BOTH pogrom and genocide together on Christians.
    And Mohammadu Buhari does NOT condemn Oba Akiolu, just because they are both Muslims.
    Can you see now? See how Yoruba Christians went and voted pogrom-genocide on themselves.
    People who have knowledge had told us here that APC is an Islamic Jihad disguised as a party.
    Yoruba Christians did not listen at that time. They have seen it now. They are in real trouble!

      your reasoning is very shallow.you are in another man”s land and contending with him over his patrimony while safeguarding your own patrimony very well in the SE.tell me,how many yoruba councillors do we have in the entire south east?u demand so much rights from your yoruba hosts yet will never reciprocate 1 inch in response then start shouting tribalism and bigotry.u igbos must understand that it takes 2 to tango not a one way traffic.u should equally offer what u are demanding of others.this is not a religious issue

          My friend, there is nothing like igbophobia here.the truth is bitter but atimes must be said.pls learn what we call reciprocity.assuming we have just 1 or 2 yoruba commissioners in the east, all these lagos imbroglio wd not have come up or u mean u dont have just 1 competent yorubaman in the whole of the SE? The buttomline, extend to others what u demand of them.i dont hate u.i dont have anything against u but the events of last 2 weeks is creating needless animosity

        God bless you, Baba. I wrote the same thing on another blog. Igbos are demanding a thing they can never give others in their own states! I don’t blame them. I blame Tinubu, a very liberal minded politician, who gave Igbos the huge opportunity. Can Igbos ever try this nonsense in Kaduna, Kano, Sokoto, Dutse?

    Oba Of Lagos Locks Up IdumotaTraders Shops And Orders Them To Go To Ambode’s Rally where Buhari was billed to address them.

    **Oba’s thugs ordered us to shut our shops. They gave us 10 minutes to Lock and join waiting Buses to Ambode’s rally in Orile

    Hundreds of shop owners, especially of Igbo, were reportedly forced to shut-down their shops at the Idumota Market, Lagos Island and ordered to go and join the APC candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode .
    This is coming when the Lagos monarch is under heavy criticism for threatening to deal with Igbo residents of Lagos if they ddid not vote for his APC candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode.
    One of the traders in an sms message to reporters said, “We arrived Idumota market to our shops as early as 8am. Shortly after, some thugs came, ordering us shut our shops on the orders of Oba Akiolu. They gave us 10 minutes to hurriedly close shops and join the waiting vehicles parked in front of his palace, and heading to Orile, venue of Ambode’s campaign led by the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.”

    Some of the Igbo traders who deal on pharmaceutical products in the market said when they arrived the market, some messengers informed them that Oba Akiolu ordered everyone to close shop and join buses numbering over 100.

      BUT HE IS ANGRY THAT FAR MORE INTELLIGENT IGBO PEOPLE DID WHAT

      ANY CONSTITUTIONALLY IN-ELIGIBLE CANDIDATE PRESENTED BY APC:

        “Yes o! Rilwanu Akiolu must be REMOVED to restore public peace.

        Over to you Jimi Agbaje. Let the king-makers present a name of
        the new Oba of Lagos to you for approval without further delay,

        so as to avoid a civil war in Lagos, should any Igbo man or

      Igbo can stay home. Idumota Market is owned by Lagos Oba, and he can shut it down anytime. If you do not like it, go back to Onitsha or Enugu

      • domy

        I am very sure that you don’t have any shop and possibly not dreaming of owning one in the nearest future. It’s all because you have also sold your birth right too like others but it’s better late than never.

None of the Obi’s will take that from a yoruba man. The video was a set cos your Eze was not aware of the visit to Oba and the ATTENDEES called themselves Igbo leaders. We need the full video if truely it wasn’t a setup.

    Success has numerous friends but failure is an orphan. Everybody seems to own Lagos because is rich and excellent. But a state like Ebonyi,Kebbi, or Ekiti is tagged as a ‘man’s land’ why people call Lagos a no man’s land. Success indeed has plenty of relatives whereas failure is an orphan. Lols.

    All this so called Eze Ndigbo in Lagos, Abuja, Kafanchang, Kirikiri, you are nothing but a disgrace to Ndigbo.
    Do we have Oba or Emir in Abia, Akwa Ibom, Enugu ?.
    You left your homes with the blessings of your people to go search for jobs and means of livelihoods in , but what did you do ?.
    You went out and create a crown and a palace for yourself.
    When your Ezes at home issued a statement, you stay they and counter it, but when you run into trouble and your shopes , houses and properties are burnt , that is when you will remember home.
    One Agwuata man went to Uyo and became a so called Eze Ndigbo in Uyo, took another wife , an indigen of Uyo, built for himself a palace at Uyo but had no house in his village. when he died, it was a disgrace. The wife from Uyo laid claim to all his properties at Uyo.
    Why should Ndigbo be angry over the Oba’s comment ?.

    • Dapsy Ayo

      Many top leading Yoruba leaders have condemned the Oba statement. His statement is unfair to the igbos and to Ambode, he has only succeeded in throwing spanner into Ambode’s effort.. He is no position to speak for Ambode or APC . I believe this should be enough for the Igbos. Now demanding that the Oba apologizes or be dethrone for you !! is the height of irresponsible talk. The igbos should not capitalise on the error of one Man to destroy the good and cordial relationship they have always enjoyed with the yorubas.

      There are many Yorubas in the SE who have lived there many years. They are not allowed to own Land or build house talk less of standing for Election. All these the igbos have enjoyed in the South west. The Oba must not insulted or ridiculed just as an Obi or an Emir cannot be. God Bless Nigeria
