Halt anti-Igbo violence, its genocide – Nnamdi Kanu’s lawyer, Ejimakor urges Yoruba leaders
By Charity Uwakwe
Aloy Ejimakor, the Special Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has urged Yoruba leaders to stop the extant anti-Igbo violence in Lagos State.
According to Ejimakor, the ongoing anti-Igbo violence in Lagos State is a mini-genocide.
In a tweet, he lamented the silence of Yoruba leaders, stressing that they are complicit.
He wrote: “Dear Yoruba leaders: I demand that you immediately halt the anti-Igbo violence raging in LAGOS. It’s a mini-GENOCIDE & your silence makes you complicit when time for reckoning comes.
“I’m not an Igbo leader, but I’m sure the 70 million Igbos worldwide are with me on this. Oh, #MNK.”
It is no longer news that the outcome of the presidential election in Lagos State, Yorubas and Igbos has been raising dust in the area, as the Yoruba have resort to violence against Ndigbo living in their midst.
It would be recalled that the Labour Party Presidential candidate, Dr. Peter Obi had defeated Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the APC candidate with a wide range.
Consequently, in an attempt to ensure the All Progressives Congress, APC, doesn’t lose in Lagos State during the governorship election, a video emerged of the State’s Parks Management Committee Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, threatening Igbos.
This is even as MC Oluomo had earlier, sternly warned Igbos who won’t vote for APC to stay in their houses.
Ahead of the governorship election, some markets populated by Igbos were also burnt down in Lagos State.
