Eze Ndigbo Deserves Same Blame As Oba Akiolu - A Tale of Two Nonsense Leaders [Audio]

Posted in: ,

It is amazing how debased some Nigerians are, using archaic customs and superstitions to cloak incipient hatred and tribalism. ThisDay had earlier today reported that the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu received a political delegation of Igbo lead­ers in Lagos State, and at the event, he warned them to vote the APC governorship candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Am­bode, as the next governor of the state. To buttress his point, he called on his traditional powers over the Lagos Lagoon to drown his opponents.

While some denied the reports, Oba Akiolu himself said he was only relating a myth about the Lagoon. Now with the release of an audio of the event, it is clear to all that the Oba threatened genocide on Igbos in Lagos if they voted against his political choices. The Oba indeed said the Igbos will all die inside the Lagos Lagoon as his ancestors had proclaimed, and denigrated Igbo centers of commerce - Onitsha and Aba - also in the process.
