Lagos did not abolish all Igbo titles – Commissioner
CITIZENS COMPASS – LAGOS State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso on Saturday,, April 1, 2023, says, the State government has not abolished all Eze Ndigbo titles in the state.
The Commissioner disclosed this during a conversation.
The state government was reacting to a viral report saying it had abolished the tile describing this as “April fool.”
This came on the arrest of Eze Ndigbo, Ajao Estate after releasing a video calling for an invasion of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, into Lagos for the protection of Igbo properties, especially, in markets across the state.
IPOB after being proscribed by a court was designated as a terrorist group.
According to the Eze Ndigbo, Ajao Estate,“We will invite IPOB terrorism to Lagos to protect our properties in Lagos and combat anyone against us. Let my voice go viral.”
Reacting to the abolishment of Nze Ndigbo titles in the state, when contacted, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, debunked it.
Omotoso simply said, “It seems like April fool. Let’s ignore now.”
Meanwhile, the reports going on social media read: “Lagos State Government, LASG abolishes all Eze Ndigbo titles in the State with immediate effect, warns all Lagos State Local Government Chairmen to be at alert.”
