The Lagos State administration said it has not yet abolished all Eze Ndigbo titles in the state, calling the reports “April fool”
The clarification came after reports on social media on Saturday that the state administration had abolished Eze Ndigbo titles in Lagos, according to Vanguard.
This followed the arrest of Eze Ndigbo, of the state’s Ajao Estate, for releasing a video calling for an invasion of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, into Lagos to defend Igbo properties, particularly in markets throughout the state.
After being declared illegal by a judge, IPOB was designated as a terrorist organization.
According to Eze Ndigbo of Ajao Estate, “We will invite IPOB terrorism to Lagos to protect our properties and combat anyone who opposes us.” Allow my words to go viral.”
When informed about the abolition of Nze Ndigbo titles in the state, Commissioner for Information and Strategy Gbenga Omotoso denied it.
“It appears to be April Fool’s Day,” Omotoso said plainly. Let us disregard this for the time being.”
Meanwhile, social media accounts state that the “Lagos State Government, LASG, abolishes all Eze Ndigbo titles in the State with immediate effect, and warns all Lagos State Local Government Chairmen to be on high alert.”
