Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has read the riot act to Igbo leaders and monarchs in Lagos State after summoning all the Eze-Ndigbo in the state to his palace yesterday. He said: “On Saturday, if anyone of you goes against Ambode, the APC gubernatorial candidate who I
picked, that is your end. If it does not happen within 7 days, just know that I am a bastard and it is not my father who gave birth to me.
By the grace of God, I am the owner of Lagos for the time being. On Saturday, if anyone of you, I swear in the name of God, goes against my wish that Ambode will be the next governor of Lagos State, the person is going to die inside this water. For the Igbo and others in Lagos, they should go where the Oba of Lagos heads to.
When they were coming to the state, they did not come with all their houses. But now, they have properties in the state. So they must do my bidding. And that is the bidding of the ancestors of Lagos and God. I am not ready to beg you. Nobody knew how I picked Ambode. Jimi Agbaje, PDP gubernatorial candidate, is my blood relation and I told him that he could never be governor in Lagos for now.
The future belongs to God. I am not begging anybody, but what you people cannot do in Onitsha, Aba or anywhere you cannot do it here.”….. after the threat, many Igbos were seen learning how to swim while some went buying life jackets, so dt they won’t die inside d lagoon after voting for PDP on Saturday….
