Breaking: Lagos State Govt Denies Abolishing Eze Igbo Titles In Lagos


The Lagos State government said it has not abolished all Eze Ndigbo titles in the state at present, describing the reports making the rounds as “April fool.”

The clarification came following viral reports on social media on Saturday that the state government has abolished Eze Ndigbo titles in Lagos.

This came on the arrest of Eze Ndigbo, Ajao Estate of the state 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.

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.”

  1. Thank you Mr governor

  2. This our South West governors particularly Lagos State can not act firmly on action of useless Eze of Ajao Zone becos they are lily livered and cowardice reducing a treasonable action committed by that self styled trouble maker Eze to politics showing that he has signed suicidal agreement of equal participation with the Igbos who have promised to bring in IPOB to cause mayhem and set Lagos on fire.Could any Yoruba traditional representatives in the Eastern States issue such a threat there without the people not go physically after such Yoruba representative.The heaven will not fall if all illegal Ezes were abolished.Whats your fear for not doing what is necessary to protect your own people .These people from the Eastern Region are too violent and and always militant at the least provocations.
