''Oba Of Lagos Didn’t Threaten Igbos'' - IGP

Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba has reacted to Oba Rilwan Akiolu’s controversial threat to Igbos.

While briefing journalists on Tuesday, the IGP said the royal father did not threaten Igbos resident in Lagos State.
He said the royal father has denied the allegations.

According to, he said “On the issue of Oba of Lagos making a statement about who the electorate should vote for in the governorship election, I must tell you I saw it in the media and I tried all my best to verify whether that statement was made and, so far, what I have been able to gather is the fact that the Oba himself denied it, and if the Oba denied it, who am I to say that he did make it.

However, if for any reason that becomes a subject of further efforts to confirm if he did it or not, we will do it,” he said.

Obasanjo and Buhari held a secret meeting in Lagos yesterday(See Photos)

A private meeting was held without the presence of any external person(s), between former President, Olusegun Obasanjo and President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, in Lagos.

The ex-Generals reportedly met at the Presidential wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport for almost an hour. This happened when the APC  leaders came to Lagos to campaign for the party’s governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode.

The meeting was held shortly before heading out to campaign in the Orile area of the state.

A member of Buhari’s entourage told Punch Newspapers that: “Gen. Buhari and former President Obasanjo were in the inner lounge of the presidential wing of the airport where they held a secret meeting for almost an hour.”
“The National Chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, Governor Rotimi Amaechi, Senator Chris Ngige and many of us were made to stay at the main lounge throughout the meeting. We do not really know what was discussed but it must have been very sensitive.”

Forgive Oba Akiolu and move on, Buhari tells Igbo

The President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has urged the Ndigbo and other non-indigenes in Lagos State to forgive all that has been said against them and move on for the sake of peace.
Buhari said this during a rally in Lagos to address the comments made by the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu.
He said, “I admire what your governor has done in terms of mobilising revenue to sustain Lagos development. I have a lot of respect for Governor Fashola for his hard work, commitment to the state and the country. There is no doubt that Lagos is a mini-Nigeria. We are all here and it has been mentioned by previous speakers that everybody (tribe) is adequately represented in Lagos.
“So, I assure you. If you vote for the continuity of APC in Lagos, you stand to gain more. It is in your interest that you vote for the APC.
“Please when you go home tell your neighbours, relatives and even the opposition to please bury the hatchet. Let them fall in line and vote the APC.
“When we were coming in our bus, Fashola told me how Lagos State had been spending to maintain the federal infrastructure here such as buildings, roads and other institutions. I had promised before that if I won the election and became the President, I would make Lagos my priority. Governor Fashola is already holding to me to that promise so I would like the incoming governor to listen carefully and make sure he makes me honour my undertaking.”
Akiolu has been under fire since Monday when he reportedly threatened the Ndigbo in Lagos to either vote for the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, or perish in the lagoon.
The PDP on Tuesday asked Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola to suspend Akiolu forthwith.
However, the President-elect described Lagos as home for all, adding that the time had come for Nigerians to look past ethnicity in the general interest of peace and unity.
