Ohaneze Declares Ambode as Number One Enemy of Ndi’Igbo

by on March 29, 2016

Ohanaeze Ndigbo has declared Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode as number one enemy of  Ndigbo.

The development is sequel to the demolition of Oshodi market, which is believed to be largely occupied by Ndigbo on the first week of the New Year.

National President of the Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, made the declaration alongside the National Secretary, Okwu Nnabuike saying Ambode by his actions had drawn a battle line between himself and the entire Igbo land.

“It is instructive to observe here that contrary to all principles of common justice, the traders were merely given few days quit notice. It is equally shocking that the government chose such a wrong time for the demolition exercise, thereby not only taking the shops from them but making sure that their wares were looted.”

“We are forced to ask: could this be the starting point in implementing Oba of Lagos’s earlier threat during the election period that Ndigbo would be thrown into the Lagoon? Could it be another round of deportation of exercise, similar to what former governor Fashola did? These appear to be so considering that a witch cried in the night and a child died in the morning.”

“It is quite inhuman for people’s means of livelihood to be taken away from them in such a manner. The government’s claim that arms were recovered from a section of the market does not fly at all here because it cannot be a reason for such a wicked treatment purely targeted on a particular people.

“We demand that the Governor of Lagos State should direct relevant government agencies to adequately compensate these traders; anything short of that, Ndigbo will henceforth regard the Governor as their number one arch-enemy”.

The group further demanded for adequate compensation of the traders who had suffered great losses as a result of the demolition.

While describing the demolition as “an action done in bad faith”, the group wondered why the Lagos State Government should carry out such act at a time when it clearly knew that the owners of the shops were in their villages for the Christmas and the New Year festivities.

    The market men/women should go to court let the court give them adequate ground and support to fight for their rights.
