Lagos - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lambasted the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, for allegedly threatening Igbo people to vote for the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode, or face death, reports Vanguard.
The party in a statement on Monday said it was most unfortunate that a royal father of the status of the Oba of Lagos should attempt to drag the revered traditional institution into partisan politics to the level of threatening innocent Nigerians with the view to prevent them from freely exercising their constitutionally guaranteed right.

The party urged all Igbos in Lagos to turn against this unpatriotic stance, by coming out enmasse to vote for the PDP candidate, Jimi Agbaje on Saturday.
