Ohanaeze declares Ambode enemy of Ndigbo

Enugu - The apex socio-Igbo cultural organization, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has declared Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State as number one enemy of Ndigbo, NewsDay.

This follows Wednesday’s demolition of Oshodi market, which is believed to be largely occupied by people from the South-East.

The group said Ambode by his actions had drawn a battle line between himself and the entire Igbo land.

National President of the Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC), Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro and the National Secretary, Okwu Nnabuike during a press briefing on Monday in Enugu, described the demolition as an action done in bad faith.

The group wondered why Ambode would ordered the demolition when most the owners of the shops were in their villages for the Christmas and the New Year festivities.

The group stated that the demolition could be the starting point in the implementation of the Oba of Lagos’s earlier threat during the 2015 general elections that Igbos would be thrown into the lagoon.

While maintaining that the Lagos State Government’s action was a threat to the unity of the country, the group demanded for adequate compensation for the traders, who had suffered great losses as a result of the demolition.
