The Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu has threatened to kill all Ndigbo who fails to vote for his anointed candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode, gubernatorial candidate of The Progressive Congress (APC), in the forth coming election.
The Oba who made the threat after summoning all the Eze-Ndigbo in Lagos to his palace. He said, ”On Saturday, if anyone of you goes against Ambode, who I picked, that is your end. If it does not happen within seven days, just know that I am a bastard and it is not my father who gave birth to me.
”By the grace of God, I am the owner of Lagos for the time being. This is an undivided chair. The palace belongs to the dead and those coming in the future. On Saturday, if anyone of you, I swear in the name of God, goes against my wish that Ambode will be the next governor of Lagos State, the person is going to die inside this water.
”For the Igbo and others in Lagos, they should go where the Oba of Lagos heads to. When they were coming to the state, they did not come with all their houses. But now, they have properties in the state. So they must do my bidding. And that is the bidding of the ancestors of Lagos and God.
”I am not ready to beg you. Nobody knew how I picked Ambode. Jimi is my blood relation and I told him that he could never be governor in Lagos for now. The future belongs to God. I am not begging anybody, but what you people cannot do in Onitsha, Aba or anywhere you cannot do it here”.
You would recall the first son of the Oba contested the primaries and lost the House of Representatives seat under the platform of the same All Progressive Congress, We besiege, the Oba should be put to order by relevant authorities and we call on the Nigeria Police Force to take up the matter urgently to avert any bloodshed that may result from the Oba’s treat.
