April 11, 2015 – Igbo Leader Present At Meeting With Lagos King Oba Akiolu Defends Him, Says PDP Playing Politics

Lagos-based lawyer and industrialist, Chukwudi Atueyi recently talked with Vanguard on what transpired on the day Eko king Oba Rilwan Akiolu allegedly cursed all Igbos planning to vote for PDP governorship candidate Jimi Agbaje.

Read Mr Atueyi’s account of what happened on the day;

“All the Eze Ndi Igbo honorary in Lagos went to pay HRM solidarity visit on Sunday and I was fortunate to be among those present at the said meeting. What the Oba said was fully and simply directed to only the Igbos present at the meeting who his majesty considers to be very close to him and should understand him well enough.”

“You know when one talks to his very close friends and subjects, he tends to be very free with them, so he was being very free with those present at the meeting and wanted us to realize how serious and close he takes us and our votes, because he cannot imagine us giving him our words only to turn back and do the very opposite.”

“He did not force us to the meeting, we were the ones that went to him on solidarity visit, so it would be very evil of us to only go and deceive him there. He only jokingly (at least as it appeared to me then) warned the people present at the meeting who he considers his own people.
The said warning that we are supposed to be very conversant with since we have all the “Ëze Ndi Igbo” present there, as that was not the first time we visited him. We are all already aware of the Yoruba culture and understood perfectly what he meant. There was no specific place he referred to all the Igbos in Lagos.”

“He was only addressing the Igbos with him present there whom he considers his own people and he simply observed his culture which we all quite understood and this explains why there was applause and laughter at the end of his speech. We were expected to, thereafter, talk to our people in civilized manner to convince them and canvass for their votes if we truly believe we are capable of doing so.”

“The tradition of lagoon water threat was directed only to those present at the meeting as culture demands. Though he appeared serious but we all understood it as a joke, that was why we all applauded him and made fun of it there.”

“So I suspect serious politics at play here. I wouldn’t know who recorded the speech and decided to play politics with it. It is most unfair to his majesty to be portrayed in this manner and I think I owe it as a duty to speak up before things get out of hand.”

    PDP should just go to sleep and stop creating unnecessary confusions in order to destabilise the peaceful transition of democracy, after their 16 years of failure and incompetence in government. Years of dirty politics are over in Nigeria.

    This Chukwudi is not an Igbo man, He is a paid agent. How could any sane man defend oba Akiolu who was caught on video ranting and threatening Igbos. The video is all over the world. It makes no sense defending him. If Chukwudi is not a paid agent, he is definitely not an Igbo man but if he was, I bet he was born and brought up in Lagos, ‘A typical my mama say I be Igbo’ Jealous, No focus, No culture, No identity, A Betrayer and highly Treacherous like them? The whole world heard the Oba loud and clear in English cursing and threatening the Igbos with death in the Lagoon. The video needs neither translation nor explanation, The contents therein were well understood. In totality, Chukwudi For me, Surely, is a moron, saboteur and a low life. Chikena.

    The so called Chukwudi should not represent any Igbo group, he is a very corrupt man, and can sell his fellow Igbo man for money.

    Chukwudi or whatever you called yourself,listen very well,if the Oba had spoken in Yoruba language,or with a proverb in English,then,I would agree with you that it was all joke,but in this case,he spoke in English to the very clear understanding of any listener,so if you are paid to clean the fuck up by the Oba,please let us know so that we the Igbo’s living in Lagos will pay him back the peanut he paid you,though it is common with most Igbo’s to settle for any amount all in the name of a spoke man,this has been the reason why we the Igbo’s remain the minority of Nigeria.Lord God almighty hear the cry and prayer of the marginalized Igbo people spread all over the world,send us a brave man like Moses to save us from our slave riders,and mostly from the hands of our own betrayal brothers and sisters in our mist,all this we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord and saviour Amen.Finally, Chukwudi,if you are paid or looking for connection for this comment,may our living God judge you for fooling your own people.
