April 7, 2015 – Oba Akiolu Death Threat: Igbos Living In Lagos Blasts Pat Utomi For Defending Him

Ndigbos have blasted Prof. Pat Utomi for attempting to defend Oba Rilwan Akiolu after he was accused of threatening Igbos in Lagos if they fail to vote Akinwunmi Ambode of the All Progressives Congress in April 11 elections.

Utomi tried to play down claims that the Oba said Igbos will perish in the lagoon by writing on Twitter. “The arena of politics slippery slope. The remarks by the Oba of Lagos are inappropriate but all who know him know he talks so in jest,” he wrote on his Twitter account.

“Have known Oba Akiolu for 20 years. He says worse to me every time we see but I have no doubt he is fond of me. How do you tell outsiders so,” he quizzed.

Utomi said Oba Akiolu jokes a lot and that the statement to the Igbos could be one of his jokes. “Typical of Oba as he sees me: Pat go return our land where you built that Lagos Business School. I respond; hold Asiwaju who signed Certificate of Occupancy,” he said.

But Utomi’s attempt to douse the tension did not go well with some Nigerians. Many of them replied him on Twitter. Below are a few.

On certain political issues, the wise words spring to mind “in thine own lane, remain”. Pat Utomi didn’t have to comment. – Gege

I am disappointed Pat Utomi is defending the Oba’s statement. – Nwike
Pat Utomi is doing a better job than the Palace at clarifying the Oba’s statements… which in itself is making things worse. – Amara Nwa

Another Twitter user named Aunty Abigail raised a question on the Twitter handle baring Pat Utomi’s name.

Is that really Pat Utomi’s handle? – Abigail asked

Pat Utomi, an Igbo man can’t support the death threat statement made by Oba Akiolu.

It is likely the handiwork of an impostor.

    Take it or leave it, any change in governance of Lagos State that may be ochestrated by Igbo voting pattern in Lagos State will set off a delicate and an uneasy co-existence with their hosts indeginous Lagosians. Yorubas or Hausas cannot migrate like the Igbos do; remeniscent of the Sahellian normads to Igboland, to influence the voting pattern as the Igbos attempt to do in other people’s territories. The core Hausa north will take no kindly to this nonsense on their territory as such will “take the bull by the horn” as they always do. Why blame the Hausas when they confront the fight head-on under this kind of situations. The Oba of Lagos, Akiolu must be supported in his warning to the Igbo guests of Lagos State.

    Igbos in Lagos are very ungrateful, But Igbos in Lagos voted for Jonathan and he lost in Lagos and at the Federal level, What is the big deal there ? Why is Oba Akiolu asking for votes from Ndigbo ? I see no reason why he should be asking them to vote for Ambode / APC. Agbaje can’t win Ambode, PDP can’t defeat APC in Lagos, PDP can’t rule Lagos. How many Yorubas do will have the East ? They are few, So, Why are igbos in Lagos ranting, They need to becareful ? Anyway, Till 11th April,2015

    What exactly is the problem of the Igbos living in Lagos?what the Oba said was just a passing comment. He never said he was going to kill any Igbo. What he said was that ; If the Igbos don’t vote in a certain way they will perish in water-this is just a figurative speech ok!
    If there are any Igbos living in Lagos, that does not like what the Oba and Pat Utomi, have said -they should relocate to their very civilised villages in the South East-since they are claiming they are the ones that opened the eyes of the Yoruba people.
    The Yorubas are now saying ;thank u very much to U ,but begin to go back to ur beautiful states in the East.
    Also what the Igbos are trying to do in this election is very diabolical ;they just want to cause division amongst the Yorubas,bcos we all know that they hardly know the Agbaje of PDP ,that they all want to vote for,they are only voting PDP to spite Fashola and the APC-which they are thinking would affect Ambode.
    They are only harbouring hatred for Fashola, and the APC-bcos fashola once tried to deport the homeless Igbo hoodlums back to their states.

    Pat Utomi’s disgraceful defense of Oba Akiolu is unimaginable. Utomi should have kept silent instead of this, his disgraceful and hurtful defense of Oba Akiolu hate speech. I wonder the essence of being educated as regards to Utomi, This is not smartness for me, it’s a no brainer. Pat is not only stupid but foolish.

    I’m not surprised at all ppl this is the revaluation the most high preached abt many years ago, the British are blaming the eu for all sorts and are wanting to break of Frm eu, American on the other hand are doing same stuff, What more is there to fight abt??????? Whts more important is it to fight for the righteous of God or mankind? A time will come when everyone I mean every human on the surface of this earth will ask God to plz reunite one another for the sake of peace, and I guess It might be too late if them lots don’t stop this foolishness of colour,religion & tribalism. Remember the rich also cry and the high and mighty also bend down low!
