May 11, 2015 – Oba Rilwanu Akiolu Demands Respect From Igbos Living In Lagos, Says Lagosians Are The Most Accommodating In Nigeria

The popular royal Eko royal father, Oba Rilwan Akiolu has once again revisited the viral comments he made about the Ndigbo people living in Lagos few weeks ago.

While responding to the alleged threat he made to the Igbos, the controversial monarch said non-indegenes in Lagos must learn to pay due respect to their host adding that he had no ill feelings towards the Igbo people.

In his own words;

“Eze Odimegwu, who is a former CEO of Nigerian Breweries, is still my best friend as well as many others. The Obi of Onitsha came to visit me here a few days ago. When you go to a place, you have to respect the host leaders, particularly the traditional leaders there because you are coming to benefit from their success. The people of Lagos are the friendliest and most accommodating people in Nigeria.

    this man should leave igbo people alone. he should learn to be respectful for him to be respected.he is not the first oba in lagos,and will not be the last. where was he when sir louis odumegwu ojukwu established NSE in lagos and became its first president.igbos were elected into political positions in lagos long b4 his reign.he shld stop fanning ambers of hate.

    What his HRH, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu, has asked for from the visitors to Lagos especially the Igbo community is NOT too much at all. What the Oba is simply saying is that when you are a visitor(guest) in a place behave like a visitor(guest) and respect your host’s generosity, and you don’t take your host ‘s kindness as a sign of weakness or stupidity.
    The Oba has every right to talk about his subject which includes everyone residing in Lagos state; remember he is the paramount ruler of Lagos state.So if some settlers in Lagos state, cannot handle the truth that the Oba has said and asked for –they should please relocate to either Abuja, or better still their home states in Anambra,Enugu or any of the states from the South Eastern part of Nigeria.
    Enough is enough; if you CANNOT handle the heat then get out of the Kitchen”!biko!!!!Go Back to your States!!!!.
    Lagos is NOT a no man’s land like the very naive erroneously purported claim of some very uneducated and ignorant NOISY individuals, who want to forcefully take the land of their host…they know themselves ..Needless for me to mention their tribe. Please I repeat “Lagos is NOT and will never be a NO man’s Land”.

      Lagosian, u may just get ur wish. Remember, yorubas are in the east in droves. Ur pathetic self and ur xenophobic oba shld stop this campaign of hate against igbos. Lagos and indeed any part of nigeria shld be a residing place for any nigerian. U don, t need to give anybody any special respect. Just obey the law of the land and live in peace with others

    Lagosian, nobody is struggling for lagos with u. Remember, the law allows people to stay where they wish in this country without harrasment or intimidation. Where u find urself, u contribute to that society positively and u know igbos has been and keep contributing majorly to lagos dev. Be careful with u wish. U may just get it . Remember yorubas are everywhere in the east. The oba is talking as if he had not stayed in any other part of nigeria. He was policeman, u remember. I pity people like u. During the june 12 crises, people travelled out of lagos enmass, and it became a shadow of itself. There were pleas for people to come back. There are civil servants who are posted to lagos who are of igbo origin. As am talking to u, there are oil coy workers and civil servants of yoruba origin who are workingin the east. Be careful lagosin , u may just get ur wish.
