Following the ethnic profiling and violence that characterised the just general elections, some South East leaders under the auspice of Anya Ndigbo, yesterday, declared that Igbo people are not at war with Yoruba people in Lagos just as they expressed worry that Igbo people now live in fear in the state.

This came as former Deputy National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olabode George condemned the ethnic profiling against Igbo people saying it negates the culture of Lagos people.
Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Anya Ndigbo, Dr Uma Eleazu spoke when he led a delegation of Anya Ndigbo met with George at his Lugard office in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Other members of the group present at the meeting include Mr Emeka Ugwu-Oju Mr Ben Akah, President of the South East Town Unions in Lagos, Chief Amaechi Ebeledike; Segun Adebanjo, Elvira Salleras and Mr Ikechukwu Amaechi.

In his remarks, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Anya Ndigbo, Dr Uma Eleazu said Igbo people are worried over events that characterised the general elections adding that fake news was generated to target Igbo people.

He, however, faulted the peddling of news that the Igbo people want to take over Lagos.
Lamenting that Igbo now live in fear in the state, Eleazu said: “Some faceless people are going round fomenting trouble for Igbo people.”

His words: “There is a development we noticed in the last election, it turned out to be a do-or-die affair. If you do a content analysis of the just concluded elections, the words that were used were worrisome. These are words that create fear in the minds of people. In the last election, it went beyond that. In an attempt to dissuade people from voting, we saw one ethnic nationality brought out to be antagonized and given names.
