The People Democratic Party’s Femi Fani-Kayode has criticized the Oba of Lagos for his threat against the Igbos living in the state.
The Oba had warned the Igbo leaders to vote Ambode or else be thrown into the lagoon.
“The truth is that we were threatened with ethnic cleansing and religious carnage in the North had Buhari not won the presidential election on March 28 and had President Jonathan not quickly conceded defeat. We let that go and kept the peace, but now, our traditional supporters are being threatened in Lagos and in many other states as we approach the April 11 governorship elections.
“Let two things be clearly understood. In as much as we all want peace in this country and as Jonathan has graciously and quickly conceded defeat in the presidential election, this does not mean that we are weak or powerless.
“Let it be clearly understood by all and sundry that any attempt to kill, maim or molest our supporters in the North, in the West or indeed in any other part of the country either before, during or after Saturday’s governorship elections or any attempt at ethnic or religious cleansing by the APC, their supporters or their friends and agents, would be deemed unacceptable and would be met with defiance, contempt and a well-orchestrated and solid resistance.”
