Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has dismissed claims that Lagos is a no man’s land, stressing that the state is in Yoruba territory.
The actor, who disclosed this on his Instagram page while speaking against tribalism, revealed he has been living in Lagos since 2011, where he owns a house, and he had never been treated badly or been prejudiced against by Yoruba people.
Edochie said Lagos a ‘’Yoruba’ state that is in Yoruba land” just like Anambra state which belongs to Igbo people who he admitted have contributed immensely to the development of Lagos.
He said, “Lagos is a Yoruba state in Yoruba land. Imagine someone saying that Anambra is a no man land, That’s crap. Anambra is an Igbo land. You can’t come into someones land and tell the person its now a no man land na you dey find trouble.
“Nobody can deny the fact that the Igbos have contributed immensely to the development of Lagos. Other tribes have contributed in their own ways too. And the Yoruba’s have been largely accommodating as well. It shouldn’t take away the fact that Lagos is a Yoruba land. We no dey drag ownership. Let’s kill tribalism before it kills us.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Lagos State chapter of Ohanaeze Ndigbo had recently endorsed the re-election of the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
