This is as despicable, and shameful as we’ve seen in these election period.
The Oba of Lagos, Oba Akiolu can be heard in this audio recording issuing a death threat to the igbos in Lagos should they fail to vote for gubernatorial candidate for APC, Akinwunmi Ambode, this coming Saturday.
The recording was taped during a meeting with some Igbo leaders in Lagos.
An excerpt of the speech
“I am not ready to beg you. Nobody knew how I picked Ambode. Jimi is my blood relation and I told him that he can never be governor in Lagos for now. The future belongs to God. I am not begging anybody, but what you people cannot do in Onitsha, Aba or anywhere you can not do it here. If you do what I want, Lagos will continue to be prosperous for you, if you go against my wish, you will perish in the water.”
What’s worse than his comments and threats? It’s those clapping in the background.
