Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has announced that there were provoking attacks against the Igbo in different parts of Nigeria outside Igboland.

This was made known when Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, President General of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, announced its resolve to safeguard the interests of Igbo people anywhere in the world, noting it was the group’s fundamental directive.

Iwuanyanwu recounts the Igbo as inventive, industrious, and resourceful people, stating that unfortunately, these qualities had brought them jealousy from many people.

Despite this, the Igbo leader affirmed that his people would not relent; instead, they would redouble their efforts to be proficient in whatever they engage in.

Giving account of his supervision since becoming president general of Ohanaeze, he referred to Lagos State as one place where hostilities against the Igbo have become very obvious presently, including during and after the 2023 general election.

Meanwhile, the Igbo leader affirmed that he rose to the issue, and collaborating closely with the South East Governors’ Forum, chaired by Hope Uzodimma, they were able to stem the tide.

“I am happy to report that the Lagos State government has discontinued the demolition of houses, but they are reluctant to pay compensation to the possessors of demolished buildings. After a cautious study of the situation, I have come to the conclusion that the owners of these demolished buildings did not transgress any law. The state government has the right to acquire any land or property for an overriding public interest, but enough compensation must be paid for such a purchase," Iwuanyanwu asserted.

Similarly, he restated Ohanaeze’s dedication to joining forces with other ethnic nationalities on the platform of the Southern and Middle-Belt Leaders’ Forum (SMBLF) to make sure the restructuring of Nigeria was accomplished.
