The Governor of Lagos State Babajide Sanwo-Olu has abolished all Eze Nd’Igbo titles henceforth in the state.
The Governor warned all Local Government Chairmen to be at alert to ensure full compliance with immediate effect.
The directive was contained in a statement released by Lagos State Commissioner Of Information Gbenga Omotoso on Saturday.
This is coming after an Igbo traditional ruler “Eze Ndigbo” in Lagos was arrested by the department of state services DSS after he was accused of threatening to invite the indigenous people of Biafra IPOB to protect the properties Igbos in Lagos.
With this development, no Igbo group or union living in Lagos can coronate or confer such title recognition on any of their subjects.
