Eze Ndigbo Arraigns For Terrorism By Lagos Government

Frederick  Nwajago, the Eze Ndigbo of  Ajao Estate in Lagos has been arraigned by the Lagos State Government for alleged terrorism.

He was brought before the high court in the Tafawa Balewa Square by the Lagos State Government, where he faced nine charges. These included allegations of attempted terrorism, participation in terrorism, supporting a banned group, attempting to fund a terrorist act, and preparing to commit a terrorist act, all of which were filed against him by the state authorities.

Recall that the Eze Ndigbo was arrested on the 1st of April, 2023, after he released a 49-second viral video, in which he threatened to invite members of the  Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to Lagos to secure the lives and properties of Igbo people living in the State.

The video captures Nwajago saying, “We will invite IPOB. They have no jobs. All IPOB members will protect our shops, and we have to pay them. We need to mobilize and have our security to prevent attacks on us day and night. When they realize we have our security, they will know we have our people there. I’m not hiding my words. Igbo people must get their rights and have a standing in Lagos State.”

In response to his statements, the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, has stated that the command will not allow IPOB to operate in the state and will take measures to resist their presence.
