A member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon Segun Olulade has said the state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode will deal decisively with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu if he tries to hold a rally in the State.
Olulade made the disclosure while reacting to Kanu’s recent declaration that he would soon visit Lagos State as part of his sensitization and mobilization of Igbos towards the actualization of Biafra.
The lawmaker, who represents Epe constituency II in the State Assembly warned Kanu to steer clear of the state.
The Chairman of the House Committee on Health Services stressed that Ambode and people of the state would not fold their hands and allow anyone disturb the peace that is enjoyed by residents in the state.
Speaking with The Independent, the Chairman of the House Committee on Health Services said: “I think as a state, we will be ready to curtail any act of insecurity in Lagos state. We will not fold our hands and allow anybody to cause crisis and breakdown of law and order in the state.
“Governor Akinwunmi Ambode will deal decisively with anyone threatening to shut down the state. If any fellow is threatening to shut down our state, he should go back to where he is coming from. He is not welcome in Lagos state. Lagosians will resist it.
“The government of Lagos will resist it and we will ensure that nobody truncates the peace we enjoy in Lagos. I see his threat to hold a rally and shut down Lagos state as an empty threat. Lagos is not like any other state.”
