Lagos PPRO Speaks On Alleged Attack On Igbo's In Lagos, Kicks Against Tribal Bigotry

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer SP Benjamin Hundeyin has taken to Twitter and urged people not to fall for bigotry, as he reveals the truth about an alleged attack on Igbo Traders in Lagos.

A man had posted that Igbo were being attacked by APC thugs on a rampage on the streets of Lagos because of post-election violence. They were allegedly chasing, robbing, and destroying properties that belongs to them.

According to SP Benjamin Hundeyin, he investigated the complaint that Igbo people were being attacked and robbed, and found out that it was Igbo traders that were specifically being chased away by some hoodlums over their insistence to open their shop today, despite an agreement that shops would not open yesterday and today.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin noted that the Lagos State Police would not condone an attack targeted at people, as patrol teams have been swiftly deployed to the affected areas. He noted that the swift response of the police prevented people from being attacked or robbed as alleged, normalcy was restored and officers remained on the ground.

He urged people not to see things through the lens of tribalism, but that of facts and figures, as we're all Nigerians. See his post below.
