The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Lagos has debunked reports that the Igbo were under attack in the state.
Meanwhile, the Labour Party, LP, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in the state following alleged attacks on some residents of the state from the South-East who were attempting to register for their Permanent Voter Cards, PVC, by people believed to be political thugs.
Recall that there was an uproar on Thursday over reports of hoodlums attacking Igbo traders who shut their shops to register for PVC.
Viral videos showed that while the registration exercise was ongoing, thugs armed with machetes, sticks and clubs stormed the venue and disrupt the process and also made moves to cart away INEC machines but were overpowered by the traders.
The President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Lagos, Chief Solomon Aguene, described the reports as untrue.
He asserted that contrary to the claims on social media, the Igbo have no threat to their peace in Lagos.
