The Eze Igbo of Ajao Estate, Lagos, Fredrick Nwajagu, has been arrested. According to reports, he was arrested in a midnight raid by operatives of the Nigeria Police and Department of State Security (DSS).
Nwajagu was apprehended by the police recently at a hotel where he was hiding in Ejigbo.
Nwajagu had threatened to invite members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to secure the properties as well as businesses of Igbo people in the Lagos State in a recent viral video.
This was in connection to the cases of ethnic attacks allegedly unleashed on Igbo residents in Lagos after the 2023 general elections.
He said: “IPOB, we will invite them. They have no job. All of the IPOB will protect all of our shops. And we have to pay them. We have to mobilise for that. We have to do that. We must have our security so that they will stop attacking us at midnight, in the morning, and in the afternoon.
“When they discover that we have our security before they will come, they will take caution. I am not saying a single word to be hidden. I am not hiding my words, let my words go viral. Igbo must get their right and get a stand in Lagos State”.
A police source disclosed that the joint teams of the police and DSS tracked Nwajagu to a hotel in Ejigbo and arrested him at 1:00am on Saturday.
