Lagos Security Council debunks alleged ‘deportation’ of Igbos

The Lagos Security Council has debunked deportation of Igbos to Anambra State, saying the affected people indicated interest to be resettled in their home town.

Briefing newsmen after the State Security Council meeting at the State House, Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko said there was nothing like deportation of Igbos.

“What happened was that the state did rehabilitation and resettlement of the citizens from other states who came into the state and turned into destitute. After, the state government revived and reformed them. After that, they indicated their interest of going back to their home town to be resettled. That was what happened. There wasn’t any deportation,” he explained.

Also, Manko reassured residents of Lagos of adequate security as security operatives were on top of their jobs, urging Lagosians to go about their lawful businesses as their security was guaranteed.


"...the affected people indicated interest to be resettled in their home town"? Lagos State Govt is expected to notify to notify Anambra State Govt prior to 'dumping' the affected IMO.


  1. Deporting Nigerians in Nigeria and dumping them in middle of no where at the middle of the night, that is man inhumanity against man, and in a democratic environment or state

  2. Fashola is a tribalist to the core. He hate the Igbos with passion, forgetting that 30% of Igbo votes put him there. He always witch hunt ladipo market and alaba
