The Lagos State Government has sealed a property of a former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, in Park View Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The sealing of the house is coming on the heels of the criticism of Fashola by Kalu over the deportation of 72 residents of Lagos, who are of South East origin.
The Igbo men and women were dumped by the Lagos State Government under the bridge in Onitsha, Anambra State, in the wee hours of the day.

Amnesty International has in fact put the number of Lagos State residents deported by the Fashola administration at over 9,000.
Kalu had after the development told Fashola to apologise to the Igbos for the deportation and threatened to sue him if he failed to do so.

Reacting to the sealing of the Park View house of Kalu, his Special Adviser (Media), Emeka Obasi, said it was done as a revenge for the criticism of Kalu, who is the
coordinator of Njiko Igbo, a group fighting the cause of the South East.



Obasi said the property had been there for several years and that sealing it after just two weeks of his boss criticsing Fashola over the deportation issue was an indication that there was more to it.

Obasi said Kalu was not the only Igbo to have suffered such fate in Lagos State "after the wicked and ungodly act of deporting legitimate residents of Lagos State."

He added: "Why is it that it is now that the property is being sealed, barely two weeks after my boss disagreed with the action of Fashola?
"We maintain our stand and this will not distract us from fighting for the people.
"The action of the Lagos State Government remains unconstitutional because every citizen of Nigeria has a right to live in any part of the country.

"Fashola should remember that the Igbo community constitutes about 35 per cent of registered voters in Lagos State and they should be treated like they matter in the scheme of things."

Please no ethnic cleansing.

Sit down and deal with it like civilisef people. After all it is the ordinary people who will suffer when shove comes to push.

However there is one question i would like to ask - is this Fasholas way of seeking re election?

I like that, this is to tell you that you are not a Nigerian, you are a Biafran Man Go and repair your own home land and stop developing another man's land.

You are just a coward / bastard commenting like animal. during Biafran war can you tell me what Yoruba people did? and you forget 30-40% of value properties in Lagos belongs to Igbos.. A Redundant empty brain cell... that's what you are..

Any Igbo man that is still calling himself a Nigerian is a fool and needs to go and ask his mother who his real father is, because his real father must be hausa, fulani or yoruba.

To summarize this (Empty brain cell...)

@paul4daddykalu,I think the guy did not say anything wrong.The truth is bitter,but the truth is the truth.Being a Nigerian is not by force,when they treat the Igbos as second class Nigerians then the Igbos have no option then to face the bitter truth.Now let me educate you on what the Yoruba people did during the war.It was Awolowo(a Yoruba man) that told Gowon that he could not win the war by Military tactics alone,that he can only win the war through Economic Blockade which will cause widespread hunger among the Biafran Military and the Civilian population,of course you know the rest of the stories,hunger and starvation resulting in quashioko which killed more than 2 Million Biafran children and demoralized the Biafran Soldiers....and this singular act led to the surrender of the Biafran Armed Forces.Then after the Civil war,it was also Awolowo that advised Gowon that every Igbo man,no matter how much you had in the bank before the war,should be given only 20 pounds...that is to say,a man that had 100 Million pounds was given only 20 pounds.....with this 20 pound the Igbos started life after the war in Nigeria,with this 20 pounds the Igbos has been able to achieve what they have achieved today.I am have just given you two examples of the atrocities committed by the Yoruba people against the Igbos during the war...they are many others but because of time and space I am giving you only these two.We the Igbos,we can forgive,but we can never forget.
