The Special Adviser to the Lagos State Government on Environmental Cleansing and Protection, Mr Joe Igbokwe was at the early hours of Monday attacked by some group of youths identified as Igbos who live in Lagos.
According to an eye witnesses, Mr Igbokwe narrowly escaped the attack with his driver on his way to work, along Surulere axis of the State, when some group of men trooped out in their numbers and descended on his vehicle, trying so hard to bring him and the driver out of the car, but luck was on his side when the driver managed to zoom off without minding the traffic signals.
However, it was also gathered that the group of young men who were speaking Igbo went after Mr Igbokwe but couldn’t get him as the driver geared up the vehicle speed.
Meanwhile, the Police arrived at the scene to calm the situation down but the youths were unable to listen to them as they were busy chanting chorus of war in Igbo dialect “We will catch Joe Igbokwe, either here in Lagos or in Igboland. We have declared him wanted. Enough is enough. We have had enough of his nonsense.” They chorused.
However, it should be recalled that Honourable Joe Igbokwe has been against the Biafra Movement right from the time of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu till date and has been championing lots of media war against the Igbo tribe.
