Lagos belongs to Yoruba, not no man’s land – Yul Edochie

The popular Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has said condemned the manner some people described Lagos as a no man’s land.

He said Lagos is a Yoruba land and that they have been welcoming to other tribes.

He made this revelation on Saturday, March 4, 2023 through his Instagram handle.

He said even though the Igbos have contributed to the development of the state, the land belongs to the Yoruba people.

“I’ve lived in Lagos since 2011. Built my house in Lagos.

“Not once have I experienced any form of hate or rejection from the Yorubas.

“Anytime Yoruba boys see me on the street, they gather to greet me, and it’s all love always. And this talk flying around that Lagos is a no man’s land is wrong.

“Lagos is a Yoruba state in Yoruba land. Imagine someone saying that Anambra is a no man land, That’s crap. Anambra is an Igbo land. You can’t come into someones land and tell the person its now a no man land na you dey find trouble.

“Nobody can deny the fact that the Igbos have contributed immensely to the development of Lagos. Other tribes have contributed in their own ways too. And the Yoruba’s have been largely accommodating as well. It shouldn’t take away the fact that Lagos is a Yoruba land. We no dey drag ownership. Let’s kill tribalism before it kills us,” he wrote.
