Latest entertainment gist

Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has faulted those saying Lagos is a no man’s land.

The actor and Director, of Igbo origin, said this on Saturday in a post on his Instagram page on the raging debate.

Edochie, son of renowned Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, spoke in a post titled: “Let’s kill tribalism before it kills us.”

He wrote: “I’ve lived in Lagos State 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 someone’s land and tell the person it’s now a no man’s 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.”
