    I lived and built my house in Lagos” Yul Edochie calls for unity amongst Nigerians

    Published By:

    Popular Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has warned against tribalism as he called for unity amongst Nigerians.

    Yul was reacting to a statement made by Labour Party gubernatorial candidate in Lagos state, Gbadebo Rohdes Vivour (GRV).

    Reports claimed the LP candidate statement is tribalistic and offensive to the Yorubas.

    GRV said, “Lagos is no man’s land”.

    Reacting to the dragging, the veteran actor called for unity amongst Nigerians as he recounted his experience living in Lagos.

    “Yul Edochie wrote, 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’s land. That’s crap. Anambra is an Igbo land.
    You can’t come into someone’s land and tell that 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 Yorubas 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.

    YUL EDOCHIE,” he said.
