Igbo traders from Alaba International Market were attacked by thugs who allegedly stopped from getting their PVCs at Ojo local government area of Lagos State.
Igbos Attacked In Lagos
It was gathered that the traders had announced that they will be shutting down their shops on Thursday to get their PVCs ahead of the 2023 general election.
However, when they went to the iNEC office in Ojo, the officials refused to register them because of their tribe, while some of the traders were attacked by thugs.
Video circulating on social media indicates that the incident also happened at the INEC center in amuwo odofin local government area, mostly occupied by Igbos
Watch the videos and see some Twitter reactions below:

Mc Oluomo and his boys have started what they did to Igbos in 2019 on election day. This time, they are not even letting Igbos register for their PVCs. Why is there so much hate for the Igbo people in Nigeria? Gosh!! #VotePeterObiForPresident2023 #PeterObi2023 #PeterObi4President pic.twitter.com/IHQLxFPE0z

So Igbo traders closed Alaba market to register for PVC in Ojo Lagos, but thugs were sent to attack them. Igbos don’t vote, but you won’t allow them to register. When they cry now, y’all will say, “Igbos & their victim mentality.” Bcos, it works all the freaking time. Naija..🤣🤣

Reports of thugs disrupting Igbo voters is downright evil and clear for all to see! What are they afraid of? I’ve always been about oneness but it’s looking like agenda wants to convert a mf! Everyone of age has a fundamental right to get their PVC! Shame!

Touts in Ojo Alaba, Lagos are frustrating Alaba traders who are mostly Igbos from getting their PVCs.

Nigerians are suffering!! Igbo, Hausa or Yoruba. Christian or Muslim. We are all going through hardship. So why do we keep using tribalism to fight ourselves instead of joining hands together to fight the cause of this suffering and work towards a better society??
