DSS arrests Igbo leader who threatened to invite IPOB into Lagos

THE Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested Fredrick Nwajagu, the Igbo leader who threatened to invite members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to Lagos to protect the Igbos.

Nwajagu, the Eze Igbo of Ajao Estate, Lagos, was arrested on Saturday in a joint operation by the DSS and the police.



    The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Superintendent Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed this.

    The operatives traced Nwajagu to his palace, but he fled. He was later tracked to a hotel in Ejigbo and apprehended.

    Nwajagu had, in a 49-second video shared on Twitter on Friday by @DeeOneAyekooto, vowed to invite members of IPOB to Lagos to secure the properties of the Igbo people in the state.

    But Benjamin Hundeyin replied him, saying, “To start with, the ever-ready @LagosPoliceNG will never fold its arms and allow such within the state.”
