Aka Ikenga threatens to take Lagos monarch to ICC

Aka Ikenga, an Igbo think-tank, has threatened to take the Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, to the International Criminal Court, ICC, over his alleged threat to Igbo living in Lagos, if they failed to vote for his preferred candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode, in Saturday’s governorship election.

Aka Ikenga President, Chief Goddy Uwazurike, described the threat as one against humanity, noting that freedom of choice was an inherent right nobody could take away from Ndigbo.

He said: “We have waited for a retraction in vain, but we have stated it repeatedly that people should vote according to their conscience without any fear or favour. Freedom of choice is an inherent right and nobody can take it away from Ndigbo.

“For the avoidance of doubt, threat to one Igbo man is a threat to us all. We shall do our civic duty as directed by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and the security agencies we have copied this release.

“It is a known fact that we seek free and fair elections. Where were Yoruba and Hausa/Fulani threatened for their votes?”
