The lawmaker representing Bayelsa East in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Senator Ben Murray Bruce has reacted to the call by some Yorubas in Lagos for the Igbo to leave the State.
Following the recently-concluded presidential polls, crisis soon ensued in Lagos as some Yorubas demanded that Igbo traders vacate the state for voting against their preferred candidate.
National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has also been accused of having a hand in the segregation against Ndigbo.
In a reaction on Monday, Bruce urged Nigerians to separate the behaviour of a few people from that of the entire Yoruba.
He tweeted, “I urge Nigerians to separate the behaviour of a few people from the behaviour of the Yoruba. Look at the results of the Presidential elections.
- “The Yoruba voted almost 50% for an Igbo VP. The Yoruba don’t hate the Igbos or anybody. No ethnicity is as accommodating as the Yoruba.”
