A leader of the Igbo community in Lagos State, Eze Ndigbo Fredrick Nwajagu, who was arraigned before Sabo-Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State, on Wednesday has been remanded for allegedly threatening to bring the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra to the state.
In a report by PMNews, the Chief Magistrate, Peter Nwaka, ordered that the defendant, aged 67, should be kept at the Ikoyi custodial facility for 30 days.
The Igbo leader was charged with conspiracy and breach of public peace.
The source further gathered that the prosecutor, SP Thomas Nurudeen, told the court that Nwajagu and some others at large committed the offences on March 26 at No. 2, Akeem Shitu St., Ajao Estate, Lagos State.
It is believed that Nwajagu’s statement of allegedly threatening to bring IPOB to the state. birthed fear among Lagos residents.
Nwajagu was said to have publicly announced that IPOB would shut down Lagos State for one month.
The alleged offences contravened Sections 168 (d) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
However, the case was adjourned until May 3 for further hearing.
