Lagos Red line - lagospost.ng

Lagos government has debunked a viral post claiming that some communities in Lagos State will hold “oro traditional rites” on Thursday and Friday.

According to the publication making rounds on social media, some communities in the state will hold the ritual on Thursday and Friday between 12 am and 5:30am on both nights.

The affected communities and towns as mentioned in the video include Ikate and its environs, Ijora-Badiya and its environs, Amuwo Odofin and its environs, Ojota and its environs, Ikorodu and its environs, and Somolu-Bariga and its environs.

Others are Igbobi-Sabe land, Ojodu-Isheri and its environs, Isolo-Okota-Ilasamaja and its environs, Ejigbo-Idimu and its environs, Isheri-Ijegun and its environs, Ikotun-Igando and its environs, and Iba land and its environs.

Mushin-Odi Olowo and its environs, Lawanson-Itire and its environs, and Sangotedo and its environs were also listed.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Lagos State Governor, Gboyega Akosile, who spoke on Thursday in Alausa, Ikeja, said Lagosians should disregard the publication which stated “all females and non-indigenes are advised to keep off and stay indoors” as “owners of the land want to do rituals.”

“This is not even what the government should be reacting to. It doesn’t make sense. What is the meaning of ‘owners of the land want to do rituals’? People should please disregard it,” Akosile said.
