Meanwhile, Yul Edochie has stated that it’s wrong to describe Lagos as no man’s land because the Yoruba people have been accommodating.
In a post on Instagram, the actor stated that although people of Igbo descent have largely contributed to the growth of Lagos State, it does not change the fact that Lagos is a Yoruba land.
He disclosed that he has lived in Lagos since 2001, built his house there and has not experienced any form of rejection or hate from the Lagosians.
