Popular Nollywood actor/director, Yul Edochie has warned that the assertion that Lagos state is no man’s land is totally false because it belongs to the Yorubas.

In a post on his Instagram page, he revealed that he had moved to Lagos in 2011, built a home there and has never been treated badly or been prejudiced against by the Yorubas.

‘I’ve lived in Lagos since 2011. Built my house in Lagos.

“Not once have I experienced any form of hate or rejection from the Yorubas.

“Anytime Yoruba boys see me on the street, they gather to greet me, and it’s all love always. And this talk flying around that Lagos is a no man’s land is wrong.

“Lagos is a Yoruba state in Yoruba land. Imagine someone saying that Anambra is a no man’s land, That’s crap. Anambra is an Igbo land. You can’t come into someone’s land and tell the person its now a no man land na you dey find trouble.

“Nobody can deny the fact that the Igbos have contributed immensely to the development of Lagos. Other tribes have contributed in their own ways too. And the Yoruba’s have been largely accommodating as well. It shouldn’t take away the fact that Lagos is a Yoruba land. We no dey drag ownership. Let’s kill tribalism before it kills us,” he wrote.
