Lagos Belongs To Yoruba’s Not No Man’s Land – Yul Edochie

Popular Nollywood Actor, Yul Edochie has challenged  those who keep saying ”Lagos is a no man’s land’.


Yul has emphasised the fact that Lagos belongs to the Yorubas.

He advised people to kill tribalism, hailing the Westerners for being such accommodating people as he shared his experience being a non-Yoruba resident in the state.

The Actor wrote: “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 that person it’s now a no man’s 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 Yorubas 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.”
