In response to the incident, Emenike took to his Instagram page to express concern that Igbo people are in “trouble” in Lagos and urged them to relocate their investments to the South East.
“The sadness is too much after getting approval from the same Lagos State Government. This is pure wickedness.
“Igbos are in trouble.
“Bring your investment back home my people. We have Abia State, Imo State, Anambra State, Enugu State and Ebonyi State.”
