The other half of the well-known music group P-Square, Peter, has bemoaned the tribal conflict developing in Lagos State due to the recent elections. The musician wants the populace to realize that they are being manipulated by politicians who don’t care about them but are determined to sow division among the various tribes that coexist in Lagos. Following the Akere Spare Parts Market fire in Olodi-Apapa, Ajegunle, Lagos on Wednesday, Peter Okoye, better known by his stage name Mr. P, decided to speak.
Unknown individuals allegedly set fire to the Igbo-dominated market, destroying property worth millions of Naira for political motives. And in a tweet on Wednesday, Mr. P made it plain that the Igbo and Yoruba, the two largest tribes in Lagos State, do not hate one another. However, he said that Nigerians must understand that politicians do not desire what is best for people regardless of the tribe to which they belong.
According to the artist, there should not be any hostility between Yorubas and Igbos. He primarily addressed this issue. He mentioned his union with Omolola as evidence for this assertion. He asserted that politicians utilize ethnic disputes as a pretext for their dubious behavior. He urged the people to use wisdom and avoid being used to fan ethnic enmities.
Akere spare parts was set ablaze in the early hours of today while the Igbo traders that owned the shops were still sleeping in their homes. My brother got the news at around 3am, by the time he got there , everything was already gone. His thirty years of hustle just vanished😭 pic.twitter.com/HSpCRbnV1r
