Yul Edochie, has shared his views on the ongoing debate about the ownership of Lagos. According to the movie star, Lagos is a Yoruba land and not a no man's land, as many have been led to believe.

Yul Edochie, who has been living in Lagos since 2011 and has built a home there, took to his Instagram page to express his opinion. He revealed that he has never experienced any form of discrimination or prejudice from the Yoruba people in Lagos, and anytime Yoruba boys see him on the street, they gather to greet him with love.

The actor cautioned against the notion that Lagos is a no man's land and likened it to making such a claim about Anambra state, which he said is an Igbo land. He warned against tribalism and emphasized the need for people to avoid making statements that could cause harm to society.

In his words, "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 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."
