In Lagos today, people were attacked and it looked like the attack was focused on Igbo people (who allegedly refused to vote APC). But this had been tagged as a confusion as many people are coming out to say say the situation should not be classified as an ethnic or tribal one and that it was purely political.
Check tweets regarding the situation.
The Igbos are ingrates????
As per you bought food for them and paid their rents and they didn't say "thank you"???
Y'all block and report this ethnic bigot, this goes beyond elections. pic.twitter.com/Ogk4t5m3LB

thugs are attacking people not voting for APC in aguda. they are inspecting the papers before you dump in.
igbo people are being sent back because it’s assumed that they won’t be voting for apc.
security personnel are nowhere to be found. #NigeriaDecides2019

Yorubas are not attacking Igbos. If reports are true, thugs in Lagos are targeting PDP areas – which is home to many Igbos, but not Igbos in APC areas.
Yorubas also reside in target places and are facing the same issues as Igbos. We must know the enemy if we truly want to win. https://t.co/j5URTS1qjt
