Joe Igbokwe, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has expressed disappointment that the traditional wedding of Davido and Chioma took place in Lagos rather than Chioma’s hometown in Imo State.

Igbokwe attributed this decision to security concerns posed by groups such as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the Eastern Security Network (ESN), and other armed factions in the South East.

In an Instagram post, Igbokwe lamented that such a significant cultural event did not occur in the South East. He urged people of Igbo descent to reflect on the implications of this development and to work towards restoring peace in their homeland.

He wrote: “Despite the beauty and vibrancy of Davido and Chioma’s wedding, it saddens me deeply that the event did not take place in the South East. Thank you IPOB, ESN, and known gunmen. It’s time to reflect deeply on what today’s events in Lagos mean for anyone with Igbo heritage. Even a prominent Adeleke family from Osun State could not venture to the South East for Davido and Chioma’s traditional marriage.”

Igbokwe’s comments highlight the ongoing security challenges in the South East and their impact on cultural and social events in the region.
