Iyalagha dismisses communal war rumour

The law firm said: “Iyalagha is a bonafide and law-abiding son of Odimodi Community with high respect for other neighboring communities (Ogulagha Community inclusive) hence, cannot take steps or any action that is capable of threatening the peace and tranquility of any of these neighboring communities. Moreso, our client still holds and respects the sanctity of both Odimodi and Ogulagha communities and has not and will not engage in or encourage anything that would breach peace.”
