Video: ‘This is embarrassing’ – Igbo community cultural event at Westin Hotel in Irvine, Texas, gets shut down for noise and overcrowding

By Rachel Okporu Fadoju

There was a commotion among the Igbo community in the United States of America after their cultural event was abruptly shut down.

Naija News reports that in a video obtained by LIB, one of the attendees claimed the organizers of the event being held by the Mbaise community paid a huge sum of over $92,000 for the hall.

However, the Texas hotel management invited the police after the event started at Westin Hotel in Irvine, Texas, to shut them down.

The source who also spoke to LIB said, “This is an embarrassing situation for the people of Mbaise and Nigeria as a whole. The manager of Westin Hotel Irvine Texas just shut down an Mbaise convention while the event is on going.. We stand with Ndi Igbo home and abroad… let’s build our country… We can do it. Stop being humiliated and rejected home and abroad”

Release Nnamdi Kanu – Rita Edochie Tells Tinubu
