According to reports, there are indications that state governors in South East region of the country, are planning to rebuild the palace of the father of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Following this, no fewer than five pro Biafra groups yesterday commended Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State for his assurance that the South East governors would rebuild the palace of the monarch which was damaged by the Nigerian Army during an attack on the fugitive IPOB leader some months ago.
In a statement issued in Abakaliki and signed by Comrade Emeka Ibekwe for Biafra Independence Organization; Comrade Philip Umenna for Igbo Revolutionary Movement; Comrade Sunday James Achu for Eastern Peoples Renewal; Rev Kingsley Olisa for Biafra Clergy Network; and Comrade Victor Akpanaka for Biafra Security Network, the groups further appealed for close relationship among Ndigbo and other ethnic nationalities in Igbo land.
They said: “The leadership of five pro Biafra groups met yesterday and resolved to work and promote a conscious brotherhood and synergy among all pro Biafra agitators.” The groups commended the Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu for his assurance that the southeast governors will rebuild the palace of the father of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which was damaged by the Nigerian Army.
They also appealed for close relationship among Ndigbo and other ethnic nationalities in Biafra land. “We agreed to work together as one family in unison with other pro Biafra groups that could not attend our meeting. “Pro-Biafra groups should intensify efforts in grassroot sensitisation and mobilisations for greater home awareness of Biafra referendum that will determine the acceptability of Biafra by the people of Biafra.
“Pro-Biafra groups should explore every necessary means, including political, economical and religious means for effective actualisation and restoration of sovereign state of Biafra.
We shall be involved in the political determinations of governance of our region. We shall be stakeholders in electing, deciding and establishing a Biafra- oriented political force that will not be a stooge in national assembly and state governments.”
