“Ohanaeze will strive to bridge the gap between the Indigenous People of Biafra and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) because we are not prepared to lose any life.

“Biafra is for equity, justice and fairness. The struggle for the realisation of Biafran objective, this time around, is a matter of the brain and not violence.”

He said the organisation would, “among other things, reach out to law enforcement agencies and minimise conflicts between them and the people, especially with regards to extortion at checkpoints.’

“We also intend to empanel a legal team of volunteers to take care of injustices against any Igbo man and will also assemble medical experts to take care of emergency situations.”
