BIAFRA: Even If Nigeria Is Restructured, All we want Is 'Biafra' - IPOB

The Supreme Council of Elders of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has warned those using the word ‘landlocked’ to describe Biafra nation to desist from it, as the word is nothing but a very insulting word.

Deputy Chairman of the council and former President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr Dozie Ikedife, made this known in an interview with newsmen in Nnewi, Anambra State.

According to him, members of the Elders’ Council  were “tired of staying in bondage” in a country called Nigeria.

He said: “We do not believe in monolithic opinion. Those who believe that we won’t survive as a nation because we are landlocked are wrong. About 30 northern countries all over the world are landlocked but doing fine.

“Taiwan is a nation of about seven million people. Some other countries are smaller than either Ebonyi State, Enugu or Imo States. We are also compatible. So, why are they insulting us by saying that we cannot survive?”

Meanwhile, Ikedife further said the Supreme Council of Elders of IPOB which had another former President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and retired Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Eze Ozobu as chairman with Joe Achuzia as secretary believed in “dialogue and consultation without using hot words, let alone insulting language.”
