OHANEZE Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio –cultural organization, has
dissociated itself from the activities of the Biafra agitators, who had
been protesting in many cities in the South East and South –South,
saying that Biafra died in 1970 with the surrender by General Philip
Effiong, to the Nigerian troops.
Addressing reporters in Awka Friday, the chairman, Forum of State
Presidents of Ohaneze in the seven Igbo –speaking states, Dr. Chris
Eluomunoh said that no right thinking person would support what he
called the madness by some youths, who were being deceived to engage in
something they cannot finish.
He said: “You will notice that Ohaneze has been very silent on the
issue of Biafra insurgency, though the youth wing of Ohaneze has been
speaking on it. Ohaneze, as the Igbo cultural group, cannot support
Biafra and we dissociate ourselves from it totally.
