Biafra is beyond Nnamdi Kanu - Obiozor

Prof. George Obiozor, President-General of Apex Igbo Socio-Political group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, says the issue of Biara is beyond Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Obiozor said that as an Igbo man, Kanu must listen to the voices of reason.

He, however, warned people of the South-East and some organisations to restrain from taking actions or making utterances that put Igbo people in Danger.

Speaking at a World Press Conference on Wednesday at the Ohanaeze National Secretariat in Enugu, he said the Igbo nation was not at war with Nigeria.

The conference tagged ‘Ohanaeze Ndigbo: The dawn of a new era,’ was the first since he was elected earlier this month.

He added that had nothing pending before any authority demands a separate entity for Ndigbo and appealed to Kanu, to toe the part of honour by listening to the voice of wisdom.

He called on Kanu to also drop his agitation for a separate state, saying “The Igbo nation is not at war with Nigeria and has nothing pending before any authority that demands a separate existence from Nigeria.

“Nnamdi Kanu is one of us and he must listen to some of us for several reasons. The fact and reality are that the issues of Biafra are above and beyond his capacity to decide.

“He must listen because he is one of us and we are all in this dilemma together. And our mutual and collective responsibilities are sacred and must be respected.”

According to him, what the late Biafran warlord, Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, meant by the bones shall rise didn’t mean conflict, violence and war.
