The Eze Igbo in Zamfara State, Igwe Egbuna Obijiaku, has said that the agitation for secession by the Indigenous People of Biafra does not mean good for Igbo, because it was aimed at disrupting the peace and stability of the country.



He also commended the South East Governors’ Forum for outlawing the activities of the IPOB.

Obijiaku, who gave the commendation on Saturday while speaking to newsmen in Gusau, said that Igbo in Zamfara were not in support of the activities of IPOB.

He urged the Igbo community in the state to disregard the Biafra agitation.
According to him, the IPOB agitations for Biafra nation, apart from its threat to national unity, peace and stability, is also a big threat to Igbo economic stability.

“We are solidly behind our leaders and governors in this regard. We are also in support of the decision of the Forum of Igbo traditional leaders of all the 19 Northern states,” he said.

“If we look at the entire population of Igbo community, only 40 per cent are living on Igbo land. About 40 per cent are living in the Northern parts of Nigeria, almost 15 percent are living in South Western parts of the country and the remaining five per cent are living abroad.

“Therefore, to me, any agitation calling for separation from this country will not be good for Igbo. We are living in a secular country: that was how God has created us and that is how He wants us to be.

“It is very unfortunate for somebody who has not been in Nigeria over the years to just come and be calling us to join him in unlawful agitations to break peace and stability that were built over the years.

“This IPOB agitation does not mean good for Igbo. In fact, it was aimed at disrupting the peace and stability of the country,” he said.

He, therefore, urged the entire Igbo community in Zamfara to disregard such unlawful agitation and go about their normal activities.

“We should continue to live peaceably with one another, we should cooperate with security agencies and government in maintaining peace and stability in the country”, he added.

He said over the past 20 years, the Igbo community had been living peacefully in Zamfara without any harassment and that they should continue to maintain it. (NAN)

  1. Eze Igbo in Zamfara state? What a joke and insult to Zamfara people. Anyway if there is a Biafra he will be irrelevant.

  2. It is only an illiterate ...or someone who has been mentally and intellectually incapacitated that will drive the course of Biafra. You all have been Brainwashed ...thank God the enlightened ones are not part of your ranks. KANU IS RALLYING OTHER PEOPLE'S CHILDREN TO FIGHT THE COURSE OF BIAFRA AND SOME HAVE DIED WHILE HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN ARE IN THE UK ADVANCING THEIR CAREER. THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT A MAN AND HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN. IF KANU HAD THESE HEAR, HE WOULD NOT BE FIGHTING THIS WAR FEARLESSLY. DEY KILL YOURSELF...

    THIS IS NOT THE ROOT OF NIGERIA'S PROBLEM. IF ALL THE RICH IGBOS WERE INVESTING IN THEIR STATE NO ONE WOULD BE TALKING ABOUT A BIAFRA..YOU ARE ALL JUST THERE FOR YOUR GAIN...

  4. What do you expect from a man that have spent most of his life in the zoo. His stupid types come to Biafran land to speak Hausa language. Filling that he ought to be hailed for learning it. Izuzucha, ilata ala Igbo ka anti tiegi mmanwu. Fool

  6. To be honest, a lot of my Ibo friends are silent millionaires here in Lagos. They do well better than my Hausa and Yoruba friends. Aside from building houses for thier parents in the village, all other investments are here in the SW. They never speak in support of Nnamdi Kanu IPOB. Just my observation

  7. Please can someone confirm or debunk the stats that 60% of Igbos live outside the proposed biafra

  8. Sure! 'Cos Igbos are the most traveled people due to the nature of their trade. The number of Igbos in Kano state alone could be almost half of the number of Igbo in a state in the southeast.
