Biafra sit-at-home order: Group warns Igbo against self-destruction

The Igbo for Nigeria Movement has strongly frowned against the sit-at-home order on May 30 by some groups agitating for the rebirth of Biafra.

Igbo youths launch anti-Biafra campaign, tear Kanu apart

South East youths under the aegis of Igbo for Nigerian Movement, INM, have advised people of the region against heeding the call for secession, stressing that the actualization of Biafra is not the panacea to their problems but the beginning.

The body is making the call at the back heel of struggle by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, for the restoration of Biafra.
According to the separatist groups, Nigeria is a zoo and has succeeded in expunging them from the scheme of things in the nation.

But, speaking with newsmen on Sunday, leader of the group, Igwe Ifeanyi warned the entire Ndigbo to “bury the idea of the struggle of Biafra and embrace the new platform, INM for intellectual and strategic engagements that would enthrone equity, fairness and justice to every member of the Nigerian State.”

Ifeanyi noted that the ongoing clamour by some persons for the secession of Igbo from Nigeria was a call to self-destruction and would only do them more harm than good.

He said the only if Igbos were united can they reap maximum benefits from the peaceful co-existence of one United Nigeria.

Ifeanyi admonished those supporting the return of Biafra to “quickly swallow their word and work together for a united Nigeria in line with the vision of great nationalists like Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe.”

The INM  leader insisted that the struggle for the actualization of Biafra is the beginning of more trouble for the land, as the agitation has continue to sow the seed of suspicion for the average Igboman particularly in the political circle used by other ethnic groups as the key to other segment of our national life.

According to Ifeanyi, "The ongoing clamour by some infertile-minded Igbo brethren for the secession of South east from Nigeria is a call to self-destruction, to say the least.

"It is obvious that those championing the movement for the return of Biafra were not born during the civil war and have no single idea of what Ndigbo went through during and after the war.

"We therefore call on those behind this movement to sheathe their sword and embrace a one and united Nigeria.

"Biafra is never the solution to our problem. In fact, it is the beginning of more problems for our already-troubled land.

"INM stands for the unity of Nigeria and urge those beating war drum to heed to the old Igbo adage that says, "ogwumagana agahi ogbanye ije ya maka na ohia n'ere oku (the chameleon does not change its movement because the bush is on fire.)."
