Idoma People Disown Biafra Struggle by JamesOkwy(m): 5:38pm On May 31, 2017
The Idoma People of Nigeria has distanced themselves from the inclusion of Idoma territory in the map of Biafra by the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The Idoma National Youth Forum for Justice said the inclusion of Benue South in the map of the defunct Biafra was a deliberate attempt by the agitators to pitch the Idoma people against the Nigerian government.



IPOB had recently claimed that Biafra spans from Itsekiri land on the western boundary with Oduduwa to Bakassi on the eastern boundary with the Cameroons, and also stretches from Idoma and Igala land on the northern boundary with Northern Nigeria to the Bight of Biafra which is South of the island of Bonny.



In a 5-point communique issued in Otukpo at the end of a meeting held by the Idoma youth, they dissociated the Benue-South zone from the “so-called Biafra.”



The communique signed by Emmanuel Omonu, president of the youth arm of Idoma national apex association said, “We will not allow any inch of our land to be part of the ill-thought-out enterprise call Biafra.”



He said, “We ask the IPOB and other secessionist groups to henceforth a halt to stop referring to Idoma community as part of Biafra as it touches on the collective sensibilities of our people and could provoke ethnic crisis.



“We are surprise that the likes of Kanu and his other Bifara supporters have not learnt their lesson after returning to Nigeria following the fall of Biafra in January 15, 1970 with tales of woes and horrors.

“The Idomas and other ethnic groups who have been carved into the maps being circulated by Nnamdi Kanu and his groups, we shall not tolerate any provocation from this group of persons as law abiding citizens of Nigeria and hereby wish to draw attention of the Federal Government and the International community to this fraud of a Biafra Republic to extort and criminalize our people.



“Our sons have held very high positions in Nigeria just like the Igbos and we see no reason for any secession anywhere in Nigeria, the right thing for all to do is to task our leaders in authority to judiciously apply the people's resources for the overall benefit of all whilst subscribing to the current administration's war against corruption.



Omonu said Kanu, who recently donned the Idoma traditional attire to a court hearing in Abuja was only using Biafra to enrich himself and family.



The group called on Benue South, political leaders and traditional rulers to “speak out now as their silence is becoming eloquent.”



“We want to make it empathetically clear that Idoma land was never and can never be part of the fraud call Biafra. We believe in one Nigeria and will do all within our power to protect the unity of Nigeria. Biafra died in 1970 and has gone into history. They should desist from dragging our name into their fraudulent business,” the group added.

Idomas are not part of Biafra, have never been and will never be. We have nothing in common with you people. Igbos are busy calling everyone in Nigeria fulani slaves meanwhile they are the ones begging for freedom. Is it not a slave that wants freedom? Truth is, you guys have no friends anywhere. Nobody likes you both home and abroad. Even South South doesn't like you so please change your ways.

Are we asking for your help? We will deal with whatever issues we have our own way. Go save yourselves first. Na by force?

What are you people afraid of that you can't just get your states and leave? You keep attaching yourselves to people who never asked for your hands in the first place.

Leave Benue South alone. We are not interested. If the Fulanis wipe us out, that is none of your business. Stop taking painkillers for our body aches.

It is safe to say you are one of the problems in Nigeria. Ndigbo are not begging for freedom but agitating for a nation state. After the reading the above crap, I came to conclusion that you are ignorant of the words such as "begging and freedom".

The annoying part to me is that even the so called freedom fighter had to beg (after spending just few months in prison, when he could have learnt from other world freedom fighters) through his lawyers that he needed medical attention so as to gain "freedom" and leaving his fellow imprisoned agitators behind.

Dont mind the idiots. I wonder what part of "we are not interested" they don't understand. Did anyone tell them they need to be rescued from herdsmen? Are they done rescuing themselves that they want to forcefully rescue others?

When did they become so fvcking altruistic they care so damn much about other people's welfare?
