Count Us Out Of Biafra, Itsekiri Tell IPOB, MASSOB by Super1Star: 12:42am On Jun 09, 2017
The Itsekiri ethnic nationality in Delta State on Thursday called on Igbo leaders, particularly, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, to warn Igbo youths against causing tension in the country by their agitation for Biafra Republic.

Specifically, the ethnic nationality said that pro-Biafra groups must desist from counting the Itsekiri as being part of the Biafra Republic.

Condemning the ultimatum issued against the Igbo people by some northern youth groups, Itsekiri leaders stressed that if Igbo leaders had condemned the activities of their youths who were using Biafra to destabilise the country, Nigeria would not have faced the latest threat.

Itsekiri’s apex socio-cultural group, Itsekiri Leaders of Thought, in a statement by its chairman and secretary, Chief Edward Ekpoko, and Sir A. S. Mene, respectively, stated that the Itsekiri people were committed to the unity of Nigeria and would do all it could to promote and protect its unity.

The group said that it would work for the unity of Nigeria at all times.

The statement said, “The proposed Biafra Republic as claimed by the agitators includes the whole of the present Delta State. Itsekiri’s homeland of Warri is not part of that enterprise. We recall with pains the day the defunct Biafra Army invaded Warri and Benin in the then Midwestern Region on August 9, 1967 and say never again will the Itsekiri tolerate such an invasion.

“The Itsekiri ethnic nationality is committed to the unity of Nigeria and will do all it can to promote and protect it as one and indivisible country. We can always sit and talk about our differences. As Major-General Phillip Effiong said on January 14, 1970 that the Republic of Biafra ceased to exist, so we the Itsekiri wish it to be eternally for the peace and development of our great Nation.”

The statement commended the Arewa Consultative Forum, the Northern Governors’ Forum, especially Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, for their bold steps in condemning the Hausa youths’ ultimatum asking the Igbo to quit the North in 90 days.

I[b]IJAW YOUTH COUNCIL BLASTS MASSOB FOR DECLARING SOUTH-SOUTH PART OF BIAFRA[/b]

The ijaw youth council worldwide, the apex youth body of all youths has
taken a swipe at one of the leaders of the Movement for the Actualisation
of the Sovereign State Of Biafra (MASSOB) for claiming that the south
south region is part of the Biafra territory.

In a statement made available to the press and signed by the Spokesman for
Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide, Barr. Henry Iyalla, it states:

“The attention of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) worldwide has been drawn to
a statement credited to one MASSOB leader, Solomon Chukwu published in the
Vanguard and other newspapers of Tuesday June 6, 2017 declaring that the
south-south region is included in the territory of Biafra which MASSOB,
IPOB and other self-determination movements are agitating for. This
comment has been made by other Biafra leaders in different forums. For the
records, the IYC wishes to state as follows:

1. That the Ijaw and Niger Delta people identifies with the Biafra
struggle for self-determination.

2. However, we wish to state clearly that the Ijaw and Niger Delta
struggle for self-determination predates the Biafra agitations. It is on
record that even before the Biafra declaration of independence in 1967,
Major Jasper Adaka Boro during the twelve days revolution declared a
Niger- Delta Republic in 1966. This was before the advent and struggle for
the actualization of Biafra.

3. The Ijaw and Niger Delta people had always maintained separate and
distinct identity from our Igbo brothers of the South East.

4. While we share in the Biafra agitation for self-determination which is
not in any way different from our agitation; we wish to clearly state that
the Ijaw areas are not part and parcel of the territory of Biafra.

5. We will collaborate with our south eastern, middle belt and any other
minority groups in the quest for self-determination based on mutual
respect and common understanding. In the coming days, we will start the
constructive engagement on these terms”, the statement was quoted as
saying.

I am ashamed of these people. Just look at how a major ethnic group who should be calling shots in politics have turned themselves into a laughing stock, all because they couldn't swallow the outcome of their gamble even though Ijaws themselves moved on just weeks after their son's defeat.

The Middle Beltans, Ijaws, Urhobos, all gave them the middle finger, Northerners have banished them from their lands, now Itsekiris have. The sooner they understand and accept this is an IGBO ONLY thing, the better for them.

Very much. Religious extremist attitude and intolerance. Ibos: Muslim this and muslim that. Hausa/Fulanis: Anti-Christians cheesy

Difference: Hausas-Fulanis have a born to rule attitude, while Ibos are a classic case of special victims unit.
