…Shuns Nwodo on restructuring

ONITSHA – ELDERS of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in Ikeabiama zone, Nkpor, has insisted that elections ‘won’t hold in Biafraland’ unless a credible referendum process is conducted in Nigeria to determine the fate of inhabitants of the country.

Veteran Amobi Ikenweilo who spoke on behalf of the elders made this known yesterday at the IPOB elders/veterans’ end of the year meeting in Onitsha.

The elders also tackled the President-General of the pan-Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo over his stance on restructuring, saying that Nigeria is dead and has damaged beyond repair.

According to Ikenweilo, “We’re telling the world that we the elders stand on referendum. Whatever they do or wherever they go, we all still insist on referendum. We, the elders of Ikeabiama are solidly behind Nnamdi Kanu in everything he does.

“We participated and fought during the Biafra war and we shot at our enemies and we are still alive and ready to shoot guns again if need be. We are standing behind the decision of Nnamdi Kanu.

“Nigeria is a dead country just like Sodom and Gomorrah and there is nothing anyone can do to have it repaired. We don’t want anything less than referendum. Any condition they like, let them give us but we won’t go back on that so long we get Biafra.”
