On his own part, Mr.Hezekaiah Thomas Akpan, said, "the Hausa Fulani created the name Niger delta and south south to divide them and their Ibo brothers and moreover there is no such name like south south geographically in the world map". He also cited the (4) four markets days of the Igbos and said it was the same in his land. - Eke,Orie,Nkwo and Afor. He declared that the struggle for the restoration of Biafra nation is not for the Igbo man alone. "Fighting for the restoration is for all Biafrans and not for Igbo speaking Biafrans only".
