On this day being Tuesday, the 25th of July 2017, the wife of the Supreme leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Mrs. Uchechi Kanu stormed the Enyimba City of Aba, Abia state in honor of Biafran Children Conference organized by the Abia State Media of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in collaboration with the Abia state chapter of the Indigenous people of Biafra. The conference is organized in remembrance of Biafra children who were starved to death during the 1967/1970 Nigeria - Biafra war”.

The program held at no 77 Ukpor hall, school road, opposite Christ the King Catholic Church Aba was another historical event in Biafra land that will never be easy to wipe off the minds of the people.
All the near-by markets were shut down as people left their businesses to attend the conference. Women, men and children including youths in their thousands were seen singing in their different dialects and dancing with joy.

Mrs Uchechi Okwu Kanu arrived the venue on convoy at 12:34 pm. There were great shouts from different angles to welcome the Biafra mother. Her entourage accompanied her as she waved to the mammoth crowd. She first visited those who lost their loved ones during the peaceful protests in various states of Biafra land and also those who were victims of one injury or the other. The first floor of the building was filled with people who were injured and those who lost their loved ones. Uchechi, apologized for being late, she blamed her lateness on the bad road, caused by the evil politicians in Biafra land and said that it was for that reason we must fight for Biafra to be restored. "Without Biafra, we are in bondage", she said.

She felt very sorry for them and also encouraged them not to loose hope because "IPOB will never leave them behind";" because you have paid the ultimate price and sacrificed for this struggle". They were assured that their names have been written with the Golden pen in the history book of Biafra.
The people shouted with joy, agreed with her and also promised her that they will never give up and they also maintained their faith on either "Biafra or death".

The third floor was filled with children, who were singing and dancing to welcome their special guest of honour. The children on the third floor received Mrs Uchechi Kanu and the deputy coordinator Mazi Okegbuo William, the Abia state coordinator Ikechukwu Ugwuoha, Mazi Celestine Ohadianya the Abia South senatorial zone coordinator and others.

The children led the Biafran National Anthem. Chiamaka Ohadianya presented the welcome address followed by Uzoma Miracle who presented "a cry of the Biafran Child ". She said that her heart was bleeding as today marks one year that she lost her father in the hands of Nigerian soldiers during Ngwa National High School massacre Aba by the Nigerian military forces. She cried helplessly as she read, asking the international community and the world at large why they have been keeping quiet over the issue of Biafra? The wife of the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Mrs Uchechi Okwu Kanu started crying along with other delegates. She asked the Children to always pray for God to give us Biafra and to accept the departed souls.

After dancing with the children she was given an award of honour. She also received an award for and on behalf of her husband Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to congratulate him for his loyalty towards the restoration project. She said "she was very very happy to be in a wonderful program organized by the Abia writers. This is the first time Biafra would hold such program and is a privilege to all Biafrans. Ikechukwu Ugwuoha received an award for his steadfastness, loyalty and humble management of his position as the Abia state coordinator with out fear or favour of any body.

In her closing remark, Mrs Uchechi promised the children that they will have another conference, which will take much of their time to learn and interact as one family. "Children while coming next time, make sure that you come with your writing materials".

She left the venue around 3:02 pm, as the crowd was waving the Biafran flag, chanting and followed her as she left.
