Okezie Ikpeazu: Abia State Governor

Abia State government has continued in earnest, as a major tool in the hand of Nigeria’s central government to battle the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). The state, mainly its Aba axis, has always been a stronghold of Biafra. From the time of Biafra/Nigeria war of 1967/70, the Abia axis (not a state then) was strong for Biafra, which was why the War Museum is situated in Umuahia, the state capital today.
It presented the greatest support and buffer for Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, the first head of state of the country from 1967 to 1970. This was why Ojukwu willed that his corps must be taken to the town before his burial. Still in our days, Abia State people have not given up their passion for Biafra. Instead, they have grown in it in leaps and bounds.
No wonder Nigerian central government is focusing 99 per cent of its latest attack on the Biafra struggle on the state. It opened two-pronged attack outlet on Biafra yesterday, Wednesday, November 22, through the state government under Okezie Ikpeazu.
One, was through the sack of market association executives, which they believed have been supportive of the Biafra struggle by not doing enough to stop traders from closing shops whenever IPOB ordered it. They have perfected plans to appoint their agents as market association leaders.
The intention is to use the new appointees to identity Biafra-centric traders, to finger them to the Gestapo to be routinely apprehended, killed or “disappeared”.
The number two attack point is the hosting of an FM radio by renegades from Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) who vowed to destroy the Biafra activism from within. Their intention was to counter everything coming from the Nnamdi Kanu-led IPOB, with its Directorate of State in Germany. They hope that by doing so, they would be whittling down the fervent spirit of Biafra activism in Abia State Biafrans.
The new station, which is being floated under financial empowerment from Nigeria government, is being managed by some disgruntled Biafrans who sold Nnamdi Kanu out, hoping to inherit the leadership of IPOB. They had hoped to inherit the leadership of Biafrans after the Nigerian government had taken him out. The offer was made to them through the president of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nwodo, who visited them in United States of America (USA) last August.

This latest development calls for concerted efforts at staying together for all hardcore Biafrans, and strict management of information to avoid infiltration. Biafra Choice Media was however promised by an IPOB leader under Nnamdi Kanu that its leadership was equal to the task.
