The inauguration which took place in Enyibuchiri village at Izzi Ebonyi LGA of Ebonyi state commenced around the hour of 2:00pm on Sunday 18, February 2018, men women and youths from the area gathered in their hundreds to be part of the red later day event which according to them who expressed themselves during the inauguration was highly excited and glamorous that after all said and done, a family unit was established in the jurisdiction to champion the struggle for Biafra restoration within and outside the geographical setting of Enyibuchiri.

Before the official inauguration took place the coordinator Ebonyi north senatorial district Mazi Ezike wisdom took time to explain to the people why the agitation for Biafra restoration under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu of IPOB and the need for them to be part of the struggle. According to him "Biafra people are being marginalized, maimed and even get decimated in large number by the Hausa Fulani and the Nigeria government though we own the resources that kept Nigeria running as a  government, all the efforts made by the indigenous people of Biafra are shattered and brought to nothing by those who claim the ownership of Nigeria, that is why Nnamdi Kanu who is the supreme leader of IPOB as a group came to champion the struggle for our total liberation from the contraption called Nigeria, 'we ought to give our support in our own little way as a people because tomorrow everybody will be rewarded according to his/her work."

In other hands Mazi Nweke Ugochukwu the state IPOB deputy coordinator urged them to be focused and shun any form of fear and intimidation from anybody or even the government because IPOB are fighting for what is due for them as enshrined in the United Nations charter on the rights of the indigenous peoples for self-determination and self-rule. He said "Do not allow yourselves to be intimidated by anybody or group either governmental group or circular group, we have seen a lot in the struggle for Biafra restoration but we will not retreat or surrender because our total freedom is at hand".

Some moment was given for questions in case there is any where the members needs clarification on the activities of IPOB and Mazi Chidi Obam asked to know if it is right to collect money from the Nigeria politicians even as campaign for 2018 Nigeria general election draw closer and still be part of the struggle and Mazi Ezike Wisdom while answering him said "It is not appropriate to collect money from them as a freedom fighter because when you do so you have sold your right as a person, 'again the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not sponsored by any politician or government rather the little contributions from the members globally".

Meanwhile Awoke Samuel demanded further explanation on how members are taking into the struggle and Mazi Ezike Wisdom explained "It starts from evangelism if the person accept your gospel then take him or her on oath and link him to a nearby IPOB family unit but if there is none around guide him on how to start one there".

After the official inauguration the coordinator of the new unit Mazi Romanos Ovuoba while addressing the people expressed his high level of joy over the cooperation from his people who trooped out in mass to be part of the struggle, he appreciated those who came from the state to perform the inauguration especially the coordinator Ebonyi north senatorial district Mazi Ezike Wisdom for his doggedness in the quest for Biafra restoration in the senatorial district and state at large. He promised to ensure penetration of the gospel for Biafra restoration into the nooks and crannies of their jurisdiction, according to him “In no distant time more units will be established and inaugurated still in this jurisdiction".

Nevertheless, the unit women leader Nwada Florence assured that she will work round the clock with the coordinator and all the principal officers to bring in many other women in the fold especially in their newly inaugurated family unit. Mbam Ndubuisi a member of the unit urged his people and Biafrans especially those in Biafra land and Nigeria to stay away from the Nigeria politicians because they never mean good for our people generally and will never do so.
