Growth is a major characteristic of a living thing. So, the ability of anything to grow entails its living.
Biafra is still alive, very much alive. I see this truth in the continuous growth of IPOB. Though the Jihadists are annihilating, to gain grounds, but IPOB has become and maintains the fastest and widest growing phenomenon and movement in Africa and the world at large.
More family groups are springing up here and there. The overwhelming is the response to the struggle by the so-called minorities towards the restoration of Biafra.

Recently, strongholds have emanated in places like Igwurutali, Omagwa, Aluu, the ancient kingdom of Isiopko, Elele, Obigbo, to mention but a few. The latest in the above list was inaugurated precisely in Komkom municipal area of Obigbo in Rivers state on the 24the of June, 2018.

Fathers, mothers, children came out in different colours celebrating in pump and pageantry welcoming IPOB to the community. There, likes of HRH King Oparali Okocha Olumiri, Igwe Omemgbeoji Ohazurume, Mazi Chidi Anorue, Mazi Theophilus Aja, Mazi Ugochukwu Friday and a host of other prominent sons and daughters of Rivers state, were present to grace the occasion kicking off the zone 4, Igweocha warriors.

The question of the minority groups- Efik, Ogoja, Ijaw, Ibibio and Ikwerre within the delineation of Biafra was a matter of fundamental importance.  Now, ask yourself, is the Biafra struggle still an Igbo thing, as earlier perceived? Are Asari Dokubo, HRH King Oparali Okocha Olumiri Igbo men? The answers are not farfetched. Until you stop lying to yourself, you won't see clearly. Wait a minute, the Sun has risen, let's get back to work.
