The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) were live and direct in Obinze in Imo State to pay their last tribute to Late Mrs Agnes Nwaneri.

Mrs Agnes Nwaneri was among the women Leaders that led a revolution against corrupt warrant Chiefs that were extorting the people with high taxes forcefully. She was against the colonial dictatorial Government of British Colonialists in 1929.

Today the Indigenous People of Biafra deemed it right to pay their tribute to a woman who could be referred to as Mother of the oppressed and Mother of Freedom. IPOB being a force that is fighting for Biafra restoration, have drawn so much inspiration from her lifestyle while she lived. At the funeral, they pleaded with the massive crowd to please emulate the good works of Mama Agnes.

This icon, together with other fearless women from Izon, Ibibio, Oron, Efik and various ethnicities in the then Eastern Region of Nigeria later known as Biafra pushed hard until they achieved victory. The Tax was stopped and so many power drunk warrant Chiefs were relieved of their duties.

The former Imo State women Leader, made a strong statement while evangelizing. She asked the women to move in to the struggle. She sang various BIAFRA Freedom songs while they matched round the venue of the event centre.

Mrs Ngozichukwu Ada-Dav from States Media Lagos, also spoke to the teaming crowd, in her speech she wondered what women were doing at the back stage in this very critical time. She appealed to women to step up and make their voices loud.

Among those present at the funeral were representatives of various states Media under IPOB, which comprises:

Mrs Ngozichukwu Ada-Dav For Lagos State Media.
Mazi Tony Asomba for Anambra State Media.
Mazi Elvis Chinedu for Edo State Media.
