The Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has condemned the current agitation for Biafra, saying that even the Igbo god of thunder, ‘Amadioha’ cannot resurrect the project which is dead and long buried.
While hosting a delegation from the Igbo Elders Forum at the state house in Owerri on Friday, January 15th, Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has rejected the bid for the recreation of the defunct republic of Biafra saying that ‘even the Igbo god of thunder, ‘Amadioha’ cannot resurrect the project which is dead and long buried.’
The governor who dismissed the current agitation for Biafra, told the forum that ‘Biafra has long been dead and not even Amadioha can resurrect it,’ adding that ‘they should be grateful that President Buhari apprehended a criminal and terrorist like Nnamdi Kanu who deserves to be punished for his crimes.’
Governor Okorocha said: “On behalf of all the state governors in the eastern region, we have unanimously agreed with President Buhari not to release that terrorist and troublesome boy who does not know his roots. Nigeria will remain as one and the Igbos will be part of it.”
He warned that very soon many youths will lose their lives unnecessarily in the name of the struggle, reminding the elders that even the former leader of the Biafran republic, Chief Odumegwu Ojukwu made it clear that another war of secession was not needed before he died in 2011.
