ADAMAWA, SEPTEMBER 21, 2017 – The Igbo community in Adamawa State on Thursday dismissed the agitation for Biafra.
Leader of the community, Godwin Onemaka while addressing journalists in Yola, described the struggle for Biafra as unnecessary.
Onemaka urged the agitators to consider the consequences of plunging Nigerian into chaos by divisive activities.
Citing the effect of another Civil war, Onemaka maintained that Biafra agitation had failed and there was no need to restart it again.
According to Onemaka, agitators should have a rethink because people of the South East extraction are looking for ways to develop there selves.
Onemaka said, “Biafra agitation has failed and there is no need to restart it; the agitators should consider the interests of the Igbo in other parts of the country.
“We, the Igbo in Adamawa, kick against the agitations for Biafra and we view it as an unnecessary capable of plunging the nation into crisis.
“We advise the agitators to stop, so that Nigeria will remain united and they should remember that since the agitation had failed in the past, revisiting it is unnecessary.
“We are looking for a way of developing ourselves and the country while most of us have invested much outside south eastern part of the country.
“So, we want to distance ourselves from the agitation, we have lived in the northern part of the country for years and our children have studied there most of whom are graduates now.’’
