Igbo Group Condemns Biafra Supporters

A group in Enugu state known as the Concerned Citizens of Enugu State (CCES) has condemned the activities of members if the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the state.

IPOB had staged several protests in the state to protest the arrest and continued detention of Mr Nnadi Kanu, the director of Radio Biafra by security operatives in Lagos.

Vanguard reports that CCES described the activities of the separatist group as illegal, unacceptable and anti-democratic which was capable of compromising the unity of the country.

Chief Jeremiah Udeh, the chairman of the group in a statement condemned the approach employed by IPOB to deal with situations.

“We, the Concerned Citizens of Enugu State,CCES, condemn in its entirety the unlawful approach of violent protests adopted by the so-called IPOB in promoting its course.

We do not and will not encourage any unlawful act that will be inimical to the peace and unity of the country and the tireless efforts of the present administration in Enugu State to advance development in the state.”

A week ago, the Igbo Youth Movement promised to continue to fight for the unity of Nigeria and give every Nigerian a sense of belonging which is contrary to the agitation of Biafra supporters.
