How come all the tribes that fought the Biafra war with the Igbos in South East Nigeria are no longer interested in the actualization of the Biafran dream, what went wrong?

The National Publicity Secretary of the Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, Alhaji Mumakai-Unagha,  yesterday denounced its membership in the proposed map of Biafra by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Making the position known yesterday in a statement,he warned that Urhobo and its territories should not be included in any IPOB plan.
He said:

“IPOB have their rights of agitation for freedom of self determination as enshrined in the united nation declaration stressing that other ethnic groups should not be dragged along to avoid the mistake that led to the civil war.

“The magnanimity of Urhobos in allowing Igbos celebrate the Igbo Cultural Day should not be taken for granted as we urge IPOB to delist Urhobo from its proposed map.”

  • Don’t get it twisted at all. Urhobos NEVER fought with Igbos for Biafra. Urhoboland HAS ALWAYS been in Nigeria. It was then known as the Mid-Western Region, calved from the Western Region. It was the Eastern Region that seceded and Urhobo was not among at all.
