Biafra: Group disowns agitators

A pan Ndigbo socio-political group, The Igbo Conscience (TIC) has disassociated its members from agitation for secession.
The group, at a press conference in Lagos yesterday, stated that the agitation was against what the late Ikemba of Nnewi, Dim Odumegu Ojukwu stood for.
Chairman of the group, Mr. Monday Ubani, a lawyer, who addressed newsmen stated that some of the so called agitators never experienced the 1967-1970 civil war in Nigeria, reminding that, even Ojukwu had declared that agitation for Biafra was no more physical but in the state of the mind.
The group, which pointed out that Ojukwu campaigned for handshake across the Niger for 10 years, said, “he meant that all ethnic groups, from his Igbo people, must find ways to live together in greater peace and harmony as one people, so that black people could take pride of place in global affairs.”
Ubani, who was former chairman of Ikeja branch of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) asserted that “the country is now under a leader who is a social crusader with integrity.
