Over 15 pro-Biafran groups converged at the home of the late Igbo leader, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, in Nnewi, Anambra State over the weekend.
The agitators held a prayer session and insisted that there was no going back on their quest for a sovereign state of Biafra.
This was contained in a statement by the leader of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, Uchenna Madu.
Apart from the Madu-led MASSOB, other groups in attendance included the Eastern Peoples Congress, Biafra United Liberation Council , Joint Revolutionary Council of Biafra, Igbo Hebrew Cultural Restoration, and Biafra Actualisation and Defence Squad.
Also in the gathering were Biafra Revolutionary Organisation, Biafra Liberation Crusade, Salvation Peoples of Biafra, Ekwenche Organisation, Biafra Peace Corps, Billie Human Rights Initiatives as well as Igbozurume Organisation.
The statement said, “All pro- Biafran groups agreed to work together as one for the purpose of Biafra actualisation and restoration.
“The groups also agreed on the unity of purpose for Biafra and that all pro-Biafran groups should maintain their individual status , name and internal running of their affairs.
“The groups rejected the proposals for states as federating units of Nigeria as part of restructuring; it is totally against the wish and desire of the people of Biafra.
“While we are reaffirming our total commitment to Biafra actualisation, we wish to state that the only kind of restructuring that will be acceptable to us is to recognise the six geopolitical regions as federating units, using the 1963 constitution as a template.”
