Ohanaeze Youths Filed to Persuade Biafrans That Nigerian Army Mean No Harm



In UMUAHIA— A group that identified itself as OHANAEZE Youth Council, OYC, cannot convince the Indigenous People of Biafra to think differently from the known facts about the activities of the Nigerian Army at the home of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

In trying to persuade Biafrans to believe that the Nigerian Army is not building an army barrack around the home of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the group started by calling the Federal Government to urgently rebuild the Palace of Eze Israel Kanu of Afara Ukwu, father of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, leader, Nnamdi Kanu, destroyed last September when soldiers raided it in search of the IPOB leader.

According to Ohanaeze Youths Council, rebuilding the palace could go a long way in assuaging the anger of the community on the illegal invasion of the community by soldiers and the attendant trauma they went through.

But  Ohanaeze Youth Council was not careful enough to dive into the matters involving the Nigerian Army and the establishment of mini military barracks. The group tried to assure members of  the Indigenous People Of Biafra, that there is no plan by the military authority to establish a mini military barracks in Afara, saying that its leadership has investigated the allegation and found the rumour not to be true. They assured that nobody should be worried over it. Not minding that it is too early to conclude in such a sensitive issue with the Nigerian Army especially when the Army have been known to establish a heavy military presence around Afara Ukwu Umuahia.
Without proper analysis of their investigation, the Ohanaeze Youth Council made a public statement signed by their Notational Vice President, Comrade Obinna Achionye stating that: “After our investigation, we assure IPOB that there is no iota of truth on the planned establishment of a mini military barracks in Afara.”

Having taking a myopic view of the true situation the group claimed that “Though we are not holding forth for Federal Government or Abia state Government on the issue, but it is high time we reconcile with all agitators and heal the wounds of Python Dance which left many Igbo youths dead, many Igbo youths are still in the morgue and we are worried of how they will be buried.
Also “Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council worldwide insisted that it will always defend the interest of Ndigbo, especially from any external aggression and our collective enemies, the group stated.
