IPOB To Honour Victims Of Asaba Massacre During The War At 12 Noon On May 30


The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said that will honour all those killed in Asaba during the war on Tuesday, May 30. NAIJ.com gathered that the group called on all its members to observe a two-minute silence for these people at exactly 12 noon the slated date. A statement by the IPOB's media and publicity secretary Powerful Emma said the two minute silence is to pay tribute to the deceased for the ultimate sacrifice made towards to freedom of Biafra.

Emma said: "Also those who paid ultimate sacrifice in the field battle and protests in our land for this present generation might live will be honored and remembered, including those massacred in Asaba in 1967. They will be honoured with a 2 minute silence immediately the clock strikes 12 noon on that day."

We expect every man, woman, child and businesses to observe this great annual event by staying at home and never involve in any business activity on that day. There will be no movement in Biafraland both human and vehicular while Biafrans in diaspora will take the streets of their respective countries of residents around the globe.

However, that will be the least we can do to show them and God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama that these generation of IPOB and those to come will remain indebted to them that gave their lives to stop the elimination of Biafrans from the face of the earth," he said.

Emma also said that there would be special prayer sessions at the Okikirka Grammar School in Rivers state.

He said that the session will be held in the hometown of late Chief Frank Opigo who advised the supreme leader of the Biafran Armed Forces Chukwuemeka Ojukwu and the members of Eastern Consultative Assembly on Biafra.

"Holy men and women will pray at the ancient and spiritual sites of Arochukwu and Enugu on that day. "The people of Otukpo/Idoma/Igede in Benue State, Igala in Kogi State, Igbanke in Edo State, Calaber, Yanegua, Warri, Uyo, Lagos, Kano, Kaduna, Abuja etc, will shut down on that fateful day for the 50th year anniversary Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and his second in Command late Major General Philip Effiong declared for the independent state of Biafra on the 30th May 1967," the IPOB said.
