One of the leaders of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Kennedy Kenechukwu Ochi, has said no amount of intimidation would dim the struggle for a sovereign state of the Igbo.

He stated in Enugu yesterday that agitation for the realisation of Biafra would continue as long as the leadership of the country perpetuates ‘slavery’, arrests and clamping of innocent Igbo agitators into prison.

Ochi, who led the march to mark the inauguration of President Donald Trump of the United States (U.S.) on January 20, 2017 where 11 agitators were reportedly killed during a clash with security officials in Port Harcourt, stated that since the ugly incident, he had been in hiding over alleged threats to his life.

“This struggle is my life. I became an IPOB member because the situation of Ndigbo has not changed in Nigeria. Every government has foisted policies that have made Ndigbo look ordinary in a country where they are stakeholders. We want to resurrect Biafra because that is the only place we can have our freedom. But they are killing us, they are arresting us and putting some of us in prison,” he said.
