Monday Osayande, Warri
Hundreds of Igbo on Monday stormed Warri, Delta State, calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to grant them freedom, saying: “We have met with all the conditions to become a separate country of our own; hence we decided to come out today to ensure that the struggle is achieved”.
The Igbos said duing a peaceful protest in commemoration of the 49th year of the struggle for the actualization of the movement of the Sovereign state of Biafra that the protest was in remembrance of the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, who initiated the struggle 49 years ago.
The protesters who spoke with newsmen through their leader, Comrade Patrick Agulobi, zonal leader, Delta South, explained: “It is pertinent that we carry out this action to actualize the dream which Chief Ojukwu started 30thMay, 1967. We believed that this laudable dream must not die”.
“A lot of persons have been killed even in some Northern parts of the country we are using this opportunity to plead with president Muhammadu Buhari to call them to order”, Agulobi further said.
