BIAFRA: IPOB OBIGBO LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA (IGWEOCHA) HOLDS MONTHLY GENERAL MEETING

BIAFRA: IPOB OBIGBO LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA (IGWEOCHA) HOLDS MONTHLY GENERAL MEETING

Ogochukwu Nnanna Reporting For Family Writers Press

The enlarged family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in Obigbo local government area (Igweocha) held it's general monthly meeting on Sunday 26th August 2018. This is in keeping with the norm of holding an enlarged family meeting within the area, principally as a means of encouraging one another concerning the Biafra restoration struggle. The monthly gathering affords them the opportunity also to socialize and get adequately intimated with one another as brethren.

It should be noted that each of the zones in the local government area holds it's meeting exclusively and respectively according to their schedules.

This edition of the monthly meeting was exceptionally remarkable as "mock evangelism" outreach program was massively carried out within Obigbo and environs by participants, preparatory to the upcoming Biafra referendum exercise. The people were wholesomely alerted on the need for their full participation when the time comes, as a prelude for the final disengagement of Biafrans from this  "evil forest" called Nigeria.

The evangelism outreach program also served as a medium to drum up support for the IPOB  organised general strike throughout the entire Biafra territory, marked for Friday 14th September 2018. This is in strict observance in honor of Biafrans killed during Operation Python Dance II in the course of the murderous invasion of the residence of the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Nigerian army which provided the platform to get him and his aged parents abducted till date. The IPOB Obigbo enlarged family members encouraged the residents in the area to strictly adhere to the Sit-At-Home order as clearly given by the IPOB global leadership.

The general monthly meeting thereafter commenced with the theme of the meeting clearly spelt out: "REMAIN STRONG FOR WE ARE ALMOST THERE". The gathering recorded encouraging number of IPOB members within the local government area. Opening prayers, Biafra National Anthem and formal introductions were duly taken.

The most interesting/encouraging moment of the meeting was the sight of the presence of our 75 years aged mother who took part in the IPOB Women peaceful protest staged in Owerri on Friday 17th August, 2018. She was amongst the over 114 IPOB women abducted, incarcerated and grossly molested by Rochas Okorocha and the Imo State Government. The aged mother, brushed aside the pains of what she suffered at Owerri, to attend the general monthly meeting, as an encouragement to our ladies and other women in the struggle. She stated that she has through her detention in prison, paid a ransom for daring to demand publicly albeit fearlessly, the whereabouts of her son - Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and for Biafra referendum. She advised all to remain resolute and focused for in no distant time, Biafra will be restored.

The Coordinator of the Obigbo local government area, poured encomiums on our aged mother for her doggedness and courageous. He  encouraged her to keep up with the struggle undeterred for her sacrifice is an additional impetus in our collective effort towards the restoration of our homeland. The Coordinator further enjoined all members to remain strong and cautious against the wiles of the fulanised saboteurs/enemies. He sternly warned those involved in acts of subterfuge, stating that such band of evil doers will have no place most definitely in an independent Biafra.

The general monthly meeting eventually came to the end with moments of refreshments and snap shots of group photographs.
