Biafra National Anthem: Ndigbo lives are at risk – Ohanaeze criticizes IPOB

Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, has chastised the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, for banning the Nigerian national anthem across the zone.

According to reports, the IPOB banned the Nigerian National Anthem as well as the consumption of non-native cows in its New Year message.

The Ohanaeze Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, issued a statement on Wednesday cautioning that such an order would spell doom for the people of the region.

The order, according to the Ohanaeze scribe, “will have an impact on ongoing diplomatic efforts to free Nnamdi Kanu.” Instead, the FG could wreak havoc on the South-East.

“However, this order is damaging to the Igbo presidential campaign in 2023, as it will result in avoidable military raids on all public schools in Southeastern Nigeria, as part of the ongoing ‘Operation Golden Dawn.'”

In order to protect the lives of Igbos, he stated that “reciting the Biafra anthem in public schools remains prohibited, forbidden, and proscribed, as the South-East remains an integral part of Nigeria.”

“We cannot afford to mislead and misinform our students, leading them down paths that will have serious consequences for Ndigbo.”

“Ndigbo should defy such despicable orders of absurdity, as this will be the justification for future military Tucson fighter jet deployments to South-eastern Nigeria.”

Rather than enforcing Biafra anthems in public schools, Isiguzoro suggested that “IPOB should join Ohanaeze in promoting Igbo language, cultural heritage, and values in all South-East public schools.” This is the most effective way to keep our youth engaged and imbued with Ndigbo cultural values and heritage.”

He did, however, support the ban on the consumption of Fulani cows as well as their use in Igboland for ceremonies and festival seasons.

“Killer herdsmen disguised as cattlemen have perpetrated heinous onslaughts against our local communities, causing recent security challenges in South-eastern Nigeria.

“Enforcing the ban on the consumption of Fulani cattle should be a protest against the sale of unhealthy and disease-infested cows to Ndigbo,” he said.
