As the agitation for Biafra gathers momentum across the South-East and some South-South states, the Urhobo nation in Delta State has distanced itself from its inclusion in the proposed map of Biafra by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
The Urhobo Progressive Union, UPU, warned that Urhobo and its territories should not be included in any secession plan by the Nnamdi Kanu-led IPOB.
Making the position known yesterday in a statement, National Publicity Secretary of the UPU, Alhaji Mumakai-Unagha, said “IPOB have their rights of agitation for freedom of self-determination as enshrined in the united nation declaration stressing that other ethnic groups should not be dragged along to avoid the mistake that led to the civil war.
“The magnanimity of Urhobos in allowing Igbos celebrate the Igbo Cultural Day should not be taken for granted as we urge IPOB to delist Urhobo from its proposed map”.
