‘Reciting Biafra anthem in schools is open invitation for military invasion’ Ohanaeze to IPOB

The apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, yesterday, cautioned the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, (IPOB), on their proposed move to implement a ban on the Nigeria anthem across the South-East region and replace it with that of Biafra.

Ohanaeze warned IPOB that the vocalisation of the Biafra anthem in primary and secondary schools in the zone may attract military invasion, as the Federal Government is not likely to take it lightly.

Recall that IPOB’s Head of Directorates, Chika Edoziem, in his New Year message, announced a ban of the Nigerian national anthem in all the schools within the South-East from this year.

But reacting to these statements, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Secretary-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, said that attempt to implement such might make the Federal Government unleash her odious bitterness on the region.

He added that when such moves attract the attention of the Federal Government, it may lead to rescinding to the request of Igbo leaders to release IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

Isiguzoro also urged IPOB to rethink, as such a move could be destructive routes to the campaign for the Igbo presidency in 2023.

He further said that taking such action is tantamount to dimensional lunacy capable of fertilising the basis for possible military raids on all public schools in the south-eastern region.
