The national coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Otunba Gani Adams, has said nobody can stop Biafrans from agitating for their own country.
Gani in an interview with The Sun said he will be the last person to go against the agitation of pro-Biafra groups, adding that it is their right.
The OPC leader noted that the Igbos are now more sophisticated than they were during the civil war, calling on Nigeria to let them go.
I would be the last person that would ask the Igbo people to stop the agitation for the Republic of Biafra. It is their right for self-determination.
Look at the population of the Igbo people now and they are the most vibrant and widely-travelled Nigerians. When people are saying that they would crush the Igbo people the way they crushed them in 1967, I always laugh at them.”Adams recommended a return to the 1963 constitution.
The people you have now are not the Igbo of 1967 to 1970. We have a new Igbo society that is more organised and sophisticated.
I was one of those that supported the release of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
The crackdown on IPOB would not help matters because if they are determined for liberation, you cannot stop them no matter the force you use against them.
So, I believe that the only way to resolves all these agitations is to go back to the Republican Constitution of 1963.
