IPOB PRESS RELEASE
We the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership and command of Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukwu KANU commiserate with the families and people of Ogbaru LGA, Anambra West, and East LGAs in Anambra State for the loss of Lives and properties in the recent flooding that swept over their Communities.
The information we gathered showed that about 81 people lost their lives as the flood from River Niger swept through some communities in Anambra State.
We sympathize with many affected families who lost their loved ones, houses, and properties including those who were forced to relocate from their homes due to the flood. May Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama give you strength and courage to forge ahead. IPOB is in solidarity with the affected families.
We wonder why the Federal Government and her Angencies like Disaster Management Agency has not done anything in helping the victims. If this were to be in the North, all the Angencies would have used National Treasury to support them.
We are calling on Anambra State Government, Nigeria Government, and International Ecological Intervention Bodies to intervene and rescue our people in Ogbaru LGA, Anambra West, and East LGAs of Anambra State by finding a permanent solution to this yearly flooding menace.
Ogbaru LGA and other Communities at the banks of River Niger must know that whenever Biafra comes they will never expirence this kind of calamity, because Biafra Engineers will ensure that there is sensible urban planning and enough Sea defense to stop any sort of flood from River Niger to overflow to the sorrunding Communities.
We understand that the Government of Nigeria is not concerned about any Ecological interventions nor environmental protection in Biafra Land. These and many more are the injustices that Biafra Nation will address when the time comes.
