The Chairman of the South-East Council of Traditional rulers, Eze Eberechi Dike, has hailed the call for a Biafran nation, adding that the agitation for the ‘Republic of Biafra’ is to enhance peace and unity among the Igbo.
Dike stated his support for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, during an interview with journalists in Minna after his interaction with the Igbo living in Niger State.
He said the ongoing agitation would put back the Igbo nation on track to self determinism.
He added, “Those behind the agitation deserve a pat on the back because the objective behind the cause is not for anything but for peace and progress of the eastern region.
‘My problem has been the unity of the Igbo people because this is the only way we can achieve unity and my goal has always been how we can bring positive changes to our people.
