Prof.Okoro Akpa,a Biafra civil war proficient has called on Igbo leaders to caution Kanu over is agitation.
According to the report,he said this in Enugu in a reaction to the military operations in the southeast.
He said: “It is important that our leaders, the traditional rulers in all communities in Igbo land, our governors, senators, members of the House of Representatives and all other political offices holders come out boldly and cautiously decide on the way forward.” “I commend the southeast governors for proscribing the activities of IPOB but that is not enough. I will advise Nnamdi Kanu and his IPOB members to tarry a little to avoid causing war where innocent and armless easterners will start losing their lives for no just cause,” he said. He also pleaded with those bent on continuing with the agitation for Biafra to remember the horrors of war, advising them to exercise restraints and tow the part of peace. “I want us to reflect on the ravages caused during the Nigerian-Biafran war when millions of Biafrans were killed. Let us reflect on the reason for the war and how the war ended.” “Let us recall that at a certain stage during the war, Ojukwu left us for Ivory Coast and those of us in the battle field didn’t know what transpired but we were full of expectations and when he came back, the music changed.”
