Former Governor of Delta State, James Ibori, who is currently serving a jail term in the UK, has denounced reports that he is affiliated with the new wave of pro-Biafra demonstrators. 

According to ThisDay, the protesters in some instances, used Ibori’s image on their banners. This move prompted Ibori to refute the insinuation that he supports the movement.

“The world hailed Nigeria for the peaceful way the rather fierce Nigerian civil war ended in 1970. It is worrisome that 45 years after the end of that war, its residues are being dug up to further divide us and betray our efforts at national reconciliation and development.

This must not be allowed to continue. Nigeria has lived in peace in the past 45 years, and whatever challenges, disagreements that may have re-surfaced, are not beyond our collective ability to resolve. 

I therefore call on all concerned, the demonstrators and the leaders of the different strata of government to identify the problems, determine the solutions, and turn the stumbling blocks into genuine building blocks for real nation building….

Nigeria has split enough blood in internecine squabbles. Now is the time for genuine peace, national unity, and thorough-going, all-inclusive fast-paced development ,” he said.

    This biafra thing is getting out of hand and I think the Government should address it squarely before it turns violent.
