Group Kicks At Urhobo Inclusion In Biafra Map

The self-styled map often claimed by IPOB and MASSOB as Biafra land mass

Urhobo Peoples Integrity Group, UPIO, has condemned in strong terms the inclusion of Urhobo Nation in Biafra map, insisting that the Urhobos have never been part of Biafra conceptual baggage at any time.

UPIO in a statement by its President, Olorogun Ebenezer Okorodudu, however said; “we believe that they (Ibos) have the natural right to self determination, such right does not include compelling other ethnic nationalities to join them without consultation.

“Urhobo Nation deserve some respect. We have an umbrella socio- cultural organisation, the Urhobo Progress Union, UPU that takes decision for our people after exhaustive consultation with our Traditional Rulers and people.

“To conscript us into their agenda without our consent is the highest form of insult for our revered institution and people. We condemn and reject such insult. We pray for good health for President Buhari, peace, unity and prosperity for Nigeria”
