- Rt. Rev Geoffrey Okorafor has called on Igbos to be united
- The religious leader said without unity, Biafra agitation will be futile
- Speaking on Sunday, in Imo state, he also urged Igbos to return to agriculture
Rt. Rev Geoffrey Okorafor who is the Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Egbu has called on Igbos to be realistic in their agitation for Biafra.
It was reported that he spoke during a Eucharistic service of confirmation, admission and induction for Emeabiam Parish, at Christ Anglican Church Emeabiam in Imo on Sunday, October 8.
He said Igbos must focus on their problems especially in the Nigerian context and find ways to solve them.
Okorafor warned that if Igbos don’t focus on their problem, they will not succeed in their Biafra agitation.
The religious leader lamented the lack of unity among Igbos especially between groups agitating for Biafra.
He noted that not even the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)’s agitation and its leadership can solve problems of Ndigbo.
Okorafor called on groups agitating for Biafra not to fight each other but to recognise the fact that “they are pursuing common goals, which are to confront their oppressors, marginalisation and subjugation, as a race, in the national polity.”
“Besides craving for unity, Igbo should embrace economic ventures in which they have comparative advantage in their zone.

“Igbo should return to agriculture because we have good and arable land in the South East, rather than looking up to the North,”
Meanwhile, the Nigerian army on Sunday, October 8, reportedly stormed the home of the leader of tIPOB, Nnamdi kanu.
According to several reports, including a claim by a former minister of aviation, Fani-Kayode, the army carted away some personal belongings of the IPOB leader.
A Facebook user, Prince Kanu Meme, claimed that the soldiers went away with clothes, generators and furniture in their trucks.
