Iwuanyanwu calls for compensation of dead Igbos during civil war

Forty-two years after the Nigeria civil war, a member of Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu at the weekend called for the compilation of the list of Igbos who lost their lives during the war for onward submission to the Federal Government for compensation.

Iwuanyanwu, who made the call during the foundation laying ceremony of the late Odumegwu Ojukwu Memorial Library Owerri anchored by the MASSOB Leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, canvassed for practical demonstration of the slogan ‘No Victor, No Vanquished’ in respect of the three-year civil war in the country.

He described the departed Biafran warlord as an ideal leader, who made enormous sacrifices to preserve Igbo race for three years. “I am proud to be an Igbo man and Igbos are grateful to Dim Chukwuemeka Oduemegwu Ojukwu for his sacrifices. I thank President Goodluck Jonathan for according Ojukwu a national burial.”

Iwuanyanwu also lauded Uwazuruike for setting up MASSOB but regretted that he (Uwuzuruike) had faced series of unwarranted attacks, humiliations and arrests in his struggle to free Ndigbo from marginalization and conspiracy.
Also speaking, the widow of Eze Igbo Gburugburu, Bianca recalled the last moments of her late husband in his hospital bed in London, saying that, he gave up the ghost at exactly 2.45am on November 26, 2012.

Adorned in her mourning black attire, she said the funeral of Ikemba was originally planned to be executed by the Igbo nation, to be led by the MASSOB before the Federal Government stepped in. Iyom Ojukwu, who challenged Igbo leaders to lead by example, said most of them do not know that the essence of leadership was selfless sacrifice to the people.

She commended the MASSOB leader, Uwazuruike for emulating the principles and ideologies of her departed husband by consistently defending and championing the cause of Ndigbo in times of trials and tribulations, noting that, he had been the only Igbo leader since 1970 to dispatch buses to crisis-ridden northern states to ferry Igbos back home for safety.

It's about time !!! The Nigerian government should begin to pay back the igbos for the wealth that was seized from them after the immoral and genocidal war that was carried out against Them!, for genuine peace to reign in this country,the Nigerian government needs to address the issue of lost properties and compensations for the igbos
