A new Igbo group, the Conference of Igbo Youth Organizations, CIYO, has warned that Ndigbo will no longer watch in silence while their brothers and sisters are slaughtered like animals in the northern states in Nigeria.
 
The group vowed that henceforth, it will be tit for tat. Most of the victims of the ongoing massacre in the North are Christians mostly of the Igbo stock in eastern Nigeria.
 
Also, the Igbo youths in a statement endorsed by 10 youth leaders, including the National Coordinator, Igbo Youth Grand Alliance, Dr. Uchenna Uchehara, who read it after their emergency meeting in Owerri yesterday said: “Events of the past few months in Nigeria have become very disturbing to stakeholders, especially the Igbo nation that played a major role in the founding of Nigeria and in spite of the tragedies of the Biafran war, resolved to give total support to one united Nigeria.”
 
He lamented that the ugly experience of Ndigbo in Nigeria had been the persistent and unprovoked killings of Igbo citizens outside Igbo land.
 
Similarly, a pro-Biafra group, Biafra Zionist Movement, BZM, has announced that it had commenced the process to launch the struggle for a state of Biafra with the international community, saying that the formal declaration of the new Biafra Republic is slated for 5 November, this year.
 
National President of BZM, Benjamin Onwuka said Biafra Republic could not be realised over the years because of the inability of Biafrans to get the support of world powers like the United States of America to back the project.
 
“As we approach the end of 13 years since the mobilization and struggle for Biafran independence began under the aegis of MASSOB and other groups, the people of Biafra have not made much effort in realising our dreams because the struggle has been internalised since 1999,” Onwuka said.
 
He expressed regrets that the international community did not know the aspirations of the Biafra people, saying “ the aspirations of Biafra people must therefore be made known to the international community because the forces preventing the dreams for our independence are vested in the United Kingdom.
 
‘’Biafra can only be achieved when we secure the support of the United States of America; the day USA comes to our side, that day we shall be free from Nigeria; the story of South Sudan where a bloody civil war was fought for over 24 years is a typical example.”
