IPOB: Ohanaeze Ndigbo cancels Igbo day celebration in Bayelsa

Post by Saintoe » Wed Sep 27, 2017 11:42 pm

The pan-Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has ordered the cancellation of the 2017 Igbo day celebration in Bayelsa state.
It cited the need to use the occasion to stay indoors and pray for peace and unity in Nigeria.
According to the group, though the Igbo indigene in the state cannot pretend over the incidence of violence and killings in the Eastern states over the agitations by some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the decision to cancel the celebration in Bayelsa was to mourn those that were killed in Aba.
President of the Bayelsa state chapter of the Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief Maurice Amaku, while briefing newsmen in Yenagoa, said the decision was borne out of a collective agreement reached by the leaders and members of the Igbo community in the state.
