President Muhammadu Buhari has received South East Group for Change led by Senator Ken Nnamani in Statehouse on May 31, 2016.


This came a day after the pro-Biafran activists commemorating the anniversary of the defunct Biafra Republic clashed with the Nigerian army in Onitsha.

Late General Ojukwu had led the secession of the old Eastern Region and declared the region the Republic of Biafra on May 30, 1967.

His attempt to break away from Nigeria led to the three-year Nigerian Civil War and Biafra’s defeat.

Meanwhile, in recent years, MASSOB and later IPOB have appeared, with its members attempting to revive the ghost of Biafra.

President Buhari has said that agitation for an independent state of Biafra “would not be tolerated” as Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the group is accused of treasonable felony.

Buhari insisted that his government would ensure continuous existence of Nigeria as a united entity.
