According to Sunday Sun Newspaper, a close associate of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, who is based in London, Dr Chukwuma Egemba, has revealed the next phase of action plans being worked upon by a coalition of pro-Biafra groups to actualize a sovereign state.

According to him, the next phase of the struggle for self-determination would not expose their people to dangerous risks by way of street protests.

Egemba, who noted that such method and tactics were previously deployed by Kanu to create awareness revealed that the coalition of Biafra organizations which met recently at Rojenny, Oba in Anambra State, deliberated on ways to collectively drive the next phase.

He also observed that Kanu’s approach to actualising Biafra has created enmity for the movement globally.
He stated that many Biafra groups, including a faction of IPOB not loyal to Kanu, the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Biafra Government in Exile, among others, have embraced the coalition since it first met in Accra, Ghana two years ago.

His words: “We have all been working in our separate ways in different groups and people now know that these groups will not help us in achieving our ultimate goal of realising Biafra.
The co-founder of Radio Biafra, who worked closely with Kanu for over 17 years, also said that members of the Biafra coalition are supporting the Ohanaeze Ndigbo call for the restructuring of Nigeria. In his interview with Sunday Sun after the sit-at-home order by IPOB recently, Egemba said that the era of sit-at-home with people recording economic losses and losing their lives because of Biafra was over.
