Ezeife contributed to Igbos’ wellbeing, we’ve lost a father – IPOB

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Saturday said the late former Anambra State Governor, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, contributed immensely to the well-being and welfare of Igbos, stressing that the group has lost a father.

IPOB said Ezeife contributed and fought gallantly for the Igbo nation since Nigeria’s independence.

Ezeife, who died recently would be laid to rest today in his hometown, Igboukwu Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.

IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, recounted how the elder statesman usually advised members of the group to be peaceful in their quest to actualize Biafra.

In a statement, Powerful said: “The global family and movement of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great and indefatigable leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu remembers Chief Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife, and we send our heartfelt condolences to his entire family and to all those who his life touched and even changed.

“This great man will be laid to the mother earth today, the 20th of April 2024, in his hometown of Igboukwu Aguata LGA Anambra State.

“Dr Ezeife, the former governor of Anambra state, was among Igbo elders and leaders who contributed immensely for the welfare and well-being of Ndigbo since the independence of Nigeria up to date. He contributed and fought gallantly for Ndigbo and was a supporter of the recent agitation for Biafra restoration.

“Dr. Ezeife normally gave IPOB members advice. He told IPOB members to be peaceful in their quest for Biafra freedom.

“IPOB members have today lost a father who gave them fatherly advice therefore we must ask Almighty God chukwu Okike Abiama to give the family and Ndigbo fortude to bear the loss of such a great man because he contributed very much and fought gallantly against the marginalisation of Ndigbo.

“God Almighty Chukwu Okike Abiama will take his soul to the right place in His abode. Papa je nke oma and prepare a better place for we your children where we will meet you again in our own time. Eze Chukwu Okike Abiama bless you, Papa! May your legacy always be remembered by Ndigbo.”
