Renowned Catholic priest, Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka has foreseen what is likely to happen if the Republic of Biafra is achieved by agitators in South-east. However, enjoining Igbos to uphold Nigeria’s unity.

Reports have it that while speaking in a gathering of Igbos in East London on Tuesday, The popular Catholic priest, Father Mbaka enjoined Igbos to insist on the unity of Nigeria.

He also foretold what might happen if agitators of Biafra led by Nnamdi Kanu, succeed in their quest to achieve the Republic of Biafra.

Father Mbaka stated his conviction that the differences among Igbo communities would arise if Biafra is actualized.

According to Rev Mbaka, “if you think we have trouble in Nigeria now, we will see trouble Biafra. No Anambra man would let an Enugu man be president, no Imo man would let an Abakaliki man be president”.

He also criticized claims that the south-east is being marginalized. He cited an example of the administration of the immediate past president, Goodluck Jonathan, stating that an Igbo man was Central Bank Governor, Finance Minister, just to mention a few.

He further noted that the people the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu has been able to convince to agitate for Biafra are “the children of the poor” who are not thinking properly about the implications of secession.

Father Mbaka emphasized that agitators of Biafra were being misled by Kanu, adding that secession will affect the Igbos more than people from other tribes.

He said, ” no Hausa person owns property in Igbo land and no Yoruba person owns property in Igbo land. But 60% of businesses in northern Nigeria are owned by rue Igbos, 40% of businesses in western Nigeria are owned by the igbos. Go to Sabon Gari in Kano and see what Igbos own there “.
