Anambra APGA Primaries: Bianca's defeat, humiliation to Ojukwu a Pro-Biafra group.
THE Biafra Independence Movement, a splinter from the Moment for Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) on Tuesday lamented the outcome of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) primary elections for Anambra-South Senatorial Zone, saying that the defeat of the wife of the former Biafra Leader, Lady Bianca in the poll was a humiliation to late Chief Emeka Ojukwu.
The Spokesman of the group in Enugu West Zone of Enugu State, Anayochukwu Eze, told reporters in Enugu that the late Ikemba would be so sad in his grave owing to the injustice meted out on his wife, Bianca Ojukwu.
Eze, who spoke alongside Nwanosike Igbo and Chief Edwin Iloagu, a member of the BIM-MASSOB elder-in-council, said the late Ojukwu would be so sad in his grave over the activities of the APGA leadership.
According to him, 'APGA is no more Igbo party; they have betrayed our icon, late Chief Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, by pushing out his wife from the party's primary. They did not show any respect to our icon.
'Like we said before, we have passed a vote of no confidence on them and that is why we said they should not use our logo for anything again, either in their vehicles or branded clothes. Let them be on their own and allow our icon to rest in peace.
'We know how Ojukwu suffered for that party; he solely marketed that party to make it known as Igbo party, but they betrayed him, even in death.
'He is so sad where he is now because nobody would have believed that he will be so treated by same people who rode on his name to become what they are today, including the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano.
'He has forgotten so soon how BIM-MASSOB stood by him when IPOB insisted that there won't be an election, but we countered them, convinced our people to participate in that governorship election and he won. Few months after, he is now fighting our icon.
'All those involved will suffer the consequence of betraying our icon; they will test our might during the upcoming election.
'However, our late leader will be happy now owing to the action we have taken so far and we shall perfect it during the election period. They will all be humiliated'
