The anti-Igbo crisis prevalent in some parts of Nigeria has continued to draw attention to the right-thinking citizens in the diaspora. There have been consistent attacks on the Igbo people as well as their businesses and property in States including Lagos, Kano, and Kaduna, among others.
Shops and properties owned by the Igbo people are constantly being attacked and razed by those championing anti-Igbo agenda. The recent attacks during and after the 2023 general election in Nigeria have again questioned the sermon on unity and oneness of the various ethnic groups in Nigeria.
Reacting, a popular human rights advocate, Barrister Aloy Ejimakor has stated that the persistent forceful exit of the Igbo people at Lagos and elsewhere must be equally followed by the Biafra referendum.
Barrister Ejimakor, however, has consistently condemned the lingering dehumanizing treatments meted out to the Igbo people by other tribes including the Yoruba, Hausa, and Fulani.
He, therefore, advocates for the Biafra referendum for the Igbo people to determine their fate on whether or not to continue as part and parcel of the country, Nigeria.
Ejimakor further warned those orchestrating the crisis against the Igbo people to remember that this is not 1997, saying that no one eats his cake and still has it.
