According to report reaching oyogist.com, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has disclosed it request for the devolution of powers and the urgent restructuring of Nigeria into six autonomous regions as contained in a memorandum sent by the organization to the Nigerian National Assembly.

This was made known by Mr. Emeka Emekesiri, IPOB’s original founder while speaking to newsmen in Enugu state. He stated that the organization (IPOB) had made several moves of sending delegations to the British government, asking for the dissolution of Nigerian but their were turned down by the British Government.

According to Mr. Emeka, he said the British government turned down the request of IPOB due to the fact that the former colonial master said it was still interested in Nigeria remaining as one country. He stated that the British government, instead of supporting the dissolution of Nigeria, opted for the devolution of power into regions as contained in the 1963 constitution.


“In 2018 we opened up discussion with the British government, we met them three times and the last time, they told us clearly that they want Nigeria to be one, they don’t want Nigeria to break up. Britain has maintained its stand, it said it wants Nigeria to remain as one country.”

Mr. Emeka also noted that a memorandum, seeking for the devolution of power into regions has been sent to the Nigerian Senate while also stating that it was the first officially submitted memorandum in the history of Biafra struggle.

“So the Biafra memorandum for devolution of power to regions is currently with the senate. So, any moment from now when the hearing begins we shall go for the public hearing and defend our proposal. This is the first time in the history of Biafra struggle that the Biafra memorandum has been officially submitted to the Nigerian National Assembly.”
