A cleric, Bro. Samuel Ajayi of the John 3:16 Ministry, Aba, Abia State has lauded Noble Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka and ex- Ohaneze President, Dozie Ikedife over their stance on the agitation for Biafra.
Soyinka had last week in an interview with Al Jazeera, an international TV cable network said he supported the agitation and that he was “very much pro-Biafra because I recognize that the Igbo have been wronged desperately”.
Condemning what the Igbo have passed through in the country, Soyinka further stated, “They (Biafrans) have been brutalized in a way that justifies their feeling that they were not part of the nation”.
Ikedife on his part said no man can stop Biafra, stressing that Biafra was a thing of the spirit which was beyond any human destruction.
Ajayi in commending the duo over their stance on Biafra said as a people marginalized in their own country, deserved the right to seek self determination.
The cleric said both Soyinka and Ikedife deserve the commendation by every Igbo man and woman for speaking so glowingly in support of Biafra and stated it behoves on the people to actualize it.
On how Biafra could be achieved, Ajayi said, “God called me and said, ‘My son, until my people Igbo unite, refrain from idolatry and hatred against one another, they will remain in wilderness. I love unity of my people’”.
Stating that Biafra would be achieved in no distant time, the cleric however said it would not be through violence and demonstrations but that it must be through prayers.
