The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has lamented the passing of its leader’s mother, Mrs. Ugoeze Sally Nmeme Kanu, while vowing to ensure the actualisation of the sovereign state of Biafra in her honour.

IPOB made the vow on Sunday in a statement in which it described the death of Nnamdi Kanu’s mother as an irreparable loss that has created a vacuum within the Biafra family.

The statement signed by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, confirmed that Kanu’s mother died in August after a brief illness in a German hospital.

It said that the death of Mrs Kanu was as a result of numerous attacks by the Nigerian government and security forces against her family in Afaraukwu, Umuahia, Abi State, and the people of Biafra since 2015.

The statement partly reads: “The global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) felt pain and sorrow for the announcement of sudden death of our mother Mrs and Lolo Ugoeze Sally Nmeme Kanu who died on 30th of August, 2019 in German hospital after a brief illness because of numerous attacks by Nigerian government and security forces on her Afaraukwu family and the people of Biafra since 2015.

“Our heartfelt condolences to the entire IPOB family worldwide but more specifically to our indomitable leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his entire family of His Royal Majesty Sir Eze I. O Kanu (Egwu-ukwu II of Afara-Ukwu).

“This is a passing on to glory of the mother of all mothers, late Lolo Ugoeze Sally Nmeme Okwu-Kan, the womb that gave birth to the most bravest of all, the sagacious, the indefatigable and the unstoppable enigmatic Leader of IPOB worldwide, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

“IPOB worldwide commiserate with our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and entire family for the irreparable loss and vacuum created by enemy within the family of Biafra, we pray to Almighty God Chukwu Okike Abiama to grant us the fortitude to bear the loss.

“Nne Ugoeze, you are no more physically here with us but your spirit lives on. You shall continue to rest in the bosom of the Most High God.

“The struggle which you led with your family members cannot be in vain and we assure you that Biafra independence must come. This is to prove to you that we shall not stop nor grow weary until Biafra freedom is totally restored on your behalf and in your honour and that of many others who lost their lives for us to live.

“The precious family of Eze Okwu Kanu and Biafran families you left behind, we lift them to the Most High God Chukwu Okike Abiama in prayers for total and continued divine favour and protection until freedom is totally celebrated in our life time.”
