The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Imo State Chapter, under the Coordinatorship of Mazi Abraham, held it’s Thanksgiving Service on Sunday 19th January 2020. The event took place at Annunciation Catholic Church, Imo Housing Estate, Owerri, the State capital.
It afforded the family yet another opportunity to reach out to the participants with the Biafra restoration gospel. The IPOB State Coordinator had a great moment with the people, as he intently and courageously dished out the realities of a freed Biafra via the restoration struggle. He emphasized that the realization of a sovereign Biafra, will permanently put an end to enslavement and the unwarranted killings of our people even within the South-East region.
Mazi Abraham who stepped out with massive crowd of IPOB family members to give their testimonies, fully sensitized the congregation, educating them on the importance for everyone to immediately get enlisted in the struggle. He further stated that IPOB as a highly disciplined entity, tasks nobody financially but requires availability, commitment and courageousness. Enumerating the many encouraging achievements of IPOB so far, the state coordinator pointedly stated that without the tenacity and voice of the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the Fulani killer herdsmen would have by now, overran the entire territory of Biafraland. The global family and the civilised international community have struck a very robust relationship and understanding hence the present monumental diplomatic results, all aimed at fast tracking the total restoration of the sovereign nation of Biafra.
The Officiating Priest, Reverend Father Chinemerem Bonaventure Opara, heartily welcomed the IPOB family, urging the entire congregation of worshippers to arise and collectively join him in prayers for them. He blessed the family with an encouragement not to relent in the struggle, assuring that the project is divinely orchestrated. “God has already ordained that Biafra will come”, he maintained. He pointed out that the movement has remained peaceful and advised members of the congregation to get enlisted for the betterment of all. The priest eventually rounded up the service with prayers, blessing the IPOB family members and the congregation.
Thereafter, Reverend Sister Felicity Agu who had already joined the struggle from Rome, Italy, gathered the members for a brief talk. She revealed that she got enlisted, following the convincing voice on Radio Biafra Broadcast of the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. She joyfully gave encouraging narratives of her experience in the restoration struggle, enjoining members to remain resolute and courageous.
The thanksgiving happened to be the best ever, courtesy of Mazi Abraham’s leadership. Biafra restoration is quite imminent and all family members have to remain unruffled in this all important quest, the sacrifices nonetheless.
