“We are also calling on all clans in Biafra, be you Izon (ijaw), Isoko, Ishekiri, Efik, Ibibio, Idoma, Isobo, Igede, Igala, Igboakiri (Igbanke), Igbos and others to come out and be part of the peaceful events marking this occasion. People will gather at IPOB organized events all over the world to show their respect, but all those in Biafra land should attend the gathering in Ambra state,” the statement read in part.

The group has issued renewed calls for the release of their leader, Nanamdi Kanu, as well as requested that Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano call security operatives to order during the peaceful event.
