South East traders disown Biafra

25 November 2015, 14:07

Abuja - Traders from the South-East geo-political zone have disowned the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu and other pro-Biafran agitators, Punch reports.

The traders under the auspices of ‘South East Markets Amalgamated Traders Association, in a statement made available to journalists in Awka on Tuesday, said traders in the area had nothing to do with the Movement for the Actualisation of Biafra and the Indigenous People of Biafra, headed by Kanu.

The traders’ statement was signed by their President and the Secretary, Okwudili Ezenwankwo and Temple Udeh respectively.

They said that their position on the issue had become necessary because of frequent calls by the secessionist groups for closure of markets in the area, stressing that the public could be deceived by such calls into believing that traders were involved in the lawless struggle.

The statement stressed that “traders in the zone shall not support any action that will aggravate the hardship already being experienced by Nigerians”.

They appealed to the President to address the issue of dilapidated federal infrastructure in the South East, particularly the federal roads in the zone, which they described as death traps.
