One of the major agitators of the Biafran cause who lost his life in the line of duty has been given a ‘state burial’.
A young man simply identified as Chikaodi a.k.a Uka Ume who was allegedly killed during a Biafran protest in Aba on May 30th, 2016 was laid to rest today, Sunday, the 24th of July, 2015 at his village at Ndi Uduma Awoke in Abia State.
Members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) took over the community flying their colours as they ensured he was given a befitting burial.
The government of President Muhammadu Buhari has repeatedly frowned at the agitations of the South-easterners on the creation of a Biafran State as he has reiterated that the unity of Nigeria is not negotiable.
