An elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, has said the Southsouth region will not be a part of the Republic of Biafra when actualised, adding that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was wrong by including the region as part of Biafraland.

Clark, who stated that the detained IPOB leader Nnamdi Kanu is fighting for a good cause but through a wrong approach believes the Southeast has been shortchanged in federal appointments and also deserves a sixth state at least.

Speaking with BBC Pidgin, the former minister said: “They are very unrealistic boys. To me, IPOB is not pursuing the right thing.

“I told him (Kanu) that he has a good fight, that the people of the East are being neglected. They have only five states, whereas other regions have six. In fact, one has seven. Based on what? Nobody knows.

“For every appointment that is being made in this country, the Igbo are shortchanged. If Universities are being distributed per state, they will have five. Others will have six while Northwest will have seven.”
