On Thursday, June 29, 7 pro-Biafra groups, agreed to work together under the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
According to them, their aim is to achieve the quest for referendum that will lead to the formation of the Republic of Biafra.
The groups said they decided to work together so that they would be speaking with one voice, seeking one objective of securing the Republic of Biafra.
Recent comments from the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), in Anambra state are being viewed as jealousy. The party had said Kanu, should stop parading himself as an Igbo Emperor.

IPOB has however said APGA will cease to exist as a political party after November 18 gubernatorial election in the state.
In his reaction, Nnamdi Kanu said he was humbled by the decision of the various groups and assured that he would not let them down.
He said: “I am humbled by this decision of the groups. We started together and we have all ended up together because we are sincere and purposeful. I am not in the habit of letting my friends down.
“Everybody will be carried along; if I am invited for any meeting, I will take some people along. Today is a great day for Biafrans all over the world.
“Today, we have shamed our enemies that think that we cannot come together, who think that if we get Biafra, we will kill ourselves, we have shamed them.”
Kanu also said he does not believe in the restructuring of Nigeria being called by eminent Nigerians, saying that Nigerian Government would not keep any agreement reached in the restructuring exercise.
According to him, it is referendum or nothing. He said Aburi agreement was reneged on by Nigerian Government and that the 2014 National Conference was dumped where it was coated by dust until the Biafra agitation became intense and it was remembered.
We earlier reported that the United States ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington, has said those calling for secession in Nigeria will be overcome by Nigerians who support the unity of the country.
Symington, speaking at an event held in commemoration of the 241st anniversary of American independence in Abuja on Thursday, June 29, drew similarities between Nigeria and America.
