As far back as 1939, Mrs Sylvia Leith-Ross, a British scholar that did some researches on Igbo women observed and wrote this about ndị Igbo:
"onye okenye Igbo kwetere na ọ kaara ya mfe I ji oyibo ede ihe karịa I ji Igbo; na ọ bụrụ na e wete ederede abụọ chee ya n'ihu, otu, Igbo, nke ọzọ, oyibo, ọ ga eme ọsịsọ họrọ nke e dere n'oyibo makana n'uche ya, “Oyibo ka mfe ịgụ karịa Igbo”. Ọnọdụ asụsụ Igbo n'ọdịnihu ga-adịrịrị n'aka ndị Igbo n'onwe ha".
Yes the case of Anambra state immediate past governor, Mr Peter Obi has been trending for m,any reasons, the the allegation that he owns one of the apartment at the Osborne Ikoyi Mansion where EFCC discovered huge amount of money and the controversial speech he delivered at the Platform, a programme organised by Covenant Christian Centre, Lagos. With both events contradictory and raising concerns, lots of takes and voices have swayed in either ways on the Ex-governor's personal life.

The seemingly unending incerceration and brutality against Ndigbo singularly led by the commander-in-chief of the armed forces himself, who had sworn to oppress the Biafra agitators to submission and, who had said that the "unity of Nigeria is not negotiable" and therefore, all manner of injustices and mayhem were handed down on Biafra freedom fighters which claimed many lives of the agitators especially, the Independent People of Biafra, IPOB, he has graudally appeared to have lost his initial intensity because, of course, very obvious, his health is deteriorating..
Igbo is both a mystery and myth to the shallow minded. The depth of Igbo language underlines its authenticity and genuine power in both phonemes and morphemes. The lexical construction of Igbo words and their meanings also, marvel the mind as to how they came about.
Chijioke Ngobili shares this mystery in part, stressing the homographic depth as well, of these words.
We had just reported earlier of the US-Africa index report of the top world leaders who have recognition of the existence of the new Biafra activism. The popularity of Nnamdi Kanu and the Biafran movement which has swept the world was partly aided by the long detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu by the Buhari led federal government.
Here is the full report of the USOnline.com thoughtfully written by its founder Dr. Chido Nwangwu.
Ada-Igbo identified as Nkem on one of the social netwroks, gave out this information and somewhat a clarion call to all Biafran believers and fighters.
She draws the attention of everyone to the new dynamics in the Biafra struggle as a result of the conditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which technically subjected him to house arrest, stating that the Biafra struggle has taken the phase of diplomacy and international negotiations which Nnamdi Kanu will spearhead.
Here is what she wrote:
There are many natural resources in Igboland but they are all subsumed in the rich lands with the impeccable and unmatched human resources of the people.
The Igbo people commonly called Ndigbo and mistakenly ascribed the colonial concocted sobriquet “ebo” and “ibo,” are the land owners of the part of Nigeria known as the South East, a strongly marginalised but indisputably the most progressive and advanced ethnic enclave of the country.
Ada-Igbo and world acclaimed writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was the lead resource person/speaker at the historic event "Remembering Biafra" which was organized by the George Washington University Institute for African Studies, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) and Howard University.
The event which x-rayed the scope, depth, consequences and import of the Nigerian-Biafran saw resource persons giving clear exposure of the hostilities done to Biafrans by the British led Nigerian government.
Nwafor, Ani Chinonso puts out his argument plainly and to the reach of the layman to grasp. Intellectual tale of this that allows for deep thinking on the reality that bedevils our society does need some strong appreciation.
His thoughts are strongly rooted in the evdident moral decadence our society struggles from and how this decadence has festered our society and rendered every person in the society behave almost completely alike.

Despite his claims that Nnamdi Kanu had poured vituperations on him for his criticism against the Ideology of the Director of Radio Biafra, Chinwike Justice Oke-Nwosu is still undeterred in supporting the campaign of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which he believes is just a right course directed towards the enmacipation of Ndi-Igbo and addressing the injustices Ndi-Igbo face in Nigeria.
Moreover, Chinwike marvelled at the lion spirit, guts and strong determination of Nnamdi Kanu to continue the fight for Nid-Igbo, resolves to stand by him.
