It all started with the late Col. Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, who was enraged by the systematic slaughter of Southeasterners in the north and declared a breakaway republic. This triggered a two-and-a-half-year civil war in Nigeria. The war may be over, but the call for a Biafra Republic lives on like a ghost. Ojukwu lost the war, fled to the Ivory Coast, and returned only after Shehu Shagari pardoned him. His support for Biafra did not end with his return to Nigeria. It was just not as pronounced or militant. Chief Ralph Uwazuruike's Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra had taken over the advocacy (MASSOB). The advocacy became far more militant and gained national traction, prompting Ojukwu to publicly hug Uwazuruike and declare that he had finally found a successor. When MASSOB's resonance faded, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) appeared in Nigeria's political universe, with Simon Ekpa as one of the most outspoken and unstoppable voices.
