An octogenarian music legend, Prof. Goddy Ezike, has joined the agitation for the creation of the sovereign state of Biafra.
He titled his new album ‘Monkey Police,’ as his strategy for calling on the Federal Government to listen to Biafra agitators for the creation of the sovereign state of Biafra.
He said the Biafran issue was similar to the story in the bible, when the Israelites were demanding from Pharaoh to be allowed to go since the Egyptians enslaved them and God told Pharaoh, “let my people go!”
Briefing newsmen in Onitsha, Anambra State, the music legend, who spoke through his manager, Apostle Tony Okechukwu Ugonna Chinyere, said, “We are not safe in a country where we are part and parcel of,” noting that there were killings and maiming of innocent Nigerians every day, the latest being the massacre of indigenes of Benue State on January 1 this year by assailants said to be herdsmen, he said the Federal Government, instead of arresting the suspects, turned its face the other way.
“So, this latest album is in synergy with Biafra agitators for freedom, independence from dictatorship and oppression against the Igbo. The Igbo now prefer to be independent and that is what Nnamdi Kanu, the Director of Radio Biafra, London, is agitating for.”
Also speaking, the sole marketer of the album, Chief Paul Ubaoha Uzoma, (PUZ Records and Enterprises), who was award the Mayor of Basilica of Most Holy Trinity, (Catholic Men Organization), Onitsha, said the album is now hot cake in the market.
