The oil-producing communities in Oguta local government of Imo State have collectively pledged to be part of the restoration of the sovereign state of Biafra anchored by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. This declaration was made in Awa community during the zonal family meeting of IPOB, Oguta zone. The indigenes of Oguta also demanded for the immediate release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who they praised for speaking the truth. Though the people cannot access the signals of Radio Biafra, in desperate effort to get well-informed, selected few travel to Owerri town which is far from the community in order to purchase Biafra news publications to be read to others.

The IPOB family in Oguta zone has a large followership of men, women and children. Even cabinet members from the palace refused to be left out as they gleefully took the oath for the restoration of Biafra. The zonal coordinator promised that the IPOB family members of the zone, will begin a massive evangelism in every village, town and neighboring communities. Also, the women leader pledged the support of the women of Oguta local government, as they prepare to protest against the illegal detention of Nnamdi Kanu and other Biafrans, as recently done by the women in Akwa Ibom, Asaba and Ugwuocha (Port Harcourt).

Oguta local government is made up of communities with huge oil and gas deposit, as against the hoax that there is no crude oil in the Igbo clan of Biafra Land. The communities are largely neglected by both the Federal and State government, as no sign of development is found in the communities except bill boards of abandoned projects of NDDC. The long stretched road is riddled with pot-holes and gullies, the only visible improvement observed in the Primary and Secondary schools is the football field which is taken care of by the youths. Pipe-borne water is a luxury in the communities and the people do not dream of power supply as there is no transformer or cable installed to give them hope. While the drilling of oil continues unabated by the oil companies, what the people of Oguta dream about is the restoration of Biafra.

As the Indigenes of the villages and towns in Oguta local government unite in Awa community, to begin the quest for the restoration of Biafra, they are appealing for the installation of Radio Biafra relay station in Imo state. They have also pledge their utmost availability in whatever way the leadership of IPOB requires of them. They have pledged “Biafra or Death.”
