Former Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, has cautioned about the consequences of the break of Nigeria.
The increased agitation has occurred in Nigeria’s southern region, with organisations such as the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) pushing towards the country’s disintegration.
In addition, the Yorubas have begun to campaign for the establishment of the Oduduwa Republic, with secessionist calls on the rise.
Senator Representing Imo West District, however, has warned that if Nigeria breaks up, the Igbos will be the hardest hurt, and that the South-East should focus on rebuilding the country rather than allowing it to disintegrate.

“It is only an Igbo man that goes to a place and remains put in that place, buys a land and builds a house for his family without feeling insecure. The Igbos will lose more if Nigeria divides.” Okorocha said to some women groups in Abuja over the weekend.
“Most Nigerian leaders who were successful had one thing or the other to do with the Igbos. It is either they married Igbo women or had some links with them. I can call names like former President, (Olusegun) Obasanjo; former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Buba Marwa, just to name a few”.
