In a chat with BBC News Pidgin, Igbokwe said the Igbos have married and made friends with people from across Nigeria.

“Some have mothers that are Igbos, and fathers Hausa. There have been inter-ethnic relationships for years.

“The only thing I want the federal government to do is the creation of additional state in the South-East. I have been advocating this.

“We will have 6 governors, more Senators, House of Representatives members, State of Assembly, state capital, university, take-off funds, more local governments.

“So many things will come up. 12,000 jobs will be created created immediately as there will be instant development in the zone”, Igbokwe said.
