The peace and reconciliatory meeting is part of a larger plan by the southeast governors to meet and brainstorm on the current insecurity issues plaguing the region in the past months.
The group amongst other things had vowed to shut down the southeast region in celebration of the day.
30th May is a day where Biafrans from all over the world mark their national day which aims to remember their fallen comrades in the struggle during the civil war.
Meanwhile, In a bid to forestall a complete breakdown of law and order after the southeast shut down was announced, the Elders in the southeest had decided to set up and successfully hold the peace and reconciliatory meeting.
Ohanaze had sent out invites to Ralph Uwazuruike's Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, The Biafran National League BNL, the Biafran Zionist Movement, BZM, and even the Eastern security Network, ESN, and other movement and organizations operating in the region.
However, IPOB was conspicuously left out among the list of invited groups.
Speaking and giving reasons why IPOB was left out, Ohanaeze mentioned that it was because IPOB has already been proscribed by the government and for having that tag, the group is deemed illegitimate.
While this may be true, it is worthy to note that the major issues in the southeast is anchored around IPOB and if the Ohanaeze wants to reach IPOB by proxy through the ESN which they have invited, then there will be light at the end of the tunnel.
