The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), said it has commenced the construction of a Briafran University in Anambra state.
The Ralph Uwazuruike-led group, popularly called the Biafran Independent Movement (BIM), stated that the university which is known as Dim Chukwuemeka Odumehwu Standard University is located at Anaka, Ayamelum local government area of the state.
The Anambra North Zonal leader of the group, Damian Nzekwe, who disclosed the news in Onitsha during the celebration of his one year in office, said that the institution has over 200 plots of land at the site.
“We conceived to build this university some years back when our leader, Ralph Uwazuruike advised us on the need to bequeath Biafrans a legacy for posterity. The edifice, when completed, will boost education in the land as our target is to have zero tolerance for illiteracy.
“It may also interest you to know that this zone has embarked on the construction of its secretariat and the building has gotten up to lintel level in Anaku. The secretariat is expected to be completed this year and we hope it will also be commissioned this year by our leader, Chief Uwazuruike,” he stated.
Appreciating the leadership of the body for finding him worthy to head the zone, Nzekwe promised to leave the zone better than he met it.
