Ohaneze Ndigbo has reiterated its preparedness to defend the reparations bill of $8.7 billion that it had presented to the Federal Government via the Oputa Commission. At the conclusion of one of its recent meetings, the secretary of the apex Igbo organization, Prof. Ben Nwabueze, asserted that the demand for reparations is “legitimate and irrevocable”. He solicited for understanding amongst potential critics of reparations to Ndigbo and asked them to consider the incalculable damages done to Igbos rather than focus on the sum of money demanded. “The primary thing is to document this ill-treatment and injustice against the Igbo race, to bring it to the attention of Nigerians and the whole world, and the need to redress the situation. That is the emphasis that should be laid and not money,” he concluded.

A body that would defend the memorandum, comprising mainly established lawyers of Igbo extraction, was said to have been raised to prepare their briefs preparatory to appearing before the Mr. Justice Chukwudifu Oputa (rtd) Human Rights Violation and Investigation Panel, where the petition had been sent.

On the petition sent to the Federal Government over the non-representation of Ndigbo at the Federal Security Council, he said no response had come yet.
