Count Port Harcourt out of Biafra – Ex-NIA boss

Chief Albert Korubo Horsfall, a former Director-General of the Nigeria Intelligence Agency, NIA, has said that Port Harcourt won’t be part of Biafra.

According to him Port Harcourt is formerly known as Egweocha is one of the major South-South cities in the map of the Biafra agitators.

The city, which is the capital of Rivers State, was also one the last to be conquered during the 1967-1970 civil war.

But speaking to newsmen in Port Harcourt, the former NIA boss said, “Gowon declared no victor, no vanquished verdict and that concept is still there.

“We are living happily with everybody. Port Harcourt is the capital of Rivers State.

“From time-to-time the issue of Port Harcourt has been an object of agitation.

“Port Harcourt was one of the issues the so-called Biafra demanded and this matter was discussed in Kampala.

“I don’t know why people are worried about Biafra and want to resurrect and create tension which is totally unnecessary.

“Everybody has a right to agitate, but to agitate on somebody else’s territory is wrong.”

Concluding, he said if anybody wants to cede Port Harcourt, the person is looking for trouble.

  1. Can our dear chief Korubo explanation to us the language from which Egweocha was derived from
    The fact is that Port Hacourt is Igbo, pure and simple
    Besides the chief cannot speak for the Port Harcourt people
    He can only speak for himself as an individual
