As the agitation for the creation of Biafra Republic continues to garner momentum, veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, has noted that Igbo people cannot fight any course together because they are not united.

While speaking with newsmen at an event that mark his 70th birthday, legendary Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, disclosed that the Igbo people cannot fight any course together because they are not united.

The veteran movie star who spoke in Igbo language, said Igbos are scattered, with no particular goal, adding that it is not struggle for anything that will bring them together but their cultural values.

According to the 70-year-old thespian, most Igbos do not even speak their language again, while calling on Igbo leaders to seek ways to bring the people together.

“There are so many issues making me shed tears. One of them is that Igbo people are scattered. They are not in unity.

“If you take a close look at the Igbo, you will realize that they cannot fight together. Look, it’s not struggle for anything that will bring Igbo people together.

“Have you noticed that only Igbo people pray before eating kola nut? Why I’m saying this is because it is only the culture of the Igbo that can unite them.

“If you take a close look, you will also notice that in the whole of Nigeria, the Igbo people are the ones very mad about speaking English.

“A Hausa boy will not greet his father in English. A Yoruba person will not greet his/her father in English.

“But Igbo person will say ‘good morning sir’ instead of his local greeting. It is painful that the Igbo language is receding and no one is doing anything about it.”

Baby Eli dies

Eli Thompson, the baby born without a nose, dies at 2 years old

Eli Thompson, who attracted worldwide media attention after he was born without a nose, died Saturday evening, according to his father, Jeremy Finch.

Eli had turned two years old on March 4.

He was pronounced dead at around 10:40 p.m. at Springhill Medical Center in Mobile, Finch said.

Eli was "very, very bright and happy, always smiling and giving everybody fist bumps," Finch said in a phone interview Sunday morning.

He used baby sign language, and Finch was starting to do speech therapy at home with a speaking valve, he said. "His favorite sign was 'cookie,'" he said. The first thing he did every morning was to ask for a cookie, and he recently received the "Cookie Monster Award" from his daycare.

"He touched a lot of people's lives," Finch said, with tears in his voice. "A lot of people cared about him."

Eli was born at South Baldwin Hospital in Foley, then immediately transported to USA Children's and Women's Hospital in Mobile. He received a tracheotomy at 5 days old.

Through a no longer extant Facebook page called Eli's Story, thousands of people followed the tale of the baby born with arhinia, a rare facial anomaly said to affect only one in 197 million births.

When he was 7 months old, Eli met another child, Tessa Evans of Ireland, then 2 1/2 years old, who also had arhinia.


"To get to introduce Tessa to Eli was like a dream come true and it meant the world to us to sit and talk with his family," Tessa's mother, Grainne Evans, wrote after the meeting. "Tessa was totally taken with Eli and hugged him and stroked his head. Watching Eli gaze up at her was too precious for words."
