Rita Edochie claimed that some Igbos deny links with Biafra because of what they could currently benefit from.

The actress spoke in a video shared via her Instagram page.

In the music video, a woman, whom she referred to as “Fulani”, was heard countering the claim that she belongs to the ethnic group.

No one knows if the woman who could be seen soliciting a Christmas present from an Igbo man in the video is of Fulani origin.

Edochie also provided no evidence to support his claim that the woman is truly a Fulani.

However, referencing the clip, the movie star compared some Igbos to the woman, saying they like to ‘deny Biafra because of what they could benefit from today’.

Edochie said the “selfishness” of such a group of people affects efforts by others in the southeastern region to achieve secession.

“Have you seen what hunger can cause? She denied being a Fulani woman due to hunger,” she wrote.

“The same way some of our Igbo brothers and sisters deny Biafra because of what they could benefit from today without thinking about what will happen tomorrow, but the good thing is that their selfishness affects us all.”
