Uche Okwukwu from Elele Alimini in the Ikwerre part of Rivers state and other non Igbos were pioneer executive members of MASSOB. I do not know much about the executive formation of IPOB, but I was reliably informed that there are non Igbos in the executive.
As for Philip Effiong, we should be assessing the man's comments based on the prevailing circumstances when the alleged comments were made.
Most of Zik's comments about Biafra should also be situated in the context of his well known personal relationship with Ojukwu.
