The Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ebonyi State, Mr. Nwoba Chika Nwoba has been invited by the Department of State Services (DSS) over his wedding cake which was prepared with insignia of the defunct Biafra Republic.
Mr. Nwoba and his wife, Onyinyechi, surprised their guests at their wedding reception on the ground when they unveiled a cake designed with everything that has to do with the defunct Biafra Republic.
The wedding took place on Saturday at St. Joseph Anglican church, in his country home, Ekpelu community in Ikwo LGA of the State on Saturday, June 25, 2022. The reception also took place in the community primary school.

Mr. Nwoba’s invitation by the DSS may not be unconnected to his wedding cake.
Recall that the Nigerian government banned everything that’s associated with the defunct Biafra Republic after the proscription of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which is one of the foremost Igbo separatists agitating for a breakaway from the Nigerian State.
Since the prosecution of IPOB by the Nigerian government, anyone found with an item bearing Biafra insignia faces arrest and prosecution by the Nigerian government.
Now in a telephone chat on Sunday that he did his wedding cake with Biafra insignia as a show of solidarity with Biafra agitation.
According to him, every Igbo man no matter his political affiliation ought to embrace the struggle for the creation of Biafra.
