On Thursday the Ohanaeze Ndigbo socio-cultural organisation has moved the location of its 2023 Igbo Day celebration to an undisclosed venue in Rivers State.

Okechukwu Isiguzoro, factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, said the venue was moved due to a planned attack.

This year’s Igbo Day celebration was scheduled to be held on September 29 at the Liberation Stadium in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

However, Isiguzoro said the event was moved to an undisclosed location to forestall a reportedly planned attack.

Speaking with newsmen, Isiguzoro said: “The venue of this year’s Igbo day holding in Liberation Stadium has been moved to an undisclosed and restricted location in Rivers State.

“The change in venue followed security reports of a planned attack and disruption of the event. The latest development has been communicated to those affected.”
