BIAFRA: Urhobo nation has nothing in common with Igbo, remove Urhoboland from your map - Urhobo Progress Union warns KANU

The Urhobo nation could and would stand alone in case of any eventuality,  The leader of the Urhobo Progress Union(UPU), Moses Taiga has told the Biafran agitators to immediately remove Urhoboland from the 'Biafra' political map.
This was in reaction to the claims by the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) that the Urhobo nation and the entire Delta state is part of proposed 'Biafra'.
In an interview with Vanguard, Taiga explained that Urhobo nation has nothing in common either in the immediate or distant past with the Igbos and there see no reason for their inclusion.
He said: “I take the position of the Southern Leaders Forum that some of those statements are for negotiations.We the Urhobo Nation know we are not even neighbours to some of those people who said we are part of them. 

We have the Ijaw to the west, we have the Edo to the north, and we have the Anioma to the northeast, so there is nothing that binds us. There is no correlation between us, and we also have the natural River Niger that separates us there is, therefore, no case in that.
The issue is does somebody draw an artificial map and say Edo and Delta are part of his own.The Young man, Nnamdi Kanu lives in England and makes all sorts of claims. The Southern Leaders Forum said any attack on any party of the South is an attack against the whole South, so we do not intend to select any nation in the whole of the South for special attack.
We are not part of any other kingdom; we are the fourth largest nation in the country, and we’ve not fought hard enough to secure our rightful place, but our job is to try to articulate our position and ensure that we are due for recognition.”
