Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state has erected a cenotaph in honour of fallen Biafran heroes.

Situated at the Alex Ekwueme Square, the cenotaph has the names of all Biafran heroes who had died during the Civil War.

“Without memory, life assumes the attributes of a futile gaze into the void of time,” Obiano said according to Vanguard.

“Let’s Celebrate the bravery of these great spirits who lost their lives yesterday that we may find peace today,” the governor added.
