Osadebay said "The Western Ibos joined with the Ibos living immediately East of the Niger in Onitsha, Ogbaru and Anambra local govern- ment areas to demand the creation of a Niger State" (Osadebay, Anioma: Story of a dream state, 1991).Continuing, Osadebay added, "When the Commission sat at Onitsha, the late Sir Louis Mbanefo, a great legal luminary, who served as Chief Justice of Eastern Nigeria, gave evidence and told the Commission that Onitsha, Ogbaru and Anambra local government areas should not be joined to the Ibos west of the Niger to form Niger State and the Irikefe Commission did not recommend the Niger State demanded by the Ibos, but recommended the Niger State now in the Northern part of the country."

The late Chief Dennis Osadebay, who spearheaded the whole movement constantly requested a separate province for Ibos who live west of the River Niger".It was not until the short-lived administration of General Murtala Mohammed in 1975 did Onitsha became associated with the demand to create a Niger State".
