Biafra Group Speaks On Nnamdi Kanu/Dokubo Rift

Published

 

The Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has urged the people of the former Eastern region not to lose focus in the Biafra struggle.

The group was reacting to a rift between the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu and a former militant leader, Asari Dokubo over the last election.

In a statement sent to Naija News by the Deputy Leader of the BNYL and Director of Operations, Biafra Broadcasting Service (BBS TV) Ebuta Ogar Takon, the pro-Biafra group said the struggle will not be distracted by the misunderstanding amongst pro-Biafra groups.

BNYL said that those who have nothing to offer in the Biafra struggle should not distract the movement.

“I think it is time to stop blaming and seek the way forward, to us, Kanu is just one man doing what he knows best,” the statement reads.

“He doesn’t own Biafra neither is he commanding other groups, I don’t buy into most of his ideologies.

“But I don’t waste my time emphasising on the issue of his strategies because I am not perfect neither are we BNYL perfect.

“Some people have formed it as a habit to quarrel like market women just for their noise-making to be heard, I had waited patiently waiting for many of them to provide a solution to the freedom of our people.”

“I went on a low key when because I was so disappointed by my Igbo colleagues abandoned the struggle for Vice Presidential slot, many of them left the struggle while some were on the fence, it shows they were not actually fighting for liberation.

“No through freedom fighter will abandon his struggle for political benefits, Nigeria has nothing to offer us, and because Peter Obi who was recommended by Jonathan whom the north detest, and pushed out, and because he is an Igbo, a Biafran they ganged up with INEC to rig PDP out,” he added.
