President Muhammadu Buhari has been condemned by the Biafra Nations League over his recent comments where he vowed to send army and police to deal with the Indigenous People of Biafra.
Buhari during an interview with Arise TV also described the region as ‘a dot in the circle’, has ‘access to nowhere.’
The leader of the group, Chimezie Richard, in a statement released on Sunday, condemned the President for limiting Biafra to five Southeast States alone.
He said that Buhari was very much aware that Igbos dominate and are Indigenes of states in the South-South.
The BNL leader said it has “access to many places in the South East and South-South, including access to acquire anything through Bakassi Peninsula.”
He threatened that BNL will frustrate the Federal Government in the region, adding that its members who are mostly indigenes of border towns in Cross River, Akwa Ibom and Bakassi Peninsula are fighting for the same Biafra which IPOB or MASSOB is fighting for.
Also speaking, the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, said there is no way Igbos in Kogi, Benue, Cross River, Edo, Bayelsa, Delta, Rivers would be left behind when seceding from Nigeria.
Kanu said that the region may be a small dot in the map, but big people.
He tweeted, “I’m compelled to accept the 5 Igbo states (SE) as Biafra, what will be the fate of indigenous Igbo people gerrymandered into other states like Edo, Kogi, Benue, Cross River, Rivers, Benue, Bayelsa and Delta states? Does it mean they are no longer Igbo? Small Dot, Big People.”
