The Biafran National Guard has declared war on the federal republic of Nigeria and has revealed that November 30 2021 will be the day the region will be declared as an independent state.
In a video making the rounds on social media, some armed men who claim to be members of the Biafran National Guard are declaring that they are ready for war.
One of the men is heard saying: “The liberation of Biafra has just begun. Today is Day 2 of our glorious week. You can see Biafran National Guards are already on the ground and they are on the move to go and rescue the prisoners of conscience – Mrs Onyekachi Orji and the rest of them.
“This is Biafran National Guards, as you can see them, they are all on alert. You can see they are ready for war, war for the liberation of Biafra has just begun.”
The man behind the camera also approached some men fuelling their vehicle who revealed that they were ready for war in the country.
As earlier reported by Naija News, the men had a confrontation with the Nigerian Army, leading to the death of one of the Biafran National Guard members.
In a statement made on Thursday, October 28, the Director of Army Public Relations, Onyema Nwachukwu, in a statement confirmed the death of one of the gunmen.
He said: “The assailants, who were heavily armed and conveyed in several vehicles opened fire on the troops’ location, but were met with stiff resistance by the troops. In the encounter, the troops neutralized one gunman, while others abandoned their vehicles and retreated in disarray with gunshot wounds. The troops also recovered a pump-action gun, among others.
“While the criminals withdrew, having been overwhelmed, they were promptly intercepted at Eda by troops of Forward Operating Base Ohaozara in Ebonyi State. The troops recovered additional three vehicles and apprehended one of the gunmen.”
