Abuja - Leader of the Biafra Nations Youth
League (BNYL), Prince Chimezie Obuka, said some members of a community
demanding independence from Cameroon was backing similar plans in Nigeria where
there have been demands for the freedom of Biafra.
Obuka said this after a recent meeting with delegates
from the so-called Former British Southern Cameroon.
The meeting was in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.
“We will not disclose their identities to avoid being
hunted down by the Government of La Republic du Cameroun, but we arrived at a
very good decision, though my members have to conclude in the second congress,”
said Obuka ahead of the congress slated for Saturday.

He said the delegates from Cameroon were sent by
Liberation Governing Council of Former British Southern Cameroon “and not
Rufasca, though with the influence of Rufasca.”
“They should not be regarded as separatist or
secessionists because their land (Ambazonia) was annexed, subjugated by La
Republic du Cameroun and it's only an independent Biafran State that will force
the artificial government out from Ambazonia including Bakassi Peninsula,” said
“In fact, they hinted that the Biafra war was
supposed to have started from the Ambazonia, and that the blockade of Biafra
through Bakassi would not have been effective.”
