Biafra youth sympathise with Bakassi residents

15 April 2016, 21:31

Abuja - Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has maintained solidarity with communities displaced by the ceding of the Bakassi Peninsula to Cameroon.

Chimezie Obuka, leader of the youth pressure group, said, “We express strong solidarity and sympathize with our people the internally displaced Bakassi natives whose land, Bakassi Peninsula was ceded to La Republic du Cameroun (Republic of Cameroon) by Nigeria Government without plebiscites.”

He claimed the ceding of the peninsula was a ploy to frustrate the independence of Biafra.

Cameroon governs the Bakassi Peninsula following the transfer of sovereignty from neighbouring Nigeria as a result of a judgment by the International Court of Justice in 2002.

Obuka spoke against the arrangement.

We extend hand of friendship and cooperation to the people of former British Southern Cameroon administered alongside Eastern Nigeria under the National Council for Nigeria and Cameroon whose land La Republic du Cameroun annexed and subjugated.”

Bakassi inhabitants are mainly the Oron people, the people of Cross River and Akwa Ibom States of Nigeria.

The population of the region is put at between 150 000 and 300 000.
