Biafra youth warn troops against fomenting violence

28 September 2016, 20:25

Lagos - The Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has warned government over the continued violation of rights of pro-Biafra supporters.

The youth organization reported troops deployed by the government were the major cause of the violence at the Bakassi Peninsula where they were reportedly deployed to prevent members of the group meeting refugees in the peninsula.

“It is clear to everyone that Nigerian government only haunts civilians. They heard of our planned visit to the refugees and sent troops to the Peninsula where they met trouble by our sympathizers in the creeks,” said Mmeyene Etim, BNYL Media and Publicity Secretary.

“I don't think they know that a peaceful Organization like Biafra Nations Youth League cannot be easily cracked down,” added Etim.

“Following us about anywhere we announce our program is suicidal because those boys in the coastal creeks who want Biafra today and tomorrow will continue to engage them in battle.”

Etim said government did not appreciate the fact BNYL was doing “everything possible” to stop the violence in Akwa-Cross Delta and Niger Delta.

“We will leave the situation to continue to worsen hence they are still using force on us,” said Etim.

BNYL is among groups demanding independence of the Biafra from Nigeria.
