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
