Delta - The Delta State Government has distanced the state from the proposed Biafra Republic, reaffirming their belief in one and united Nigeria, Vanguard reports.
The Secretary to the State Government, Festus Agas, who disclosed the position of the state government urged the people of the state to remain law abiding and go about their normal business without fear.
