Delta youths threaten oil block over Biafra violations

15 December 2015, 15:03Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - A violent storm is brewing in the Niger Delta after the Biafra National Youth League (BNYL) threatened to halt oil production if alleged violations against Biafra protestors are not stopped.

The group’s Regional Coordinator, Washington Uzutameh warned the security agencies to stop the clamp down amid protests for the independence from Nigeria.

“The killing of armless Biafra protesters has become a routine occurrence thus reminding us of the painful era of the Biafran war. We may be forced to go on self defence and equally stop oil production if the killings continue,” said Uzutameh.

He said the group was demanding the release of Nnamdi Kanu, a pro-Biafra independence advocate, who has been held in detention despite securing bail.

The Department of State Services alleges Kanu, who has been in custody since October, was sponsoring terrorism

“We are all Biafrans, we are only exercising our right to freedom. Nnamdi Kanu should be released immediately otherwise things will get out of hands. We are part of the demonstration, and we will not relent even after Kanu's release,” the youth leader said.

It has been reported BNYL, has met leaders of the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta, said to be one of the largest militant groups in the oil-rich region. – CAJ News
