Abuja - The Deputy Leader of Biafra Nations
Youth League, Ebuta Takon, has called for unity among communities to ensure the
independence of Biafra from Nigeria.
He particularly appealed to the people of South-south.
“It is ridiculous for some people in South south to say
they are not Biafrans and prefer Nigeria, if I may ask, who are we?” quipped
“There are so many agitations in South south, you hear of
Ogoni agitations for a Republic, you hear of Niger Delta, you hear of Bakassi
Republic, and so on, it baffles me that we are on the wrong track.”

He expressed surprise that some Igbos in Rivers and Delta
“hid under the auspicious of Niger Delta to curry favor from Nigeria.”
“We must not continue to be deceived by Northerners, they
do this to claim more oil well in South south,” said Takon.
“I also advise the Igbo Biafrans to stop regarding the people
from South south as saboteurs,” added Takon.
Biafra Nations Youth League is among organisations
advocating for the independence of Biafra.
Biafra was a secessionist state in then
southeastern Nigeria that existed from 1967 to 1970.
