Jonathan Cooper, a British born and human rights specialist has said that Biafra is entitled to self-determination and has rights to separate from Nigeria.
The lawyer who works with the European Union (EU) Charter on fundamental rights and equity rights said this in reaction to the United States Declaration of Independence on Sunday.
Jonathan via a tweet on his verified handle said: “I read the US #DeclarationOfIndependence on # 4th July.
“It’s a fine affirmation of the Right of Self Determination.
“But if the case is made for the 13 Colonies, others are also entitled to independence.
“#Biafra has a right to self-determination from #Nigeria”.
