The Biafra Nations League, BNL, has dismissed claims by the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, that the Rivers State people are not part of the Biafra struggle, by asking him to conduct a referendum in the State to be sure if the people want Biafra.
National Leader of BNL, Prince Chimezie Richard, said this on Sunday, after a meeting with Ikwerre youths in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The BNL leader reminded the Governor that it was his (Wike) Ikwerre brothers that championed the pro-Biafra protests in Port Harcourt, the state capital, adding that it was unfortunate that most of the protesters were allegedly shot by soldiers.
Reacting to the visits by Federal Government delegations and meetings with the South East governors, BNL noted that it won’t stop the agitation of Biafra, urged Southeasterners not to be carried away by the Presidential delegation to the region, adding that Governors and others present in the meeting do not command respect in the region.
Chimezie also dismissed endorsement of Igbo Presidency by some groups that were invited to the Enugu Government House meeting.
