President Mohammadu Buhari has been chastised by the Biafra Nations League (BNL) for his recent comments in which he compared the South East to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and threatened to send the army and police to deal with them.
In an interview with Arise TV, Buhari further stated that if the region secedes, it will be a “dot in the circle” with “access to nowhere.”
Prince Chimezie Richard, the leader of the BNL, attacked Buhari in a message to the DAILY POST on Sunday, accusing him of attempting to confine Biafra to just five Southeast states.
Bubari was well aware, he claimed, that Igbos dominate and are indigenous to states in the South South.
The BNL leader said it has “access to many places in the South East and South South, including access to acquire anything through Bakassi Peninsula.”
He vowed that the group will frustrate the Nigerian government presence in the region, adding that the group whose members are mostly indigenes of border towns in Cross River, Akwa Ibom and Bakassi Peninsula is fighting for the same Biafra which IPOB or MASSOB is fighting for.
Kanu said that the region may be a small dot in the map, but big people.
He tweeted, “I’m compelled to accept the 5 Igbo states (SE) as Biafra, what will be the fate of indigenous Igbo people gerrymandered into other states like Edo, Kogi, Benue, Cross River, Rivers, Benue, Bayelsa and Delta states? Does it mean they are no longer Igbo? Small Dot, Big People.”
