Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL, on Thursday said it will not hoist Biafra flags on 30th May to mark the Biafra Day celebration.
BNYL Deputy National Leader, Ebuta Takon Akor made the disclosure in a statement he signed and sent to DAILY POST.
May 30th is a day set aside annually to commemorate those who died during the Biafra civil war.
However, Akor lamented the continuous lockdown which he said has “become a barrier to this year’s Biafra Day” celebration.
According to Akor, “There is no plan to hoist Biafra flag” during this year’s Biafra Day celebration.”
He urged members and supporters of the group to pray for departed heroes of Biafra war on Saturday.
The group also disassociated its members from the Biafra parliament inaugurated in Cross River and Akwa Ibom States by the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB.
BNYL described it as invalid, adding that it was “wrong to have a parliament in an existing parliament.”
Akor stated that pro-Biafrans are expected to come together and sack members of the parliament using their voting strength and replace them with Biafra friendly legislatures “whereby they refused to pass bill on Biafra’s right to leave, we will revolt against them in all ramifications”.
He also advised the MASSOB leader, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike to limit his struggle to the title of ” Eze Ndigbo” and stop creating confusion outside Igbo land.
Ebuta stated that anybody who goes with the title of “Eze Ndigbo”, ” Obong Efik”, “Amanyanabo Ijaw” is not a national leader and should focus on his subjects.
