The Biafran National Guard, BNG has vowed that President Muhammadu Buhari would be the last leader of Nigeria to visit Biafraland.
This was contained in a release issued after the oath-swearing ceremony of newly appointed BNG Excos at their National headquarters in Nsukka, Enugu State.
The BNG has appointed and decorated a new leader General Innocent Orji, who now heads the Biafra Supreme Military Council of Administration [BSMCA], Biafran Transitional Parliament [BTP] and Biafran Judiciary.
Orji commended the Biafran National Guard and its wings of Biafran Army, Biafran Air-Force, Biafran Navy and Biafran Detective Force for their steadfastness and determination during his time on sabbatical. He pledged not to fail the personnel in the quest for the restoration of Biafra sovereignty as he will enforce every knowledge and connections he acquired while on sabbatical.
Orji vehemently kicked against the visitation of the Nigerian State President Muhammadu Buhari to Imo state under the invitation of defunct governor Hope Uzodinma.
He disclosed that the actual intention of Uzodinma’s invitation to Buhari is to intimidate the detained IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, whom he accuses of orchestrating the arson at his country home and continuous crisis in Imo state.
The Biafran Military Head also declared the visit of Muhammadu Buhari as the last by a Nigeria President. He laughed out at the use of ballistic shields by Buhari‘s security team during the visit; emphasising that no form of weapon shall be enough to protect him from the wrath of BNG if he dares ventures into Biafraland again.
He also lamented the conspiratory silence by politicians of Biafran origin over the rehabilitation and reintegration of BokoHaram/Fulani Herdsmen terrorists into the society by the Nigerian Presidency while Indigenous Biafrans are extra-judicially arrested, detained and even killed by Nigerian security forces.
General Orji warned that no harm should befall Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who was renditioned back to abducted Nigeria. He also demanded the release of Biafran prisoners of conscience who had been in Awka and Onitsha prisons for the past 15 years.
These prisoners of conscience are Mrs. Onyekachi Orji, Uche Idikaigbo, Michael Okezie, Uchenna Nicholas, Peter Igbokwe, Ikechukwu Aghara, Miss Okwudiri Bassey, Chima Asor and Chinweike Irondi.
Others are Sabastine Amadi, Casmir Odakara, Ojemba Anyanwu, Eni Kalu, Ndubisi Okam, Ikechukwu Chikwem, Emmanuel Orji, Chukwuma Kalu, Chidiebere Chikwem and Mmaduabuchi Asika.
Orji vowed to restore the dignity of these Biafran prisoners of conscience held unjustly for over fifteen years using whatever strategy it shall entails.
He pointed out an extract in the second paragraph of the ‘Introduction’ on the CHARTER OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLES AND THE UNITED NATIONS HUMAN RIGHTS SYSTEM which states as thus: ”One of its main achievements was the General Assembly’s adoption in 2007 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which, by 2010, was supported by the vast majority of United Nations Member States and opposed by none.”
“The Nigeria State has never opposed the right to self-determination at the UN General Assembly and has even propagated the same right for the people of Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, SADR, otherwise called Western Sahara. But opposes the same right to self-determination for Indigenous Biafrans, accusing us of treason and terrorism, such wickedness!” he added.
Orji also reiterated that the Biafran National Guard is in accordance with Article 1 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) which reaffirms that “Indigenous peoples have the right to the full enjoyment, as a collective or as individuals, human rights and fundamental freedoms as recognized in the Charter of the United Nations, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and international human rights law.
Orji has called on all Biafrans across the globe to start making preparations for the Independence of Biafra , warning that his words must never be taken for granted so as not to become victims.
