18 pro-Biafra groups dismiss Feb 23 elections
105 thugs held with cocaine, other hard drugs in Kano
A coalition of 18 pro-Biafra groups has restated their resolve to work for the actualisation of an independent country, insisting on the existence of Biafra.
They described last week’s general election as an exercise in idiocy and futility and, at best, a rape of democracy.
The groups include Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Eastern Peoples’ Congress (EPC), Igbo Youth Cultural and Restoration Initiative (IYCRI), Bilie Human Rights Initiative (BHRI), Movement of Biafrans in Nigeria (MOBIN), Salvation People of Biafra (SP), World Union of Biafran Scientists (WUBS) and Shadow Government of Biafra (SGB).
Others are the Biafran National Liberation Council (BNLC), Biafran Revolutionary Organisation (BRO), Biafran Liberation Crusade (BLC), Joint Revolutionary Council of Biafra (JRCB), Biafra Revolutionary Force (BRF), Customary Government of Biafra (CGB), Biafran Intellectual Clergy Forum (BICF), Biafra Movement for Sovereignty (BIAMOS), Biafran Central Council (BCC) and Biafran United Liberation Council (BULCO).
In a statement released in Awka, Anambra State yesterday, MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu; director-general of MOBIN, Eberechukwu Anigbogu; Innocent Amadi of BHRI and Okechukwu Orji of EPC, on behalf of the coalition, berated the Federal Government for not inability to conduct a “common election”.
In another vein, the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) said its operatives arrested no fewer than 105 suspected political thugs during the elections in Kano State.
